At the Arbor Company, we work hard to create a culture driven to provide the best possible care to our residents. Because of that dedication, we have received a number of national recognitions for our work environment, and our excellent care for Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. Our mission is to be a leader in exceptional senior care, and to create an environment where everyone can thrive. These national awards and recognitions demonstrate our successful commitment to these goals.
Read on to learn more about these awards, and how we achieved and/or exceeded the standard to be awarded such high honors.
Thirty-five Arbor communities were recognized by U.S. News & World Report as Best Senior Living Communities for 2022-2023. The awards are based on U.S. News’s assessment of each senior living community’s performance from consumer satisfaction surveys administered between March 2021 and February 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities nationwide.
“We are beyond honored to receive this distinction from US News & World Report,” said Judd Harper, President of The Arbor Company. “I am thrilled that our employees’ dedication to providing residents with the best senior care is recognized by residents and their families. This award is a trusted validation and support for families navigating the senior care world.”
“Until now, families have had limited information when comparing providers of independent living, assisted living, memory care, or continuing care,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The Best Senior Living ratings fill this informational gap with comprehensive and transparent data to help older consumers and their families identify high-quality senior living communities that meet their needs and preferences.”
Great Place to Work Certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience. The certification process surveys employees, as well as examines the workforce through a series of questionnaires. Through independent analysis and surveying employees, this certification gives a genuine picture of the company culture. A Great Places to Work certification provides researched-backed verification that a company offers an exceptional employee experience, and is a globally recognized standard of a great workplace.
To form this list of Best Workplaces in Aging Services, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm Great Place to Work® to analyze anonymous survey feedback of employees working in senior care across the nation.
The bulk of the evaluation (85%) is based on employee feedback about their workplace experiences, and their ability to reach their full potential as part of their current organization–no matter what their role or position in senior care. These experiences are then analyzed relative to the organization size, make up, and relation to peers in the senior care industry.
The remaining 15% of this evaluation is based on all of the organization’s employees, and their experience of innovation, values, and effectiveness of their leaders across the board to make sure the feedback is consistent across the organization.
In order to even be considered for this list, companies must have already met the Great Place to Work-Certified standard.
Because The Arbor Company operates in 11 states across the country, our communities have had the great honor to receive local awards that demonstrate excellence in senior care, leadership, and workplace culture in many different cities, counties, and states within our footprint. These recognitions vary and are often specific to the local area–please contact your local Arbor community for specific information.
Our team members and staff are often singled out for awards, recognition and high honors for their contributions to their local communities and commitment to our residents and their families.
The Arbor Company is honored to work with such esteemed staff, and focused on continuing to provide a culture where these individuals can meet their potential in delivering exceptional care to seniors in their communities. These recognitions wouldn’t be possible without the exceptional service provided by our staff and the support we receive from our residents and families.
