To be certified as a Great Place to Work, operators must survey all of their employees using a “trust index survey” including 60 questions. Providers earn Great Place to Work certification if at least 70% employees surveyed confirm that an employer is a great place to work. Once certified, operators automatically are included in Fortune’s ranking process. Fortune and Great Place to Work then take the employee certification data and run it through an algorithm that adjusts for factors such as company size and consistency of all employee experience. The adjusted scores of each operator are then ranked.

Winners commented on their successes, a few noting their repeat performances on the list.  

“Senior Helpers is extremely honored and grateful to be recognized for the fourth consecutive year by FORTUNE as a Best Workplace in Aging Services,” Senior Helpers CEO and co-founder Peter Ross said in a statement. “We believe that our caregivers, franchisees and staff are our greatest asset and one of our biggest competitive advantages. We are proud to be able to foster a workplace that creates opportunities for them to live a life that they can celebrate!”

This year is CompassCare’s fifth year on the list. 

“Our caregivers are the face of CompassCare to our clients, and we are committed to building and retaining a superior workforce so that we can deliver a better service to our clients,” leadership said. “Our employees are CompassCare’s greatest assets and we consider them the key to elevating the way in-home care is provided.”

The media outlet highlighted the top 65 workplaces in aging services based on its Great Place to Work survey. It broke down the list into home care, recognizing 15 firms; senior housing (large), honoring 25 companies; and senior housing (small and medium) noting 25 companies. For the 2022 list, more than 243,000 senior care employees were invited to survey across 4,220 locations.
