“Our corporate culture centers on having a passion to care for the families we serve,” says Mary Ann Malack-Ragona. “We share our commitment, resources, knowledge and expertise to make sure that no family ever stands alone.” Employees at Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. (ADRC) don’t work on a time clock and aren’t micro-managed. “My belief is that if I hire a person based on skills and I see those skills at work, my job is then to make sure they have the tools and resources to succeed,” says Malack-Ragona. “I also believe in the need for continual staff development and recognition.” Stress relief is high on ADRC’s priority list, and can include unscheduled pizza parties, a surprise flower delivery or just an informal get-together to vent.
“Love the work you do, love the people you work with and love the success you create together.”
