Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC) announces its certification as a Great Place to Work in senior care by the Great Place to Work Institute. The certification process considered feedback offered by employees through surveys across campus. Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.

“We are honored by this recognition from Great Places to Work,” said VP of Human Resources Melissa Kammer. “This affirms our commitment to creating an employee centric culture where every voice matters.”

“We applaud CESLC for seeking certification and releasing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care affiliate Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”
