I Feel Lucky to Work Here!
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 22 March 2016
I have been part of the Elliott Community since 2008 and have to say that it is genuinely a terrific place to work. Everyday I am motivated to come to work, my co-workers and residents have become true friends and we all take pride in what we achieve together to create the best possible care and home for the residents.
The management team is approachable and friendly. There is an open door atmosphere and I feel comfortable talking to any of the managers if I have a problem - they are fair and they take the time to listen. I always feel like I matter.
Even though I haven't worked anywhere else in more than eight years, I still recognize what a great place this is and know that I'm fortunate to be part of a 'one of a kind' organization.
The pension is outstanding and one of the best in Canada (OMERs). The benefit plan is also excellent and fairly affordable, the Elliott shares the cost of the plan. The wages are fair, especially for a not-for-profit charity and they are reviewed each year.
If there are problems, management will deal with it quickly and they show genuine interest in me and my future. I feel very lucky to be part of such a great organization.
The Elliott may have high expectations but that goes hand-in-hand with the high standards of care. I personally love knowing that I am part of such a meaningful, well run operation, where my top notch skills are recognized and valued.
Work culture, supportive work environment, good managers
