Dec 06, 2007

Vancouver, Canada, December 05, 2007 --( While companies across the province struggle to attract great employees, Nurse Next Door, BC's largest in-home senior care provider, was recognized as one of the province's top 10 employers by BCBusiness Magazine's annual Best Companies to Work For in BC award program. Ranking in the sixth spot, Nurse Next Door became the only healthcare organization to make the list.

"What is incredible is being the only healthcare organization to make the top ten," said Nurse Next Door co-founder, Ken Sim. "Organizations within our industry often find themselves facing labour troubles so we made it a focus to break that trend and become a great employer."

"We are thrilled to be recognized for our hard work in attracting top talent," added fellow co-founder, John DeHart. "Getting the right people who are passionate about what we do has been one of the keys to our success."

Despite BC's unemployment rate at only 4.4%, among the lowest in the country, Nurse Next Door has been able to both attract and retain talent through innovative methods. A great company culture, open book financials, profit sharing, employee stock options and flexible schedules have all contributed to the company's success.

Most recently, Nurse Next Door developed The Mommy Shift Program, helping stay-at-home moms participate in meaningful, part-time work, while their kids are at school. The unique new program has received national media attention and has opened up an entirely new labour pool for the company.

With franchise locations throughout BC, Nurse Next Door is set to expand across the country, bringing its award-winning human resource practices to communities nation-wide.

"We want to bring our recipe for success to communities across the country as we continue to select the top franchise partners to deliver great homecare services to their local seniors," concluded DeHart.
