Nestled in a small business strip in the bustling suburb of Inver Grove Heights is one of HealthStar’s busiest branch offices. Those who have been with HealthStar for awhile will remember this office once located on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis.
The Inver Grove Heights office serves the entire Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. They provide home and community-based services (PCA, Homemaking, ICLS, IHS) and Skilled Home Health services (Home Health Aide, Alzheimer’s care, and Skilled Nursing/Therapy services). They’re even our home base for our new Maintenance Therapy program! Yeah, they’re busy.
Andrew Vang, Operations Manager, decided it was necessary to recharge. He wanted to provide an opportunity for everyone to step away from work for a bit and relax. What better way to recharge than a surprise spa day?
What was on the agenda? A 10-minute-deep meditation session followed by face masks and manicures. Andrew also created a spa station with fresh fruit, smoothies, infused water, and spa music. Even better? Andrew gifted each member of the staff with a gift bag! He filled it full of self-care goodies for staff to use throughout the workday.
HealthStar believes building genuine relationships with your coworkers creates an environment where collaboration and teamwork thrive. Regardless of if your coworker is in the office next to you, out at a client’s home providing care, or even a few states away (shoutout to our Arizona and New Mexico offices!). Taking an hour out of your day to stop and talk about something other than work goes a long way! (The facemasks and manicures are just a bonus)
A special thank you to everyone at our Inver Grove Heights office for the amazing work you do for our clients! A special shout-out to Andrew for surprising his team and practicing the 24 ECC values of Calm Peace (with a spa day), Attentiveness (for knowing when his team needed some TLC) and Courage (for being photographed with a facemask on and allowing us to post it on the internet).
