For the past 10 years, Trilogy Health Services has applied as a Best Place to Work in Kentucky. And for the past 10 years, the senior living provider has made the list. This accomplishment is no small feat; it signifies a shared consensus across Trilogy’s Kentucky campuses and its Louisville based Home Office – that Trilogy cares about its employees, and that they in turn care about the company they work for. Trilogy was ranked #18 out of the 31 companies on the Large Company list.

“On behalf of every Trilogy employee, we are thrilled to receive such a prestigious award,” commented John Eckman, Senior Vice President of Employee Services. “Being recognized for 10 years in a row and being inducted into the Best Places to Work Winner’s Hall of Fame is a special honor for us. The achievement is a tribute to a leadership team that works closely together, a fabulous culture and staying true to our values. Our employees put others’ needs ahead of their own and come to work with a servant’s heart. That makes for a remarkable work experience. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves, which allows us to also have a lot of fun. It’s been a real pleasure to experience Trilogy’s growth and to know that we are getting better every year.”

“At Trilogy, our culture is the foundation for everything we do,” commented Randall Bufford, President and CEO of Trilogy Health Services. “Our employees believe in this culture, and they live our values every day. I’m constantly amazed by their generosity, humility, and dedication to each other, as well as to the people they serve. We have always believed that if we treat our employees like royalty, they will in turn treat our customers like royalty. This prestigious award is a testament to that belief. We are very honored to have received this recognition for 10 years running.”

As a company that is only 20 years old, Trilogy has now spent half of its existence as a BPTW. They can credit this in large part to their company culture and values, which place an emphasis on employee satisfaction, growth, and assistance. From the moment they join the Trilogy team, every employee is made aware that Trilogy is invested in their personal and professional success.

Those looking to grow their careers are provided guidance through Trilogy’s Nurse Mentor, Caregiver Preceptor, and Administrator in Training programs, among others. Through the Trilogy Foundation, Trilogy also provides education assistance to those seeking to take their career to the next level. Since 2007, the company has provided over $4.2 million in Education Assistance funds. These funds have taken the form of Employee Scholarships, Dependent Scholarships, Student Loan Repayments, Tuition Reimbursement and even Certification Assistance.

While supporting employees during times of growth is important, Trilogy also understands the power of being there for employees in times of need. To date, the Trilogy Foundation has granted 1,667 Emergency Assistance awards. These funds have helped employees rebuild their homes after natural disasters, take the time to recover after major surgeries, prevent home evictions, and so much more. What’s more, these funds come in large part from fellow Trilogy employees, 11,317 of which donate weekly to the Trilogy Foundation through payroll deductions. 

Through Trilogy’s TrilogyFIT program, employees can also find guidance, support, and encouragement when it comes to their health and wellbeing. Whether they’re pursuing a more active lifestyle, trying to quit smoking, or are just searching for new and better ways to find peace of mind, TrilogyFIT provides them the tools to do so.

It’s true that all of these programs help make Trilogy a Best Place to Work. However, one of the most powerful ways Trilogy touches the lives of its employees is through its acts of recognition. Each campus hosts regular ER3 celebrations (Relationships, Recognition, Retention) for its employees, and campus leaders are empowered to recognize employees for great ideas, hard work, and a ‘team approach works best’ attitude. Each year, the company also awards a select group of caregivers, known as Difference Makers, at their companywide meeting. These exceptional men and women are celebrated for personifying what Trilogy believes in, namely, taking care of others.
