WINTER PARK, Fla.—Great Place to Work Institute has honored Holiday Retirement with certification as a Great Place to Work for the fourth consecutive year. This honor extends to 201, or 84 percent, of its senior living communities.

According to the study, 78 percent of employees consider Holiday a great workplace. The Trust Index Survey is based on five aspects of trust: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. The certification process includes anonymous employee surveys from across Holiday’s 240 locations.

Great Place to Work Institute, the 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 community impact, belief that their work makes a different, and feeling their work has special meaning. These rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.

“A strong and engaging work environment allows our employees, and our company, to overcome obstacles—something that was evident throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Lilly Donohue, Holiday Retirement CEO. “We know that our commitment to putting our employees at the center of what we do, is what drives our success at delivering the best services to our customers and upholding our mission of helping older people live better.”

“We applaud Holiday Retirement 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.”

Holiday Retirement employees completed 6,127 surveys, resulting in a 92 percent confidence level and a margin of error of less than ± 5 percent.
