Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine have recognized Asbury Communities, Inc., as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. Asbury Solomons is part of Asbury, the nation's 16th largest not-for-profit system of continuing care retirement communities.
“Asbury is proud to be recognized by its associates for creating one of the best workplaces in Aging Services. This shows what so many of us already know: that Asbury associates enjoy working in our organization and, most importantly, that they have a positive impact on residents’ lives,” said Doug Leidig, President and CEO of Asbury Communities.
Great Place to Work evaluated more than 50 elements of Asbury associates’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which associates trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are determined by associates’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. The ranking considered more than 76,000 employee surveys from organizations in the industry.
“Associates enjoy multiple opportunities and pathways for career development at Asbury, and many cite a family atmosphere as one of the aspects they value most about their workplace,” said Leidig. “That speaks to the relationships they develop not only with the residents they serve, but also with each other. Benefits that incorporate associate feedback and provide a living wage so that every associate has the opportunity to live with dignity are another important piece contributing to our workplace culture.”
