Senior Star named FORTUNE Best Workplaces in Aging Services™ 2023 ~ Leading with Love!

We are bursting with excitement and pride as we announce that we have again been named to the
FORTUNE® Best Workplaces in Aging Services™ list for 2023. This is a HUGE feat for Senior Star, making this exclusive list five out of the past six years. Since survey results come directly from the hearts and minds of our associates, inclusion on this list reflects over a decade of intentionality, putting our associates first, knowing that happy associates mean happy residents.

The Heart of Senior Star…
… begins with the Senior Star promise to ‘Do for each other with love’ and our values expressed in the uplifting acronym CHEER – Commit to fiscal responsibility, Honor each customer, Embrace innovation, Enjoy what we do and Respect each associate. These values are just words, but when aligned company-wide, magic happens.

Senior Star leaders recognized many years ago that leading with love is essential to a meaningful work life experience. Associates are empowered by leadership when making decisions to balance head and heart, and encouraged to make decisions affecting residents and fellow associates by asking the questions “what would I do if it was my loved one/friend?” We aren’t afraid to use the word LOVE in the workplace. It is the heart of everything we do. The open-door policy is not just a concept; cell phone numbers and emails of all levels of leadership are readily available to every associate. “Business excellence is at the heart of all that we do…” Anja Rogers, Senior Star CEO, goes on to share, “It’s a love thing that makes one smile. It’s a love thing that makes one think. It’s a love thing that makes one feel valued, appreciated and like they belong. When we all feel safe, valued and know those around us only want the best for us, we know it truly is a love thing!”
