Chicago, IL – Unity Hospice, a leader in hospice and palliative care for over 20 years, recently announced that it has
been presented with a 2015 Top Workplaces award by the Chicago Tribune. This award publicly recognizes the most dynamic and supportive local companies to work for in the area. Unity Hospice’s Chicagoland offices were recognized with this honor. These offices include its Chicago, Ill.; Skokie, Ill. and Merrillville, Ind. locations, which serve patients throughout the
Chicago area and Northwest Indiana.
Unity Hospice ranked #12 and received the highest rankings in employee appreciation in the small business category. Additionally, Unity Hospice was the only hospice company type that was recognized as a 2015 top workplace.
“We are proud to stand among the top 100 workplaces in the Chicago area, especially since the results were based solely on employee feedback. It is a true honor,” stated Michael Klein, President and CEO of Unity Hospice. “There are two groups of people we serve in this company – our patients including their loved ones, and our employees. It is important for us to provide an environment that employees are proud to be a part of and look forward to coming to every day.”
Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including employee appreciation, career development, work/life balance, pay and benefits.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
