Edgehill Receives Company Award for Excellent Leadership, High Employee Loyalty and Retention

STAMFORD, CT–Edgehill, a Stamford-based Benchmark Senior Living Community, received the company’s Ripple Award at the 16th Annual Awards Gala in Boston. The Ripple Award recognizes Edgehill’s “ripple effect” of excellent leadership and meaningful human connection, high associate or employee loyalty score, low turnover rate and highest retention rate in the company.

“The Edgehill staff embodies the values making Benchmark a best place to work,” says Veronica Barber, Benchmark’s senior vice president of human capital. “They have been successful in producing exceptional results in serving an organization in which residents, families and associates understand and feel connected to one another. We are confident they will continue to ‘be the benchmark’ for our organization as well as for our industry in maintaining employee satisfaction and serving as a role model for transforming lives through human connection.”

Families and residents describe the community as lively and friendly and the associates as the heart and soul of their home. Edgehill continues to maintain the highest retention rate among the nearly 60 Benchmark communities.

“We received one of the highest scores in associate loyalty with a Net Promoter Score of 75,” says Edgehill Executive Director Christopher Barstein. “This is one more acknowledgement of how committed and dedicated our associate team is to connecting with our residents and making a difference in every life we touch.”

Benchmark recognizes exceptional Benchmark associates and communities in the prior year at an annual awards gala, held this year at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum near Boston. The annual Ripple Award is among numerous honors bestowed upon Edgehill in recent months. Its sub-acute rehabilitation unit was ranked as one of the top 64 performing nursing homes in Connecticut for 2017-2018 by U.S. News & World Report, and in June it received the prestigious 2018 BronzeCommitment to Quality Award from the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living, recognizing its commitment to improving quality care.

Set on the spacious grounds of a former family retreat in Stamford, Conn., Edgehill is a Type A Lifecare, all-inclusive continuing care retirement community. As part of the Edgehill Advantage, the community offers maintenance-free senior housing, a wide variety of premium services and amenities, and a full continuum of on-site health care.
