Great Place to Work Institute has honored Legend Senior Living® with certification as a Great Place to Work for the second year in a row. The certification process considered more than 1,000 employee surveys from across Legend Senior Living’s 40 locations in six states.
Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s residence impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.
“This is a really big deal; not many companies in our business can say they’ve been certified as a Great Place to Work® two years in a row,” said Matt Buchanan, Executive Vice President. “Associate workplace satisfaction is essential to fulfill our mission in meeting the standards of quality and customer service for residents. If we’re not fostering a culture that creates a great work environment, the standards of quality will likely not be met."
“The customer ultimately benefits from Legend being certified as a Great Place to Work,” Buchanan continued. “It’s something for everyone to celebrate.”
“We applaud Legend Senior Living for seeking certification and releasing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care affiliate Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”
