Holiday Retirement continues trend as Great Place to Work in 2019

May 22, 2019

ORLANDO, Fla., May 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Holiday Retirement announced its certification as a great place to work for the second year in a row by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work Institute®. The honor also extends to nearly 90 percent of Holiday Retirement’s senior living communities across 42 states, a nine percent increase from last year’s first-time participation results.

The designation was based on extensive ratings provided by Holiday Retirement associates through The Culture Audit and Trust Index Survey. These tools provide insight into an organization’s value system, programs and practices, and measure levels of credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

“Holiday Retirement’s mission is to help older people live better,” said Lilly Donohue, Holiday Retirement’s CEO. “But our team members don’t just say it; they live and breathe it. They are the ones truly making success happen. This recognition from Great Place to Work validates our efforts to foster happy and engaged associates so they feel fully supported as they live out our mission.”

Holiday Retirement employees submitted 7,356 surveys, an eight percent increase in participation over last year, which were evaluated for certification by Great Place to Work® analysts. The following 233 Holiday Retirement communities received Great Place to Work distinction:
