A Culture of Caring
Pines of Sarasota is renowned for its compassionate care. That culture of caring begins with the over 400 culturally diverse people who look after our residents, who think of them and treat them as members of their own family. From our CEO to our CNAs, we respect the fact that this is their home and we believe in doing whatever we can to make them happy, to respect them, to honor their dignity and to give their lives meaning.
Caring for Our Colleagues
We’re proud of our colleagues and of Pines of Sarasota’s extraordinarily low turnover rate, a rate unparalleled in the healthcare field. People stay with us because they find the work they do rewarding, their workload reasonable, and the pay and benefits we offer competitive.
We work hard to keep our staff because that allows for close relationships to develop between them and those for whom they care. It also means that we know and care about one another.
A Full Complement of Benefits
Among the more important benefits Pines of Sarasota provides is an on-going commitment to education, providing tuition for college and through department budgets the allocation of funds for specific training and technique certification, as well as conference attendance.
Staff also enjoys a full complement of healthcare options, including dental, vision, medical coverage, disability, and Aflac. We offer a 401 (k) program and offer discounts at our thrift stores. Staff can make purchases through convenient payroll deduction. We also have on-site newborn and childcare services for staff.
We make a point of acknowledging a job well done with letters of commendation and gift cards. We hold frequent celebrations that help our colleagues bond and that foster mutual respect, which means more cooperation between colleagues. That translates into more coordinated care for our residents.
Pines of Sarasota is always willing to consider individuals for positions who are passionate about the work they do, inspired by our mission, and are dedicated to service to others.
