Brightview Senior Living takes Fortune Magazine's top spot for a second consecutive year
Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns, and operates more than 40 senior living communities along the east coast, is thrilled to announce its recognition as the Number One Fortune Best Workplace for Aging Services™ 2020. The list calculates anonymous survey feedback representing more than 189,000 U.S. employees working in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry. Brightview Senior Living has ranked first in the aging services category for the second consecutive year. It follows accolades for 2020 Certified Great Place to Work and Fortune Best Workplaces for Women in 2019.
“We are humbled and proud to be Fortune’s #1 Best Workplace for Aging Services. It takes our entire team of 4,800 associates to make Brightview a great workplace. We are all committed to creating a rewarding environment for our associates where everyone feels connected, engaged, and fulfilled. We know that being a Great Place to Work creates a more satisfying and enjoyable environment, which ultimately translates into being a Great Place to Live for our residents. We are so proud and grateful for our talented team of associates who bring our mission to life.” - Doug Dollenberg, President of Brightview Senior Living.
Brightview achieved top honors because of the direct employee survey feedback. Fortune noted some respondents saying, “The organization fully supports the associates. Specifically, during COVID. They provided a food pantry, extra pay, time off, complimentary associate meals when on shift. They value input and care for all levels of associates.” Brightview has been focused on creating a great workplace since the company was founded.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Brightview Senior Living took the No. #1 spot on the list.

About Best Workplaces for Aging Services™
To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard. To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place to Work requires that Trust Index© survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better. We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results. Companies appear on either an At-Home Care or Senior Housing & Care list segment. All At-Home Care companies appear on the same list, regardless of their size. Senior Housing & Care companies are divided into large and small or medium companies. Those Senior Housing & Care companies with 10 to 999 people were considered for the small and medium category; those with 1,000 employees or more were considered for the large category.
