During an evening dedicated to honoring the achievements of employees, The Palace Group, South Florida’s largest privately owned company specializing in senior housing development, management, operations and care, recognized 12 of its managers as “Managers of the Year”.
Now in its 25th year, “Manager of Year” is the company’s prestigious award celebrating excellence in budget performance, resident and family satisfaction, personal development and improvement, attitude, loyalty, spirit of volunteerism, professionalism and includes peer evaluation.
“The awards are a great source of inspiration for our employees. The ‘Manager of the Year’ distinction is reserved for our managers who have excelled and embraced The Palace’s philosophy and mission. It is based solely on performance, so the number of winners varies each year,” explained Helen Shaham, company president.
“Each year, it is especially meaningful to see our employees win these awards. Uniquely, some managers are longtime employees while others are more recent hires. This year’s awards were especially significant as they reflected the team’s contributions during and following Hurricane Irma. A crisis situation like the hurricane shows who we are and our true resolve to care for our residents and employees,” Shaham added.
The recipients are selected from across The Palace’s continuum of care which includes independent living at The Palace Suites and Palace Coral Gables; assisted living and memory care at The Palace Royale and Renaissance and Palace Gardens in Homestead, skilled nursing and habitation at The Palace Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Homestead Manor, The Palace at Home: a Medicare Certified Home Health Agency and Care One Pharmacy.
Winners will be rewarded with an all-expense-paid team-building trip to The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia in May.
