Among an elite list of distinguished winners from across the U.S., Tabitha was recognized for its innovative LIVE to Succeed company culture with LeadingAge’s 2012 Excellence in the Workplace Award.
“We’re humbled and grateful to again be named among the nation’s best Elder care service providers,” said Christie Hinrichs, Tabitha president and CEO. “Outstanding care for Elders begins with outstanding compassion, commitment and training, and we work to enhance those qualities in our Tabitha team each and every day.”
LIVE to Succeed, born in 2006 and spearheaded by then-COO Hinrichs, has transformed the organization with four simple, employee-focused objectives:
- Love your job
- Invite optimism
- Vision success
- Embrace the mission
Through ongoing employee education, appreciation events and other incentives designed to make Tabitha a great place to work, the organization commits substantial time and financial resources to support its culture, an investment that has paid off in the form of significantly lower employee turnover than the industry average, excellent regulatory rankings and, most importantly, Tabitha’s consistently positive clinical outcomes and family satisfaction feedback.
A longtime regional leader in Elder care, Tabitha offers the state’s only complete continuum of services to support aging individuals at every stage of the journey. As just the latest in a growing list of industry recognition, Tabitha’s most recent award supports the measurable success of the organization’s Christian-based mission, innovative approach and definitive status as the answer for Elder care in southeast Nebraska.
As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
