VERO BEACH, Fla., June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- For five consecutive years, Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights have honored Watercrest Senior Living Group with certification as a Great Place to Work.
Watercrest Senior Living Group celebrates their fifth consecutive year as a certified Great Place to Work. Watercrest Senior Living communities are located throughout the southeastern United States.
The certification process involved surveying 100% of Watercrest's 794 associates from over 18 locations across the southeastern United States. More than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job were evaluated, including 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, regardless of title or position.
'Celebrating five consecutive years as a certified Great Place to Work reinforces Watercrest Senior Living Group's reputation as a best-in-class senior living provider in our nation,' says Marc Vorkapich , principal and CEO of Watercrest Senior Living Group. 'Our associates positive feedback solidifies that Watercrest is fostering a culture where team members are recognized for their unique contributions and encouraged to cultivate their God-given talents.'

Selected candidates proudly display their core value on their name badge, honoring a call to serve seniors. During this year's survey process, one Watercrest associate wrote, 'I have worked in the assisted living field for nearly 15 years and this was by far the most organized and professional hiring and onboarding and new hire training that I have ever received from a company as a new associate.'
Great workplaces are defined by employees' levels of trust, pride and camaraderie, but the best workplaces are characterized by factors such as executive team effectiveness, innovation experience, complexity, and financial sustainability, all which contribute to a great workplace for associates at every level within the organization.
'We focus on hiring for character and consistently developing each associate's competencies,' says Whitney Lane , Chief Operating Officer of Watercrest. 'By providing a strong foundation of leadership, training and trust, we encourage our associates to excel and to support the growth of their fellow associates, which in turn means an exceptional experience for our residents.'
