Geneva Promotes Values-Based Service And Work Progression

Twelve outstanding employees who demonstrated the company values in their everyday work have been recognised at Geneva Healthcare’s annual Pillar Awards. Care, Passion, Aspiration, Leadership and Health are Geneva’s company values and this year’s winners displayed those in everything they do for the organisation.

“We are a healthcare service provider and rely on our Staff to support the people we provide care for. All of our Staff have been our champions out there in our communities making it possible for Geneva to enable our Clients to enjoy life, live independently and achieve their goals. We really appreciate our employees’ hard work, commitment and valuable contribution to our company’s success. Geneva have done a lot of great things in our communities, not because one person did really well, or because of one or two managers; we’ve done it as a team of great people,” says Veronica Manion, Geneva Healthcare Chief Executive.

Geneva also recognised employees who reached the significant 10 year service milestone in their career at Geneva. “We offer real career progression opportunities as well as the chance to work in different facets of healthcare. One of our ‘Ten Yearlings’, Mark Radich, started off as a Care Coordinator and has worked in other business units such as Temp Staffing before eventually ending up leading Geneva’s Training division. These ‘10 Yearlings’ prove that regardless of where you start in Geneva, with perseverance and dedication, employees can have a rewarding role at Geneva,” she adds.
