One of the best places to work
Of course, none of this — great culture, caring and happy employees, revolutionary service, pink cars — would mean a thing if Nurse Next Door didn’t work as a business. Thankfully, it doesn’t just work. It thrives.
It starts with an essential for any business: demand. Health care is not just an economic phenomenon — it’s one of humanity’s cornerstone issues for this century, especially in the West as the Baby Boomers hit retirement age. The acute need for home medical care and companionship will persist for at least a generation.
Many other savvy businesspeople realize this as well, and home health care companies are sprouting like toadstools. So how does Nurse Next Door set itself apart from the pack? Through our commitment to surpassing customer expectations, finding better ways to do everything and making our clients, partners and employees happy.
Our commitment already has paid off. Trade publications consistently rank Nurse Next Door on their lists of the top business cultures and best places to work:
Franchise Business Review placed us 5th on their list of North America’s 50 best mid-sized franchise systems.
We ranked ninth on the annual list of Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada.
BC Business magazine named us a top 10 employer four of the past five years.
Waterstone Human Capital named us Canada’s most admired emerging corporate culture.
Resuscitating the industry
In a little more than a decade, we’ve grown from two guys and six caregivers working out of a Starbucks to a booming business that’s resuscitating the home health care industry with fresh energy and ideas. We’re up to more than 80 franchise locations, including 30 locations in the United States.
If the opportunity was great in Canada, it’s massive south of the border — and no one is positioned to disrupt the American home health care industry like Nurse Next Door.
