Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns and operates 45 communities along the east coast, is honored to announce it has ranked on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® 2021 list for its exceptional company culture. As the only senior living company to make the list, this prestigious award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than half a million current employees across the U.S.
The Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list is largely based on direct survey feedback from employees, benchmarked versus all other organizations. Some of the survey feedback from Brightview associates include:
- 94% believe ‘You are made to feel welcome when you join the company’
- 93% believe ‘I feel good about the ways we contribute to the community’
- 92% believe ‘I feel a sense of pride when I look at what we accomplish’
- 91% believe ‘I feel I make a difference here’
- 91% believe ‘My work has special meaning: this is not “just a job”’
“Every day, we are grateful for our dedicated associates who care for our residents like family,” said Doug Dollenberg, President of Brightview Senior Living. “We have always said our associates are what make Brightview a vibrant community. We know that if we’re a great place to work, in turn, our communities will be a great place to live. For Brightview associates to have provided such extraordinary feedback during the challenge of a pandemic is truly humbling.”
Brightview was assessed on how associates’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics to ensure that they are creating a great workplace for all.
The 2021 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list honors the most heroic companies supporting their people and communities in the U.S. during this historically challenging year. Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact.
Sixty percent of each company’s score is based on confidential employee feedback. The remaining 40 percent is based on the programs each company said they created to support their people and communities in response to the pandemic. Companies need to employ at least 1,000 US employees to be considered for the 100 Best Companies list, and at least 100,000 employees globally to be considered for the Best Big Companies to Work For list.
“Congratulations to the 100 Best Companies to Work For. These companies stood out for heroic efforts to care for their employees, their customers and our society, in a difficult year,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Remarkably, our research found that employee experience scores rose at these workplaces overall last year – a testament to the resilience of their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”
