2017 Top Workplaces Award

2017 Best Places to Work - Brightview Senior Living

Brightview Senior Living’s parent company, The Shelter Group, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor in the large business category by The Baltimore Sun. The company was also honored as a Top Workplace for Communication.


Based solely on the results of employee feedback surveys administered by Energage, formerly WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement, several other aspects of workplace culture were also measured, including Ethics, Meaningfulness, Benefits, and Direction, to name a few.


In 2016, Shelter/ Brightview was awarded a Top Workplace honor for the Most Ethical Workplace.


“Strong senior leaders set the tone for high-performing companies,” stated Energage in a statement about the awards. “But when it comes to judging whether an organization is a terrific place to work, there’s only one audience that matters: the employees.”


“We are delighted to receive this tremendous honor for another year,” said Marilynn Duker, Chief Executive Officer of The Shelter Group/ Brightview Senior Living. “We are especially proud because the honor is based on associate feedback.”


Continued Marilynn, “It’s been a busy and exciting year, and, with the evolution of the company, we now have over 3,500 associates throughout the organization. Integrity and transparency have been hallmarks of the organization since the company was founded nearly 35 years ago. These values continue to guide us today.”
