Why Another Certification?
We need a certification that has serious teeth. A certification that actually means that a senior living organization has not only excelled relative to other senior living organizations but has achieved excellence when benchmarked against the best of the best organizations worldwide in all industry sectors.
The first awardees are:
- Christian Living Communities, Colorado
- Evergreen Senior Living, Kansas
- Jewish Home Family, New Jersey
- Lutheran Senior Services, Missouri
- SageAge Marketing, Pennsylvania
- Sequoia Living, California
- White Horse Village, Pennsylvania
These organizations are setting the standard for senior living.
I talked to Denise Boudreau, president at Drive, and she is thrilled: “Our World’s Best Culture Certification is all about highlighting organizations that are creating a superior work culture and service, catapulting them to the global stage.”
Earning this prestigious award involves acing key benchmarks from the globally acclaimed Barrett Values Centre’s Culture Assessment, a tool trusted by big names like Mastercard, Wegmans, Prudential, PwC, and Volvo.
Here’s What Happening in These Organizations
Not because of the award, but because of the culture they have created, these senior living organizations have higher occupancy, lower staff turnover, and a much easier time recruiting staff. This all translates into a better bottom line.
You Too Can Do This
As a senior living or long term care organization, you’re up against all industries for top talent, including globally recognized brands. With Drive’s new certification, you’re able to demonstrate your dedication to world-class excellence and a deeply rewarding work experience.
