Carriage Court Senior Living Recognizes Labor Day by Appreciating Employees

Category: Senior Living

Author: Monica Coffelt, Business Office Director

Labor Day is often considered to be the unofficial “end of summer” holiday but is actually an effort to recognize American workers. It was first celebrated in New York City in 1882 and signed into law as a legal holiday by President Grover Cleveland in 1894.  Carriage Court Senior Living will be recognizing this 140th year anniversary of Labor Day by proclaiming appreciation to our employees.

As a community, we decided 2022 would be “The Year of the Employee,” and thus focused our business plans on ways to celebrate those individuals who make Carriage Court Senior Living what it is and allow us to do what we do. We recognize that healthcare and caregiving is a difficult profession at the best of times but adding COVID-19 to the mix amplified the struggle.

And yet, in the face of extreme uncertainty and never seen circumstances, our employees adapted to the constantly changing CDC guidelines, routine testing, personal protective equipment requirements, visitor restrictions, and so much more on a monthly, weekly, or sometimes even daily basis. Throughout it all, our teams remained committed to providing our residents with the best quality of care regardless of what protocols were in place. It was the tenacity of those individuals, their dedication despite the uncertainty, that allowed us to remain #ArrowStrong.

As the Business Office Director, one way I show appreciation to our amazing teams is through a weekly campaign of creative follow ups (CFUs). A CFU is simply a way to show gratitude to an individual or team of employees for the work they do. This past year, my favorite was when we celebrated our hard-working cooks. This was my favorite CFU because our residents joined in to show the love, really giving our cooks some true appreciation for their hard work and delicious food. Knowing that your efforts are being seen that you as a person are seen, increases loyalty, productivity levels, and even motivation.

To conclude, in honor of Labor Day, September 5th, 2022, Carriage Court Senior Living wants to thank our employees, and we sincerely hope each of them can feel it. Without our teams, we wouldn’t be Arrow Strong.
