Employer of Choice

Employer of Choice 

 “Becoming an employer of choice isn’t easy. It means taking an honest look at your current workforce and what you want it to become. It means acknowledging some difficult truths and making internal changes.”  ~Jody Ordioni, 2013


Employer of ChoiceLeadingAge Ohio is pleased to offer the opportunity for its members to earn an Employer of Choice designation.  This tool, built over the course of a year’s work of a committee of human resources experts, offers members the opportunity to stand out in their communities–through the practices described below, to serve clients/residents and employees with excellence and to separate their organizations from competitors in the marketplace. We encourage all members to work toward this designation.  

The LeadingAge Ohio Employer of Choice initiative:

  • Establishes the operational standards for strengthening workforce practices among aging services employers
  • Creates criteria/thresholds by which to evaluate the standards
  • Provides a public recognition of this excellence so that residents, clients/customers, prospective employees, payors and other stakeholders can be aware 

Through this instrument, LeadingAge Ohio members demonstrate that they strive not just to be residences/providers of choice, but they seek to be employers of choice as well.  They acknowledge the importance of treating their employees – those that serve their residents/clients – with the same care they wish these employees to provide. 

Employer of Choice Recognition

Employer of Choice recipient organizations will be recognized during the Workforce Reception Tuesday, August 28 from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m.
