WICHITA, KS. — For the fifth time, Legend Senior Living® has earned certification as a Great Place to Work® based on a yearly third-party, anonymous survey of employees. Legend Senior Living, a family-owned senior living provider, owns and operates nearly 50 Legend and Windsor residences in six states.
The Great Place to Work® Certification is awarded to organizations that deliver excellent employee experiences and demonstrate best-in-class people practices based on a rigorous assessment process. The assessment is based on the Great Place to Work® model, which evaluates a workplace based on its Trust Index® and Culture Audit® attributes.
“Being named a Great Place to Work is always a cause for celebration at Legend,” said Legend Executive Vice President Matt Buchanan. “We are humbled to receive the certification for the fifth time because it affirms our commitment to enabling associates to thrive professionally and personally.
“The senior living industry is one that offers job satisfaction unlike any other,” Buchanan added. “The opportunities for longevity and growth for associates all while serving people is unmatched. This certification re-affirms those strengths for an industry that will see unprecedented growth in the coming years.”
Certification is based on an objective survey of employees, and because employee feedback and independent analysis determine the scores, Great Place to Work Certification is considered a reliable, objective measurement of employer performance and employee satisfaction. According to the survey, 82% of Legend Senior Living employees said it is a great place to work compared to 57% at typical U.S.-based companies. Nine Legend locations achieved a 90% or higher Trust Index. An audit measuring trust, values, leadership effectiveness, innovation, development, and diversity was also taken to evaluate Legend’s culture.
Legend Senior Living is a privately held senior housing and services company that each year grows the number of properties it owns and operates; the company currently owns and operates nearly 50 independent living, assisted living, memory care, and personal care communities in Florida, Colorado, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania. Legend has been recognized as one of Fortune magazine’s Top 25 Senior Living companies in the country.
