You can probably find an Encompass Home Health office in or near your town, and if you do, you’ll also find a company that’s not afraid to brag on its employees. In fact, the Dallas office has turned its entry hall into its very own hall of fame, using an arrangement of custom wall plaques to display media coverage the company has garnered through the years.
Living The Mission Statement
Just above the Encompass collection of custom-framed newspaper and magazine articles is the phrase, “A Better Way to Care, A Better Place to Work.” That claim is borne out by an Inc. 5000 honor, and articles like the Houston Chronicle piece from November 2012 naming the local office Houston’s third best small employer. April Anthony, CEO of Encompass, said her home health care employees need benefits that work for them so they can give their full attention to fragile clients.
“They have to work hard every single day, so we give them lots of time off so they can be rejuvenated,” Anthony told the Chronicle, referring to the company’s generous four-week vacation package for each and every employee. Encompass also provides vehicles for its employees who travel the most, and employees are encouraged to develop a career path within the company, which practices internal promotion whenever possible. “The idea is to create an environment that fosters professional development and gives them access to new opportunities,” Anthony explained.
A Welcome Wall With A Lasting Message
Anyone who enters the lobby at Encompass Home Health’s central office in Dallas can read all about its successes. The wall features an arrangement of nearly a dozen custom wall plaques preserving company profiles, feature stories and top-employer rankings. The wall plaques and the stories they spotlight make it clear that Encompass is a company dedicated to building relationships with employees, clients and their families: a business plan that is built for growth and, like those custom wall plaques, will stand the test of time.
