ANNAPOLIS, Maryland — Bay Village Assisted Living & Memory Care has been certified as a Great Place to Work by World’s Best Workplaces.
“Bay Village truly is a great place to work,” said Nia Imani, a team member at the senior living community. “I enjoy our staff and especially appreciate our residents — helping them live their best lives and getting to know them, interacting with their families. We don’t have a very large facility, but I think that makes us unique and allows us to become and remain connected to our residents and their needs.”
Bay Village is among 15 IntegraCare senior living communities to achieve the prestigious certification. World’s Best Workplaces’ data scientists gather and evaluate employee feedback and use rigorous methodology to recognize companies who have built high-trust, high-performance company cultures.
“The Great Place to Work certification reinforces the importance of IntegraCare’s 3-Dimensional Focus,” said IntegraCare CEO Larry Rouvelas. “We create a culture of care and well-being through providing a support system for our team members, who in turn provide excellent care for our residents, and peace of mind for their loved ones. We improve the quality of life for our team members, our residents and their family members.”
The Great Place to Work research includes data compiled from over 100 million employee engagement surveys worldwide. The annual study of workplace excellence is considered a “gold standard” certification process based on employee feedback and details about the programs and practices that make a workplace unique.
“We are so happy to have achieved the Great Place to Work award because people are at the heart of what we do,” said Shannon Joyce, Director of Human Resources and Risk Management at IntegraCare. “We have always strived to create a culture where we put our team members first, and we create many of our benefit programs with that in mind. It really is an honor to know that our teams feel the same way.”
IntegraCare team members in senior living communities located in three states responded anonymously to the survey conducted by World’s Best Workplaces.
“The staff, management and our residents are very friendly at Bay Village,” said team member Ashley Mackell. “Everyone here is very hands on.”
Responses addressed many topics, including how the IntegraCare leadership team welcomes prospective and new team members.
“There are few things that I can think of in life that are as honorable as being trusted to serve and love others, and that’s what we take pride in doing at Bay Village,” said team member Bernadette Pruitt.
