Featured Employer: Ultimate Care
If you have a passion for taking care of others and making a positive impact in their lives, then joining the team at Ultimate Care might be the ideal next step in your career. A licensed home care service agency, Ultimate Care employs RNs, certified home health aides, and in-house staff to support thousands of clients across New York City’s five boroughs and Westchester County.
The ultimate workplace
Ultimate Care’s motto, Live Life to the Ultimate, doesn’t only apply to how the company treats its patients and clients — this is how it treats its entire network of both contract and in-house employees. For Director of Patient Services and Administrator, Carol Shafir, this philosophy is what sets Ultimate Care apart from other home care agencies.
“The job is the same everywhere you go, but the environment is what makes the difference,” she says. Which is why, for the past five years, she has made it her mission to create the ultimate workplace for her staff of more than 1,500.
Large agency with a small company feel
The goal is to make each individual feel like they are working for a much smaller company, where their voice is heard and their contributions are noticed. How Ultimate Care achieves this goal is by providing each employee 24/7 support and guidance whenever they need it. For example, there is a dedicated Home Health Aide Management staff devoted solely to addressing issues and concerns of home health aides.
Recognition and reward
As a fast-paced, constantly moving business, Carol and her team realize the importance of maintaining a happy, and motivational work culture. That’s why outstanding individual and team performance is regularly recognized and rewarded and a staff party is usually right around the corner — whether it’s to celebrate a holiday, birthday, or even an eclipse viewing!
Benefits and room for growth
Benefits and company perks vary for each position, and can range from token reward programs, where employees earn prizes like extra vacation days, event tickets, or free metrocards to wage parity benefits, which include life insurance, medical insurance, flexible spending accounts, and more.
For those seeking growth opportunities, Ultimate Care prides itself on promoting staff from within. There is also opportunity for home health aides in the field to move in-house.
Who should apply?
Ultimate Care is always seeking compassionate, punctual, and responsible individuals who are passionate about helping others and have experience in healthcare services. In particular, the company is most interested in growing its team of certified home health aides, LPN’s, PCA’s and RNs.
