Compassionate, Caring, and Innovative: What HCD Employees Really Think About Working at HCD 

Post Reviewed By Expert

This post was reviewed by our Director of Clinical Excellence and Oversight.

“I love my job because I love what Home Care Delivered stands for. Customers are living better lives due to our service and the care that we have for the patients and each other.”

 

“The employees are genuine and collaborative. Everyone cares about doing a good job and taking care of our customers.”

 

“Home Care Delivered has the absolute best culture I’ve ever experienced. Every teammate and customer is truly cared about. We all take what we do both personally and seriously to ensure the best level of care is provided to one another and our customers. We are truly one team!”

The responses above were collected by a neutral 3rd party company, Energage, as part of their Top Workplaces competition. This annual survey of companies throughout the United States uses research-based statements that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks. The companies that score the highest on the survey are identified as a Top Workplace in one of 60 different markets throughout the United States.

More than 98% of HCD employees voluntarily took part in the Top Workplaces survey. They anonymously answered questions about HCD’s culture and leaders, their managers, and the jobs they perform every day.

Why Employee Opinions Matter

Not every company takes the time to ask their employees about the good, bad, and ugly of their daily work experience. But to the HCD leadership team, these types of questions are essential.

Why?

Because Home Care Delivered has always been a company that believes that the first step in taking great care of your customer is to take great care of your employees. And sure enough, when the results of the Top Workplaces survey came in, the HCD team had many reasons to celebrate!

2022 Top Workplace

First, Home Care Delivered earned regional recognition from the Richmond Times-Dispatch as a Top Workplace for 2022. This award means that HCD is designated as one of the best places to work in the Richmond, Virginia region. Top Workplace rankings are based entirely on employee feedback and companies with the highest overall average scores (compared to other like-sized companies in their region) qualify as Top Workplaces.

What sets a company apart as a Top Workplace? According to Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage, the answer has to do with the company’s culture. “Top Workplaces put the employee at the center of things and focus on creating the right culture to unleash potential and inspire performance,” he said.

HCD’s employees agreed. “I get to work remotely. I have wonderful coworkers. I feel like what I do makes a difference,” one employee noted. “I am allowed to do what I do best and help patients at the same time. It allows me to make the most of my skills and enhance and help them grow along with helping people,” said another.

Home Care Delivered’s culture and values were consistently cited by employees as a main reason they enjoy working at HCD. In fact, the words that HCD uses to describe the company’s culture and values were often cited by employees as a reason they love working for HCD.

These Five Ideas Encapsulate HCD’s Culture and Values:

Inspire: We are a high performing team, united by a common purpose.

Innovate: We strive to relentlessly collaborate and improve.

Be Compassionate: We act in a way that prioritizes being kind, caring and respectful.

Show Gratitude: We honor our teammates, partners, and customers.

Act Boldly: We dream big and move with courage.

And the word cloud below shows responses to the survey question that asked, “What three words best describe the culture at Home Care Delivered?” The words in this word cloud are sized by how much more frequently they were cited at Home Care Delivered compared to other similar organizations.

HCD’s Trusted Leader

 In addition to the above Culture Badges, HCD earned one more honor by scoring in the top 5% of all companies for Trusted Leader. This award signifies that HCD employees have confidence in the leaders of HCD. HCD’s CEO Gordy Fox, who founded the company more than 25 years ago, began as a caregiver to his ailing grandmother and father. From the company’s earliest days, Gordy has made it a priority to provide the best customer care in the industry. Employees have always been instructed to serve each customer as they would their own grandparent. This focus on caring has been extended within the team and employees have taken notice. “The company cares about me as a person and not just an employee,” said one employee in the survey.

How to Find Your Ostomate Community

If you live with an ostomy, or care for someone who does, it’s tempting to think that you’re the only one dealing with the issues associated with being an ostomate. The truth is that as many as 1 in 500 Americans lives with an ostomy and a vibrant community has grown up to provide support for those dealing with the medical issues, work and school concerns, and the emotional roller coaster that can accompany this life-changing procedure.

9 Things to Know About Your Glucometer

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you may have checked your blood sugar (glucose) thousands of times. Or, if you are new to the diabetes community, this whole fingerstick thing might still be a little strange. Either way, we think you’ll benefit from this update on best practices for using a traditional glucose meter (glucometer), plus tips for making monitoring as easy and effective as possible. An alternative to the glucometer for those diagnosed with diabetes is a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM), a wearable device that tracks your glucose 24/7 mostly without fingersticks.

Everything You Need to Know About Catheter-Associated UTIs

For most of us, the ability to easily go into a bathroom and empty our bladders is one of those basic functions that is easy to take for granted. But when you have a urological condition that makes urinating difficult or impossible, life becomes a little more complicated. Luckily, help is available in the form of a urinary catheter, a tube inserted in the bladder that allows the urine to be diverted into a drainage bag that is regularly emptied.

Living With Blood Thinners

Do you take a blood thinner? Blood thinners are lifesaving drugs that assist our bodies in keeping our blood flowing smoothly. First discovered about 100 years ago, blood thinners, also known as anticoagulants, are used by two to three million Americans. While they do not actually make the blood “thinner” or break up existing blood clots, blood thinners do stop blood clots from growing larger and prevent new ones from developing.
