CHICAGO, IL – For the second year in a row, Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored Vi Senior Living as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Aging Services, ranking fifth on the list. The Best Workplaces for Aging Services is one of a series of rankings based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. All of Vi’s communities and corporate office were also recently awarded the Great Place to Work certification.
Vi’s ranking is based on anonymous survey feedback representing more than 220,000 employees working in senior housing and care and at-home care in the aging services industry. Employees responded to more than 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work for All™, including trust of company leadership, respect with which people are treated, fairness of workplace decisions, and camaraderie within the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies that best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
“We work with over 3,000 senior care locations around the United States, and Vi has consistently shown to be among the best,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, CEO of Great Place to Work’s Senior Care Division. “From the extremely high response rate by Vi employees each year to how Vi employees describe their pride in and love of their work, we congratulate Vi on its successes. Our research shows that this level of employee engagement translates into high quality of care and services for seniors.”
Frequently recognized for its commitment to employee growth and development, Vi was recently the recipient of three Chief Learning Officer magazine’s LearningElite awards, in addition to being named to Training magazine’s annual “Training Top 125” list. Richardson was also recently awarded a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2019, ranking at number 19 on a list of the 100 top leaders who employees love working for.
“We recognize the significant role that employee satisfaction plays in the high quality of care we provide for our residents,” said Randy Richardson, President of Vi. “We strive to cultivate an engaging workplace that enables, rewards, and advances our team’s professional goals, and drives everyone to succeed, so the Best Workplaces for Aging Services recognition for the second year in a row affirms our mission.”
With a robust collection of employee benefits as well as a number of training and development programs such as tuition reimbursement, a 24-hour online university, and free Rosetta Stone language training, Vi has been able to recruit and retain more than 3,000 dedicated employees that provide best-in-class service to residents.
