Non-profit Aging Services organization honored for second consecutive year

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, Covia, an Aging Services non-profit

organization headquartered in Walnut Creek, California, has been certified a Great Place to Work.

Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluates an organizational culture brief as well as more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. These elements include pride in the organization's community impact, employees' belief that their work makes a difference, and a sense of respect, fairness, credibility, and camaraderie. Together, these items are called the Trust Index.

The certification process at Covia considered almost 700 employee surveys from across all of Covia's California communities and locations. To be certified, an organization needs a participation rate of over 50%, and a Trust Index score of 75% or greater. Overall, 66% of Covia's employees participated in the survey with a Trust Index score of 77%.

Being certified makes Covia eligible to be considered for the Fortune Great Places to Work list, including Great Places to Work in Aging Services. Last year, Covia ranked 28th on the list. The 2019 results will be published late this summer.

Survey results will be used to create action items to improve the employee experience. After reviewing the results, Covia will determine an action item that will be applied to the organization overall, and each community will also develop an action item that is specific for that location.

"The Great Place to Work certification is a testament both to the quality of our workplaces and of our employees," says Prab Brinton, Vice President of Human Resources. "We want to take this moment to celebrate this achievement as we strive to become the best workplace we can."

Established in 1965, Covia promotes positive aging by cultivating healthy and engaged communities with a continuum of innovative services that actively support intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. For more information on Covia, please visit covia.org.
