April 10, 2017

On April 5, 2017, Presbyterian SeniorCare Network was awarded the PHRA Engaging Pittsburgh Award in the "transparency" category for our annual Passport Program

About the Passport Program: Annually, each employee develops three Passport goals for the year with the understanding that their personal commitment matters to our organization achieving goals on behalf of the residents served. In a very real and clear way, each employees Passport Goals contribute to the achievement of our strategic plan goals and our ongoing success and sustainability.

In 2017, our Passport theme is "United at the Heart," which offers a meaningful and "heartwarming" way to help team members connect to purpose and to reach their goals. To help bring the theme to life, we have a Passport Team made up of several employees from across our Network. The team helps to plan an event that brings everyone together to celebrate their goals. The celebration not only encourages the completion of the current year's goals, but also celebrates achieving the previous year's goals.

At the awards ceremony, members of our Passport Team accept the award.

About the PHRA Awards: For over a decade the Pittsburgh Human Resources Association's (PHRA) Engaging Pittsburgh: Innovative People Practices has recognized employees and employers from across the region who have demonstrated creativity in designing business practices that have significantly contributed towards organizational and employee achievements.
