The Good Samaritan Society is showing its appreciation for staff members during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. The Society announced a program that will support its nearly 17,000 employees across the nation.
It’s a program that will provide a one-time bonus payment to all full-time hourly employees and cover their health insurance for the next three months.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on everything we do,” says Randy Bury, president of the Good Samaritan Society. “We owe a debt of gratitude to our frontline caregivers who are protecting the most vulnerable during this time of great need.”
Full-time hourly (non-exempt) employees at the Good Samaritan Society will receive a $300 bonus on their mid-April paychecks. A $150 bonus will be given to part-time employees, while PRN employees will receive a $50 bonus.
The Good Samaritan Society will also cover health insurance premiums through the months of April, May and June for all full-time hourly employees who have coverage.
All employees will also have flexible use of paid time off and access to the employee crisis fund, which provides financial support to employees who experience sudden, emergent and catastrophic financial difficulties.
Randy says he and all the Society leaders are thankful for everything staff members are doing to serve residents during these challenging times.
“Our support plan offers much-deserved assistance to our employees,” says Randy. “Our staff’s determination to continue to provide the best care to all those we serve has never been more critical.”
