GURNEE, Ill., May 24, 2012 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // -- The CBS Television Network is rebroadcasting the episode of the Emmy-nominated reality television series UNDERCOVER BOSS that features BrightStar Care CEO and Co-Founder Shelly Sun, Friday, June 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
BrightStar Care, one of the fastest growing home healthcare and staffing providers in the country has more than 250 locations across North America. BrightStar Care is one of the few full-service healthcare agencies to offer both medical and non-medical homecare to clients of all ages within their homes, as well as supplemental healthcare staffing to corporate clients such as hospitals and nursing homes.
Shelly Sun, the CEO and Co-Founder of BrightStar Care, said of her experience, "I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate on 'Undercover Boss.' The experience deepened my appreciation for our caregivers and their relentless efforts to improve their clients' quality of life and relieve the stress their families face on a day-to-day basis. I look forward to more people learning about BrightStar Care. We have invested in our caregivers since undergoing this experience by developing an online employee portal to manage their schedule and access over forty hours of free continuing education courses. Our company hires individuals who are passionate about serving, and care deeply about others' well-being and happiness."
Shelly's experience going undercover gave her unique insight into the needs of clients and families and inspired her to come up with the concept for a website that allows family caregivers to create Care Teams around their loved one, stay up to date on the caregiving schedule with a calendar, and stay informed through condition-specific resources. This free website is called CareTogether.com.
Each week, "Undercover Boss" follows a different executive as he or she leaves the comfort of the corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies. While working alongside their employees, they see the effects that their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organizations and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering the unsung heroes who make their companies run.
