“It’s always great to know that our residents think we’re a great place to live,” says Mary Ellen Thieroff, Marketing Director of Royal Oaks, an established Life Plan Community in Sun City, AZ. “But we’re also glad to know that our team members think we’re a great place to work. That’s why we’re so pleased to be honored as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Aging Services by Fortune and Great Place to WorkⓇ.”
What makes this honor so unique is that rankings and ratings are based solely on employee feedback. Team members rank their experience on more than 60 elements, including how much employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions and team camaraderie. Royal Oaks was ranked #5 in the small to medium category.
“I’ve never heard of a company that throws an employee appreciation breakfast every month or has an employee appreciation fund,” says one team member. “I feel valued and worthwhile!”
“Royal Oaks is one of a kind,” says Mary Ellen. “The CEO knows everyone by name, is genuinely interested in them as individuals and keeps staff members informed of what is going on around campus.”
Employees overwhelmingly state that Royal Oaks is an inspiring and rewarding place to work. It offers interesting jobs, excellent benefits, opportunities for career advancement and the invaluable satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of others. Another standout of Royal Oaks is the scholarship program, which offers financial resources to team members to further their education and training, regardless of their field of study.
“We believe that treating our staff with care and respect is just the right thing to do,” says Mary Ellen. “When your team members feel cared for and empowered, their confidence, happiness and satisfaction result in the highest quality care for our residents.”
