What is the current company culture like?
When asked what we should tell people about Bethany, residents responded, “tell them about your employees.” We try to hire people who have excellent skills but also those who have a positive, “team” attitude. Because we are open 24 hours every day, the employees on each shift, among various departments, and between the shifts need to work together to make sure our residents are receiving the award-winning care the deserve and expect. We have high expectations of our employees and that shows in the high-quality care we are able to offer. We open our doors to provide opportunities for the community to experience the unique culture of Bethany – from hosting seminars by AARP and Sanford, to conducting workshops of our own, to having neighborhood associations, card groups and service clubs meet at Bethany. We also are an active (and generous) participant in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s and contribute to HERO, ARD, Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, and other organizations.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to restrict traffic in the Bethany buildings and, thus, curtailed programs and activities for our residents and the public.
What skills, education, and experiences does your ideal candidate(s) have?
We look for employees that can exhibit excellent customer service. Every job at Bethany is directly tied to resident/patient care.
How would you describe the company leadership/team management? The Bethany Management Team is comprised of six individuals who have combined experience at Bethany of more than 125 years. The Management Team meets regularly to look at issues, challenges and opportunities that affect all of Bethany’s operations. We have an 11-member Board of Trustees who oversee Bethany’s operations, provide visioning and approve our budget. At least half of our Trustees are members of our 37 sponsoring church congregations and bring expertise in healthcare, finance, employment, law, marketing, property management and other specialties. Both groups are forward-thinking and anticipate changes in the market long before action is needed.
Where do you see the company/organization in the upcoming years? The senior population in the region is expected to grow (one estimate is a 34% increase in the next five years) and Bethany is poised to continue to expand programs and services to meet the needs of the growing population and the evolving demands and expectations of those who will look to Bethany for care and housing. Among the challenges that accompany growth is the need for an eager, qualified workforce. What do you feel candidates need to know about the company before applying? Bethany is recognized as a leader in the community. Not just for long-term care, but as an employee-friendly business.
