The Ann Baiada Award for Excellence in Nursing Leadership
When you’re a valued and highly respected member of our dynamic and caring team, it’s a pretty simple equation. We’ll recognize and reward you for setting and maintaining the highest standards of safety and care in home health services.
The Ann Baiada Award for Excellence in Nursing Leadership was established in 2006 in honor of Ann Baiada's countless contributions to BAYADA Home Health Care. Ann has served as a director of BAYADA Home Health Care for over twenty years; she is a true role model who is committed to excellence, especially in the area of nursing leadership development.
The award celebrates and acknowledges a nursing leader who exemplifies Ann's legacy to empower, inspire, and support those whose lives they touch at BAYADA, and embodies our core values of compassion, excellence, and reliability.
BAYADA Bucks Program
At BAYADA, we are constantly creating new and exciting ways to recognize and reward our field employees for the meaningful work they do. Bucks are vouchers that can be redeemed through our BAYADA Bucks catalog for items such as Tiffany & Co. jewelry, GPS devices, digital cameras, designer handbags, BAYADA branded apparel and much, much more.
Employees receive BAYADA Bucks, for example, in recognition of perfect attendance, call-out coverage, employee referrals, Office Hero nominations, years of service awards, completion of high-tech skills courses, or for receiving special praise from a client. View the BAYADA Bucks catalog.
