Home Instead Senior Care Featured on Forbes’ 2017 Best Employers ListOMAHA, Neb. – May 9, 2017 – Forbes' third annual "America's Best Employers" list has named Home Instead Senior Care one of its best employers for 2017. The list was generated using anonymous feedback from employees at the nation's top employers.

Companies on the Best Employers' list range across 25 different industry sectors – from government services to retail to healthcare. While the 2017 list featured a variety of healthcare companies, Home Instead is the only provider of home care services for seniors.

"We are delighted to be recognized as one of the nation's best employers," said Jeff Huber, president and CEO of Home Instead, Inc. "For more than twenty years, our goal has been to provide excellent care to our senior clients. In order to reach that goal, we are relentlessly focused on developing innovative ways to promote advancement and leadership opportunities for our franchise owners and their teams. That focus allows us to create an environment where the employees and clients can thrive."

Home Instead has more than 150 employees at its corporate headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, and franchisees employ more than 65,000 professional CAREGiversSM. CAREGivers, provide basic support services that allow seniors to live safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible – from companionship and personal care to specialized Alzheimer's care. CAREGivers provide more than 60 million hours of care annually across more than 1,000 independently owned and operated franchises throughout the United States and 11 other countries.

To compile the annual list, Forbes conducts an independent survey from a sample of 30,000 full- and part-time American employees working for large or midsize companies. Participants were asked 35 questions about work-related topics, including whether employees would recommend their employer – with additional weight given to this particular question.
