MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Sunrise Senior Living, an industry pioneer and leading provider of senior living communities that offer individualized experiences and best-in-class care, announces that it has again received certification as a Great Place to Work® for the fifth time.
The certification was based on results from the Great Place to Work® survey, which U.S. Sunrise team members completed this April. The survey found that more than 75 percent of all respondents said that Sunrise is a great place to work, and 85 percent of team members felt that they make a difference and that their job has special meaning. Additionally, the number of team members who completed the survey doubled since last year.
“For the last 40 years, we have worked to provide all our team members with a fulfilling career in a supportive environment. We believe it is through supporting and building up our team members that we can authentically live our mission to champion quality of life for all seniors,” said Jack R. Callison, Jr., Chief Executive Officer for Sunrise Senior Living. “I have seen firsthand since joining the team the incredible commitment of our team members and how their dedication to service builds a culture that we can be truly proud of.”
Great Place to Work® is the only company culture award in the U.S that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated based on data analysis and evaluation by independent research firm Activated Insights. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience regardless of employees’ race, gender, age, disability status, role within the organization, or any other classification.
“We are honored to once again be certified as a Great Place to Work® and are pleased by both the quantity of responses as well as the great insight into our culture our team members provided,” said Mary Kay Gribbons, Chief Human Resources Officer at Sunrise Senior Living. “I am proud of our culture which we will continue to build at Sunrise. I look forward to further connecting with our team members across the organization on ways we can continue to improve so Sunrise will truly be a home for all.”
