New Hampton, NH (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
In a culture where, according to the latest Gallup poll, more than half of U.S. workers feel a lack of engagement with their jobs, Live Free Home Health Care has cracked the code for how to keep employees engaged in their work: Put women in leadership roles. The company was recently named one of New Hampshire’s top women-led businesses by Business NH Magazine. Live Free Home Health Care employs women in four top management roles at their thriving home health and senior care agency.
Gallup characterizes engaged employees as ones who are involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work. Many of the traits needed to engage employees successfully come naturally to women, who studies show, excel at showing empathy, communicating regularly, and inspiring and motivating their staff.
“I think women-led businesses are different because women bring a deep commitment to reaching out to people in their roles as managers. At Live Free, we all work together to find solutions to problems, and we support a culture of building one another up,” says Jennifer Harvey, RN, CEO of Live Free Home Health Care, “Without strong women leaders in my organization, my success would not be possible.”
Christine Brewer, Lead Scheduler for Live Free Home Health Care, agrees wholeheartedly and says, “I have found that women generally take their work a step further by treating those around them with compassion, patience, and understanding. This has a profound effect on employees, making them feel more appreciated.”
“What this translates to for our customers is better care delivered by employees who are well-cared for by the company that employs them. By keeping relationships in mind, we form strong ties to our employees and the community we serve,” adds Harvey.
This is not Live Free Home Health Care’s first award from Business NH Magazine. In 2013, the company was named one of New Hampshire’s top family businesses by the same publication. Tammy Miller, Director of Care Management for Live Free Home Health Care, attributes this most recent honor to a strong commitment by Live Free Home Health Care’s leadership to the company’s values, mission, and vision. Miller adds, “We are honored to be named among the top women-led businesses in our state, and everyone at the company, whether they are a woman or a man, is part of our success story.”
