Thrive Senior Living Named One of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Aging Services by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE

ATLANTA–Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored Thrive Senior Living as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The ranking considered more than 76,000 employee surveys from companies in the Aging Services industry.

Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 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 the level of camaraderie among the team. Rankings are based on anonymous employee feedback representing employees working in senior housing and care as well as at-home care (including hospice) in the United States – rewarding companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

“We are fired-up to be selected as one of the best workplaces in Aging Services,” said Thrive Senior Living President Les Strech. “Thrive’s mission to redefine this industry’s thinking begins from the inside out. We work diligently to build teams of people who are highly aligned on their view of the process of aging. A core conviction of our key leaders is if we create a place where our people love coming to work, our people will create a place where our residents love to come live. We continue to believe that the best solutions are always found closest to the work – what that means is that our community team members always have a seat at the table when decisions are being made.”

The Best Workplaces for Aging Services stands out for excelling in the industry’s rapidly-changing marketplace. Thrive Senior Living continues to enhance its workplace culture with programs that engage employees with residents, such as their roll out of Thrive Smart Suites. They believe artificial intelligence will play a major role in all of our lives in the coming years, but most certainly in communities built for older adults. Thrive has outfitted several of its communities with artificial intelligence that allows team members the joy of spending more time with residents than on tasks. This consistently leads to greater team member satisfaction.

The Best Workplaces for Aging Services is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Thrive Senior Living also was certified a “Great Place to Work” by Activated Insights in 2018.
