VI ranked No. 4 organization for employee learning by Elearning! magazine

CHICAGO, IL, Sept. 16, 2019 – Vi, leading national developer, owner and operator of high-end continuing care retirement communities, has once again been recognized by Elearning! Magazine with a Learning! 100 Award. For 2019, Vi took the number four spot among 100 elite public- and private-sector organizations recognized for their excellence in learning innovation, collaboration and business performance. This is on the heels of Vi’s recognition as one of Fortune Magazine’s top five best places to work in Aging Services and being recognized by Training Magazine and Chief Learning Officer Magazine for Vi’s award-winning learning and development practices and programs.

“Elearning! Magazine is honored to celebrate excellence in learning,” says Group Publisher Catherine Upton. “Despite rapidly shifting needs across the workforce, technologies and investments, these organizations continue to inspire us with their innovation, learning cultures and business outcomes. Congratulations to all the Learning! 100, past and present.”

Every year, Learning! 100 Award submissions are evaluated on three key criteria: Darden School’s Learning Culture Index, Collaborative Strategies’ Innovation & Collaboration Ratings, and overall organization performance. Vetting for the 2019 awards was increasingly rigorous, limiting third-party nominations and placing increased weight on financial performance. Ultimately, these criteria were used to evaluate, score and rank the Learning! 100, resulting in Vi’s number four ranking on the list of highly respected organizations.

“At Vi, we have always been committed to and invested in our employees,” said Judy Whitcomb, Vi’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Learning, and Organizational Development. “We recognize that satisfied employees are a key driver of the exceptional service and high quality of care we provide for our residents, and the Learning! 100 recognition reinforces the value of those efforts.”

Vi has continued to enhance its learning and development programs at its 10 high-end continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) throughout the U.S., as well as at its corporate office in Chicago. By providing best-in-class training courses and educational opportunities, Vi has been able to retain, engage and advance their employees, contributing to an increased quality of care for residents. With Rosetta Stone classes, tuition reimbursement, management and leadership programs and more, Vi equips employees to excel in their fields.
