Posted on April 14, 2020 By

Jonathan Herman, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, said, “Amid all of the negative headlines about COVID-19, I am excited to share some positive news. Preferred/Acelleron was named to Great Place to Work (GPTW) and Fortune’s “Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma List” in 2020!”

Compared to 59 percent of employees at a typical U.S.-based health care company, 89 percent of Preferred’s 200 employees reported that Preferred, with headquarters in Eatontown, New Jersey, is great place to work.

Determining a Great Place to Work® is based on employees’ assessments of the pride they take in their jobs, the camaraderie they experience with coworkers, and the trust they feel toward Preferred’s leaders.

Among many positive comments from employees in 16 sites in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, 98 percent said that “people celebrate special events around here”; 97 percent felt “people here are given a lot of responsibility”; 97 percent said, “When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride”; 97 percent felt welcomed when they joined Preferred; and 95 percent were happy to be able to take time off from work when necessary.

Herman said, “I am so happy and proud that our organization was certified a Great Place to Work®. This honor is a testament to what we’re building at Preferred/Acelleron and the empathetic culture that we’re cultivating, which continues to strengthen and gain wide recognition in our ever-expanding geographic footprint.”

Preferred is always looking for candidates who have contributed to society in meaningful ways, including putting more back into their communities than they take out. For example, Preferred looks for employees who have volunteered at local charities, nonprofits, or other community-based organizations.
