INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- The Visiting Nurse Association of the Treasure Coast was selected as one of Indian River County's 2012 best places to work by Workforce Solutions for the fourth consecutive year.
The VNA's educational programs, benefits and associate wellness initiatives were cited as contributing factors in being selected for this honor.
"The VNA cares for those that care for others. Our higher associate satisfaction leads to higher patient satisfaction, which is the core of our business. I am proud of our associates for making the VNA a great place to work," said Joyce Baldrica, VNA's president and CEO.
The VNA and each participating company was required to complete a 40-question survey that allowed their employment practices to be analyzed by the consulting firm Personnel Dynamics Consulting in Fort Pierce.
The data was measured on such parameters as: turnover, growth, employee training and development and promotion rates; employee evaluations and feedback; percentage of employee injuries; diversity of management; benefits offered and average increase in pay.
The Best Places to Work is a national program that was developed to provide a confidential forum for local employers to participate in evaluations of various local workplace best practices and programs. It provides an opportunity for employers to compare themselves to others of a similar size and serves as a valuable tool for business and human resource planning.
