Vi Achieves Great Place to Work Certification

CHICAGO, IL, July 30, 2018 – Luxury retirement community owner and operator, Vi®, is pleased to announce that all of Vi’s communities, along with the Company’s corporate office, have been certified as Great Places to Work by Great Places to Work U.S. Vi is among only three retirement community operators to have every one of their locations achieve certification in 2018.

“We do not take the fact Vi is one of the few senior living companies having all communities and their corporate office certified as a Great Place to Work for granted,” said Randy Richardson, President and CEO of Vi. “We know we need to continue to earn this honor by continually seeking feedback from our employees and looking for ways to improve. We know at the end of the day, Vi employees are our differentiator.”

Great Place to Work certifications are based solely on employee feedback gathered via Great Place to Work’s annual survey, which is distributed in April. The results reflect responses to the two-part, 60-question survey which focuses on employees’ trust of their employer and opinions of their programs and practices.

"We applaud Vi for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, CEO 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 - critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with Vi should consider as an indicator of high performance,” added Kung. “It’s been such a privilege to work with Vi — they’ve always been a really great brand in senior living.”
