    Pros

    Through this unprecedented time, our leadership here at GreatCall has led us with compassion, grace and patience. The situation is constantly changing but our leaders have kept us informed to the best of their abilities and have kept our health and safety their top priority. Our company is essential in this time of crisis and ensuring we are still providing the lifesaving services to our customers (those most vulnerable at this time) is critical. Not only have employee's stepped up in this time of crisis to continue to answer calls but leadership has put in place protocols to keep us safe. If you are looking for an organization that is dedicated to its employees, safeguards its culture and truly believes in meaningful work - GreatCall is the company you've been looking for.
