Great Place to Work badgeWe are excited to announce that Chelsea Jewish Lifecare has received the prestigious Great Place to Work® designation. The certification process involved surveying employees on more than 60 elements and was bestowed upon the organization by the Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights, a global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures. Employees were surveyed about such topics as community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and the feeling their work environment is safe. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do. Other organizations that have received this prestigious designation include American Express, Hilton, Target, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Whole Foods Market.

“I am so proud that our employees feel our organization is a great place to work,” said Adam Berman, CEO of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare. “They are what make this organization so special and it’s gratifying to know they really enjoy the work environment. Our employees support our residents and families in so many important ways. Clearly this designation is a testament to the culture they have helped build.”

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Chelsea Jewish Lifecare is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

The Chelsea Jewish Lifecare residences and agencies include the Harriett and Ralph Kaplan Estates, Shapiro-Rudolph Adult Day Health Center and Jeffrey and Susan Brudnick Center for Living in Peabody; the Katzman Family Center for Living, Cohen Florence Levine Estates, Florence & Chafetz Home for Specialized Care, Chelsea Jewish VNA and Hospice, and the Leonard Florence Center for Living, all in Chelsea.

Berman noted the original goal of the survey was to receive candid feedback from employees. “It was a pleasant surprise to be honored with this certification,” stated Berman. He emphasized that the employee responses are a valuable tool for the continued growth of the organization. “I have personally read each and every comment and will take to heart all suggestions and recommendations.” Added Berman, “We have created a supportive, caring, and productive culture, which translates to the high-quality care we provide to our residents. But there is work to do to further improve. Such improvement will always be our first priority.”

Chelsea Jewish Lifecare received this certification along with Legacy Lifecare, the network of not-for-profit organizations of which it is a founding affiliate and member. Other affiliates include JGS Lifecare of Longmeadow, Deutsches Altenheim of West Roxbury, and Elizabeth Seton Residence and Marillac Residence of Wellesley.

We applaud all our employees who make our organization so very special!
