Companies that Care Day UMH

Why should you care about March 21st?  Because yesterday was “Companies that Care Day”; a day which according to Companies that Care, an organization that raises awareness for the appreciation and fair, equal treatment of employees at every company "encourages employers to highlight and expand their employee and community initiatives, and recognize the people who make their companies successful."

At United Methodist Homes we don’t just celebrate our employees once a year; we are always appreciative of the efforts put forth into the care of our residents and for the staff who live our mission of relationship-centered care.

According to Companies That Care, companies that have exemplary work environments...

  1. Sustain a work environment founded on dignity and respect for all employees
  2. Make employees feel their jobs are important
  3. Cultivate the full potential of all employees
  4. Encourage individual pursuit of work/life balance
  5. Enable the well-being of individuals and their families through compensation, benefits, policies and practices
  6. Develop great leaders, at all levels, who excel at managing people as well as results
  7. Appreciate and recognize the contributions of people who work there
  8. Establish and communicate standards for ethical behavior and integrity
  9. Get involved in community endeavors and/or public policy
  10. Consider the human toll when making business decisions

At UMH, we don’t take for granted that every day our employees come to work with a positive attitude and sunny disposition to give our residents the care they deserve. Our Values in Action awards have been given to employees who exhibit respect, spirituality, excellence, collaboration, and stewardship.

About Elizabeth Bemis

In 1998, I drove past an assisted living community construction site, learned that it was part of United Methodist Homes and realized the next stop on my professional journey was to work for a mission driven organization. Soon after, I joined the team as Executive Director of our Middlewoods of Farmington community and later served as Regional Manager for the Middlewoods properties before accepting my current role as Vice President of Marketing, Promotions, and Assisted Living Operations. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, walking, and love working alongside our staff, residents, and families to build strong communities that reflect the mission, vision, and values of United Methodist Homes.
