Encompass Home Health of Colorado

www.ehhi.com

Location: Colorado Springs

Rank: 10 in the medium company category

The culture: Visibility and accessibility to the executive leadership team; ongoing length of service awards and ceremonies held at the local level; well-defined and proactively promoted mission statement and activities to support.

Perks: Encompass Development Center provides training and education at the office, while an Encompass Scholarship Program and the Young Scholars Program allow for continued education. Encompass Cares is a nonprofit funded mostly by employees to support mission trips and community activities. Finally, company cars allow employees to travel in style.

Giving back: An Annual Day of Giving in September, in which employees make contributions to Encompass Cares, builds funds to sponsor mission trips and grant requests from community members.

The inside scoop: “Our clinical caregivers see patients every day of the week regardless of the weather conditions,” a team member shared. “When there are snow and ice storms in Colorado, our teams ban together to ensure that we see patients in order to provide the necessary treatments and care. The employees will partner up in vehicles in order to be safe, plus further divide up territories so that employees can drive the shortest distance possible to see the patients with important medical needs. This was the case the last two winters in particular in Colorado.”
