 AHCA/NCAL, Parkinson Receive Top Honors

For the fifth year in a row, the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) has been named one of The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces. New this year is AHCA President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Parkinson also being singled out as Top CEO in the small-employer category for 2019.

“This is a tremendous honor,” says Parkinson. “It is rewarding to know that not only is the work you do helping people, but the staff are truly passionate about making a difference. That passion shows through the culture we’ve built and in both of these special recognitions.”

AHCA/NCAL’s selection as a Top Workplace is based on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by employee research and consulting firm Energage. The survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, giving employees an opportunity to rate their workplace.
“Now in its sixth year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to reflect companies in the region that cultivate a connection with their workforce,” says Washington Post Top Workplaces Editor Dion Haynes. “It’s clear from the survey that these organizations share a commitment to providing support and an environment that makes employees feel valued and respected.”
A total of 341 organizations employing 105,538 workers in the Washington, D.C., area took the survey. Of those who received questionnaires, 57,184 responded. The survey gathered responses on 24 factors covering organizational health (alignment, effectiveness, management, and connection, for example) and other aspects such as employee engagement, pay, benefits, training, and leadership.  
“It is a pleasure to work alongside and lead this committed group of talented professionals every day,” he says.
 
Parkinson has been AHCA/NCAL president and CEO since 2011. He also served as the 45th governor of the state of Kansas. Prior to that, he and his wife, Stacy, were owners and operators of long term care facilities in Kansas and Missouri.
