LEMONT, IL – Franciscan Ministries announced that it will be honoring associates with 15-50 years of service at the Ministry with a Years of Service celebration, including a recognition luncheon and event. 

“The greatest testament to our culture of Living Joyfully is the longevity of our associates,” stated President and CEO of Franciscan Ministries, Regina Umanskiy. She went on, “this inaugural celebration to recognize the milestone anniversaries of 15 – 50 years of service – comprises 140 of our associates. We’re so grateful for their dedication and service, as well as their commitment to the Ministry and our residents.”

Recently, Franciscan Communities, a subsidiary of Franciscan Ministries, was awarded the certification as a Great Place to Work from Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights. The certification process involved surveying 100% of associates from across Franciscan’s locations and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.

While years of service have been recognized at the community level, it has never been recognized systemwide. This is part of our ongoing initiative to strengthen our employer brand, focusing on associate culture, ongoing educational and career development, diversity and inclusion and enhanced benefits and wellbeing initiatives and programs,” Umanskiy said, expressing her deep commitment to ensuring a strong Ministry culture.
