The compassio GmbH & Co. KG has been awarded the seal „Attractive Employer Nursing Home Sector 2019“ by Olav Sehlbach Consultants in cooperation with the Vincentz Network. This subsidiary of the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group participated in the survey with 30 senior citizens’ residences. Six facilities received an award, based on above-average results.

The questionnaire contains a total of 35 questions on the topics of quality of working conditions, leadership by managers, public image and profile in comparison to the competition. It was developed by the industry, personnel and market research experts and optimized through scientific test procedures. The employee survey was conducted anonymously.

compassio was able to attract the attention of prospective employees especially regarding the quality of working conditions and the public image. Above-average ratings were achieved in these topic areas. The results of the employee survey are presented in a detailed report for each facility. Recommendations for action can be derived directly from the strengths and weaknesses. These are examined and implemented by project groups at the facility level.

„The industry award „Attractive Employer Nursing Home Sector“ confirms our role as a leading employer. A relationship based on trust and cooperation in all areas of the company, open communication, extensive opportunities for continuing education and training as well as a wide range of employee benefits to create an excellent work-life balance are important to us and ensure a positive work climate,“ says Michael Müller, COO of the SCHÖNES Leben Group. „By surveying our employees, we know where we are particularly good and where we have potential for improvement. Our managers have also become more aware of where we stand in comparison to other companies. We are a modern, innovative company and are constantly striving to improve in order to retain our employees and attract new ones.“
