Brightview Senior Living takes Fortune Magazine's top spot for a Third consecutive year
Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns, and operates 45 communities along the east coast, is thrilled to announce its recognition as the Number One Fortune Best Workplaces for Aging Services™ 2021. The Best Workplaces in Aging Services award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 220,000 current employees in the aging services industry. In that survey, 90 percent of employees said Brightview is a great place to work, compared with 59% of the employees at a typical U.S-based company. Brightview Senior Living has ranked first in the aging services category for the third consecutive year.
“We are incredibly honored to be Fortune Magazine’s Number One Best Workplace in Aging Services for the third year in a row,” stated Doug Dollenberg, President of Brightview Senior Living. “We are so proud of and grateful for our 4,700 amazing associates because it is their teamwork, energy and passion that creates Brightview’s special workplace culture. We firmly believe that creating a great place to work is critical to our success and the foundation for delivering exceptional service to our residents across our 45 senior living communities."
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. Brightview achieved top honors because of direct employee survey feedback:
- 94% say “When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome”
- 93% say “I feel good about the ways we contribute to the community”
- 92% say “My work has special meaning: this is not just a job”
- 92% say “When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride”
“Now is an exceptionally exciting time to work at Brightview,” Dollenberg added. “We’re growing at a very fast pace, and with that comes limitless opportunities from a career standpoint. At Brightview, we promote from within and do everything we can to make our associates feel valued and supported.”
This award follows accolades for Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® 2021, 2020-2021 Certified Great Place to Work and Fortune Best Workplaces for Women in 2019.

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.
