Windward Life Care Wins The San Diego Union-Tribune's Top Workplaces Award For 2019

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Windward Life Care is proud to announce it has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 distinction by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The honor is based on anonymous employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC, that measures multiple aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. The award comes as Windward Life Care launches a subsidiary company, Windward Home Health, and confirms that the company's work culture is second to none in the aging services industry.

"We feel deeply honored by this recognition reflecting our diverse staff's actual impressions of their work environment," said Susan Valoff, LCSW, C-ASWCM, Vice President of Windward Life Care. "At Windward, we strive to make each employee feel valued and appreciated for who they are and their unique contributions to our team. Happier and more engaged staff stay in their jobs longer, and our clients ultimately benefit from this consistency and quality in their care."

As a Windward employee testimonial attests, "Windward Life Care appreciates their employees and it shows. This has been by far the best place of employment of the agencies I have worked for."

"The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration," said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. "Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results."

Locally owned and operated, Windward Life Care is celebrating its 15-year anniversary. Employing over 150 office and caregiving staff, it has served more than 2,000 older and disabled adults since opening its doors in 2004.
