Why is Parker so well regarded by its employees?

Parker works hard to be 'best in class' in the field of aging services. One of the ways we strive to be the example, for others to follow, is in how we treat our employees.

Parker Employees

Parker works hard to be an employer of choice - the type of company you can take pride in and trust to offer a fair, enlightened, and compassionate workplace, which provides ample opportunities for professional development and job growth.

We enjoy one of the highest employee retention rate, which far exceeds industry standards, and reward our employees with a supportive environment, an excellent benefits package and competitive compensation, as well as skill development, and many internal promotions.

Parker takes pride in the warm organizational culture it has developed in over 100+ years of operation. We respect and reward employees who work cooperatively with staff, take initiative, and share their views to help improve the organization.

And Parker takes pride in the many well-regarded benefits it offers employees, including tuition reimbursement, group health insurance plans, a fully-funded pension, life insurance, contributions towards gym memberships, competitive pay, long-term disability, generous paid time off, benefits starting at 22 hours per week, and much more.
