Brightview Senior Living is ranked on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® 2021 list for its exceptional company culture.
The company, with a presence in Arlington, builds, owns and operates 45 communities on the East Coast, with seven senior living communities in New England.
As the only senior living company to make the list, this award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than half a million current employees across the U.S.
The Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list is largely based on direct survey feedback from employees, bench-marked versus all other organizations. Some of the survey feedback from Brightview associates include:
- 94% believe ‘You are made to feel welcome when you join the company‘
- 93% believe ‘I feel good about the ways we contribute to the community‘
- 92% believe ‘I feel a sense of pride when I look at what we accomplish‘
- 91% believe ‘I feel I make a difference here‘
- 91% believe ‘My work has special meaning: this is not “just a job”‘
“Every day, we are grateful for our dedicated associates who care for our residents like family,” Doug Dollenberg, president of the Baltimore-based Brightview Senior Living, said in an April 19 news release. “We have always said our associates are what make Brightview a vibrant community. We know that if we’re a great place to work, in turn, our communities will be a great place to live. For Brightview associates to have provided such extraordinary feedback during the challenge of a pandemic is truly humbling.”
The 2021 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list honors those companies best supporting their people and communities in the U.S. during this historically challenging year. Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact.
Sixty percent of each company’s score is based on confidential employee feedback. The remaining 40 percent is based on the programs each company said they created to support their people and communities in response to the pandemic. Companies need to employ at least 1,000 U.S. employees to be considered for the 100 Best Companies list, and at least 100,000 employees globally to be considered for the Best Big Companies to Work For list.
