When considering a new career, it is important to look for employers who not only offer good wages and benefits packages, but also prioritize their employees’ overall health and well-being. Employers that offer emotional support programs provide a more positive work environment for their staff as well as resources that help employees when they are not at work. Two programs in particular that illustrate that a company cares about the well-being of its team members are chaplain services and an Employee Assistance Fund, both of which are offered at American Senior Communities in addition to great benefits and perks.
Employee Assistance Fund
ASC is proud to offer the Share to Care Employee Assistance Fund. The Share to Care Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization funded by donations. The fund was developed to provide financial assistance and temporary relief for employees and/or their families encountering sudden financial hardship due to unexpected life events such as a natural disaster, major illness, death of a family member as well as non-work-related accidents.
Chaplains are equipped to address the spiritual, emotional, and relational components of whole health and wellness. American Senior Communities has retained the services of Work Force Chaplains. This non-denominational, optional service is offered at NO COST to employees of ASC and to household family members of employees. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide assistance during real-life issues employees face both at work and at home.
When looking at potential employers, it is important to research what additional support programs they offer to their employees —not just wages and benefits packages. To learn more about career opportunities as ASC, visit ASCCare.com/Careers.
