We Hire Talent
EPSI’s talent for hiring sets us apart from competitors. We invest time, training and resources to get the right person in the right position and on the right work schedule. EPSI’s Human Resources department trains our managers to set each employee up for success by hiring and onboarding them with attention to their strengths. We evaluate what each employee CAN do well, rather than focus on their limitations. And we continue to develop our employees for as long as they work with us, which consistently raises our quality of service to you.
We Hire for Success
While other companies may rush to hire and get employees on the job, EPSI invests in qualified trainers at each contract location to ensure our employees are thoroughly trained to contract and industry standards before their first day on the job. Our trainers are not just employees with work experience; they are certified experts in their field, trained by industry-leading professional organizations, as shown below:
EPSI’s Hospital Environmental Services (HES) trainers are certified by the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) Certified Healthcare Environmental Services Technician (CHEST) program. This is a “train-the-trainer” model we use to ensure our qualified trainers use industry-standard curriculum to train our first-line supervisors, leads, and direct labor workforce on how to effectively kill pathogens and keep your hospitals and clinics safe.
Hospital Quality Control & Operating Room EVS Training
EPSI Quality Control personnel and Operating Room Environmental Services Technicians (EST) are offered AHE Certificate of Mastery in Infection Prevention for Environmental Services Professionals (CMIP). CMIP provides infection prevention training specific to the clinical environment of care.
Custodial Manager Training
EPSI trains its Hospital EVS managers and facility Custodial Managers through the International Executive Housekeeper Association (IEHA)’s Registered/Certified Executive Housekeeper program. IEHA is an industry-leading non-profit organization devoted to helping facility managers maintain cleaner, safer, and healthier facilities. IEHA Executive Housekeeper training distinguishes EPSI managers from other organizations, as our certified managers stay current on the latest in cleaning techniques and technology.
