Maplewood Named a Winner of the Rochester 2018 Top Workplaces Award

The Maplewood is proud to announce that for the third year in a row, we’ve been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. This confirms what The Maplewood already knows; we value our amazing staff and appreciate all they do to deliver the best quality care to our residents.

The Top Workplace list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. When asked what they value most about working at The Maplewood, our staff most often spoke of teamwork, support of co-workers and their special relationships with our residents and families.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

“It is a humbling accomplishment when teammates rate the company where they work highly,” says Greg Chambery, Maplewood Administrator. “No company or job is ever perfect. Smart employers spend time promoting a supportive environment where each member of the staff knows what is expected of them and is recognized for their contributions. As more attention is paid to this activity, it can make a big difference in levels of satisfaction with the company. At Maplewood we make this a high priority every day and we see the benefits of following this path. I am proud that our Maplewood staff has once again helped our facility achieve a place on the D&C Best Places to Work List for 2018. This is a well-deserved designation that can only be accomplished by teamwork and a unique sense of attention to what’s important each day. I would like to thank one and all for making this happen.”
