The company increased its trust index score by nearly ten percent during the challenging year of 2021.

“Our certification as a Great Place to Work® is a testament to all of our employees’ hard work and their passion for our culture, our residents, and each other,” said Wayne Powell, Founder and CEO of Civitas Senior Living.

“This achievement is more than national recognition of our culture and programs,” says Powell. “It highlights the important work that we all do every day caring for each other and, most importantly, our residents. It really affirms all the hard work our employees do throughout our communities.”

Team Members Make The Difference

Most Civitas Senior Living team members completed the program’s signature Trust Index© Survey that covered a variety of workplace quality experiences. The audit includes employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Highlights from the survey include:

  • Eighty-nine percent believe their work has special meaning and is not “just a job.”
  • Eighty-six percent feel they make a difference in their role.
  • Eighty-five percent feel a sense of pride when they look at what the company has accomplished.

Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do. Within the survey, employees have an opportunity to give personal feedback regarding what they feel the company can do to improve even further.

Anthony Ormsbee-Hale, Vice President of People Operations at Civitas, led participation in the project.

“In this competitive workforce market, I am honored to see the affirmation from Civitas associates across the nation of the work that we have done to sustain our passionate culture. I couldn’t be prouder of our team for achieving the Great Place to Work® certification,” Ormsbee-Hale said. “Every Civitas community leads in their local market, and it is because of passionate team members who choose Civitas to live out their passion.”

Civitas President and Co-Founder Cooper Vittitow agreed. “We’re proud of the work we have done, which has resulted in over 200 internal promotions in 2021. We look forward to furthering our employee experience efforts using the data from the Great Place to Work survey.”
