The Silver Employer of Choice designation runs through the end of 2019. This acknowledges a strong commitment to high quality recruiting and retention standards.

“With unemployment low, we work diligently to attract and retain top tier staff members,” explains Judy Budi, Vice President for Residential Care at Bethany Village. “Being recognized as a Silver level Employer of Choice means we are living our own values of Faithful Caring while providing a meaningful work environment for our employees.”
