Department Spotlight: Recruiting Department -March 2019

Welcome to Recruiting! 

Aryn and Saralany champion Homebridge recruitment efforts. Each day we review applications, conduct interviews, and venture across the Bay Area to find people who care about the communities we serve. 

We rely on the feedback and support of our entire team of co-workers, from Home Care Providers to Chiefs & Directors, to inform how we source and recruit new caregivers. 

FOR HOMEBRIDGE STAFF ONLY: Recruiting is also a resource for you! Whether you have questions about your team’s staffing needs or want to know more about the Homebridge Employee Referral Bonus Program ($$), we can help! Email us at jobs@homebridgeca.org for more info. 

See you soon!

2 Questions with Tina

How long have you been at Homebridge and what do you do?

I’ve been at Homebridge for over three years in various roles. I began as a Scheduler, worked as an HCP Supervisor in San Mateo, and worked in our Transitional Care program. Currently, I work as a Timekeeping Supervisor where I support Caregivers by verifying client visits, and making sure meal breaks, travel time, and paid time off are accurate. I’m available to talk to Caregivers if there’s a question about their paycheck and act as a bridge to Care Supervisors.

 

What do you love about working at Homebridge?

At Homebridge, we’re all intertwined like a beautiful spider web. We’re like a family; sometimes there are difficult times and sometimes there are really fun times, but we always come together to make it work. By the time 5 o’clock hits, I love knowing that we all made a difference and many fantastic things happened: a client made it to their doctors’ appointment, two Caregivers worked together to help a client, or a client has a fridge full of food when before it was empty.

Department Spotlight: IT department - February 2019

 

Many people only think of the Information Technology department when their computer is broken, systems aren’t working and they want things fixed…now!  But did you know there’s much more to IT than just frozen PC’s, endless rebooting and frustrating printer jams? 

The Homebridge IT department handles all the organization’s technology and works behind the scenes to identify and resolve issues before they occur.  We are a five-person team that deploys and troubleshoots desktops, laptops, servers, printers, office phones and mobile devices.  

We also configure and monitor the networking equipment that allows systems to communicate. 

We are like the ligaments of the Homebridge organism -- the connective tissue that joins everything.

together and keeps the organization flexibly and securely in motion! 

The department focuses much of its time supporting Procura, the software that enables the scheduling and delivery of our valuable services to clients. The IT team also partners with each department to improve cloud-based systems like ADP for payroll, Salesforce for Training and Workforce Development, and Office 365 for business applications.  

We aim to maintain 99% uptime and 100% customer satisfaction, so please let us know how we can help. Feel free to visit us in the office and share your concerns and recommendations. There are always improvements to be made, and we’re here to make them!

2 Questions with Lali

 

How long have you been at Homebridge and what do you do?

I’ve been with Homebridge for three and a half years. My current role is Training Manager where I oversee our training department, liaise with the Public Authority, am in charge of scheduling trainings, and partner with the programs team.

While everyone knows that we train our own Caregivers, not everyone knows that we also are responsible for training In-Home Supportive Services independent providers and registry workers. One of the things I’m most excited about is our re-design of New Hire Training for our Caregivers that took six months of planning. Now, as part of their training, new Caregivers are shadowing other Caregivers. 

What do you love about working at Homebridge?

I love that the people I work with are the most caring and compassionate people that I’ve ever worked with at any job. Homebridge’s Caregivers really look out for the clients and they do everything they can to help. Seeing this makes me want to do better and motivates me to have Homebridge make an even larger impact in the community because we really do change lives.
