So many great things in life start at
Just ask David Ganzsarto, CEO of
Alternate Solutions HomeCare, and Tessie
Ganzsarto, the company’s president.
David, who grew up an entrepreneur, met
more than his mate when he teamed up with
Tessie, who was previously employed in a
home health care organization.
When Tessie’s previous employer was
bought out, her career was changed, and
she felt empty. And so, the two decided it
was time to take their lives in a new direction, first starting up in 1999 with supplemental staffing from an agency that supplied labor to home health care facilities
and hospitals in the Dayton area.
They hit the natural bumps that come
with starting up a business, but the lessons
of Tessie’s empty feeling never went away.
Even as the company has continued to
grow, David still meets with all 326 employees annually to get to know them on a personal level. With the goal of being the preferred provider for customers, the starting
point is taking care of the employees who
serve those customers. During those personal meetings with David each employee creates their own performance standards that
help drive their personal goals as well as the
goals of Alternate Solutions. As a result of
those personal efforts, the care given by
employees is exactly what the company
needs to push it forward: Customer surveys
have produced an average rate of 94 percent
satisfaction. That, to say the least, makes for
quite a happy home.
