Best Places to Work 2015SAN RAFAEL — Whistlestop promotes active and independent lives for Marin County’s older adults, and people with disabilities and health challenges, by providing transportation to appointments and programs at extremely low cost.

“I’m filled with gratitude every day when I see the dedication, commitment and compassion our employees give to our clients,” said CEO Joe O’Hehir.

“Each team member enjoys his or her job, which is focused on ensuring that every adult in Marin has the opportunity to age with dignity, independence and grace. Thanks to our devoted employees, Whistlestop has become the surrogate family for thousands of older adults who face loneliness and isolation.”

An employee said, “Everyone is genuinely concerned about each others’ welfare and happiness. I was sick last week and my boss dropped off Gatorade at my house so I didn’t have to leave home!”

Another worker added, “Our friends and family members are always welcome to visit and eat at the Jackson Café, our on-site restaurant, where employees receive a discount. I can also bring my four-legged family member to work, which is a huge benefit.”

The company encourages and supports employee development and regularly promotes from within.

“We have a good team, and everyone is a team player. Management and staff are very polite — it’s hard to find a wonderful place like this.”
