Sharing is caring

Sharing is Caring! 

 

There are an awful lot of things that we shouldn't share these days, but United Helpers Facebook posts and job ads are definitely things you should pass along!

 

We all know that the recruitment of qualified staff is critical to maintain a high-level quality of care. A successful recruitment and retention campaign can mean the difference between getting that time off you need and the dreaded weekend mandates. It's a challenge that needs to be addressed at many levels. So, how can you help?

Employee Recognition Reimagined

 

Employee Recognition 2020 Reimagined

 

United Helpers' annual Employee Recognition celebration is one of the most highly anticipated and attended events that UH sponsors. In a year where everything from bowling tournament to simple potluck luncheons have been canceled, the Human Resources team is proud to announce that this year's Employee Recognition activities will go on! 

We don't want to spoil all of the fun, of course, there are a few new twists planned for this year's celebration, but we will say that the show will go on! 

Avoid the ER

 

Avoid the ER, There's a Better Way. 

 

United Helpers is partnered with United Concierge Medicine (UCM), providing UH employees access to Emergency Medicine trained providers 24/7, 365-days-a-year. When illnesses like seasonal allergies or minor injury strikes you or your family, don't forget this very important benefit!
