Five Years as a Fortune Best Workplace in Aging Services

Brightview Ranks Second on Fortune Best Workplaces for Aging Services™ 2023

Brightview Senior Living holds top-two ranking for five consecutive years

Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns, and operates 47 senior living communities along the East Coast, is thrilled to announce its placement as Number 2 on the Fortune Best Workplaces for Aging Services™ 2023 list. This is Brightview’s fifth year on the list, placing first or second on the list all five years. The Best Workplaces in Aging Services award is based on an analysis of survey responses from more than 168,000 current employees in the aging services industry. In that survey, 86 percent of Brightview employees who responded to the survey said the company is a great place to work, compared with 57 percent of employees in a typical U.S.-based company.

“Ranking once more on Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Aging Services list is an accomplishment we do not take lightly. Our entire team is committed to making Brightview a Great Place to Work for our associates and a Great Place to Live for our residents. We’re thrilled and honored with this recognition, and we have our dedicated associates to thank for making this possible,” stated Doug Dollenberg, President & CEO of Brightview Senior Living. “At all 47 Brightview communities and our Home Office, we have found success because of the genuine care our associates have for each other and for our residents and their families.”

Brightview achieved top honors because of direct employee survey feedback:

  • 92% When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome.
  • 90% I feel good about the ways we contribute to the community.
  • 89% I feel I make a difference here.
  • 89% My work has special meaning: this is not “just a job.”
  • 89% When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride.

To determine the Best Workplaces in Aging Services™ list, Great Place To Work analyzes the survey responses of over 168,000 employees from Great Place To Work-Certified™ companies in the aging services industry. The survey enables employees to share confidential quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization’s culture by responding to 60 statements on a five-point scale and answering two open-ended questions. Collectively, these statements describe a great employee experience, defined by high levels of trust, respect, credibility, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. In addition, companies provide organizational data like size, location, industry, demographics, roles, and levels.

This award follows Brightview’s recent accolades: Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® 2023, Best Independent Living U.S. News and World Report (various communities) 2023, People Magazine Companies Who Care 2022, and Fortune Best Workplaces for Women 2022.
