86% of employees say we’re a Great Place to Work!

Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights have honored Beacon Hill at Eastgate with certification as a Great Place to Work for the second year in a row. The certification process involved surveying 100% of employees from across Beacon Hill’s continuum of care and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do. 

“Our team is dedicated to providing the best care and service for our residents and families. As a large service organization, we hope to mirror that experience for our employees, by providing a rewarding and fulfilling place to work,” said April Schaab, Administrator and Operations Director of Beacon Hill at Eastgate.

“We applaud Beacon Hill at Eastgate for seeking certification and publicly sharing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care partner Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”
