Location: Highlands Ranch

Rank: 7 in the medium company category

The culture: Vi’s philosophy is centered on core values of integrity, compassion and excellence.

“These guiding principles are behind everything we do,” an employee shared. “The way we serve our residents, the way we engage our employees and the way we lead our company. We never lose sight of our unique work environment — our residents’ homes.  Our approach creates a friendly, family-like atmosphere in which employees benefit from their relationships with residents and with one another.”

Perks: Employees in non-manager roles receive an annual bonus from a fund sponsored by Vi’s residents. In 2014, more than $276,000 was raised by the residents, with an average bonus of nearly $1,500.

Giving back: Employees participate in the Annual Alzheimer’s Walk and host an annual Denver-area event to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association, with games, a dunk tank, prizes, and a live band. Vi at Highlands Ranch hosts an annual MUDD Volleyball tournament to raise money for the March of Dimes.

The inside scoop:  “Our employees’ passion for serving older adults creates an exceptional work environment that contributes to our success,” ModernThink results shared. “These bonds are so strong that in many of the Vi communities, residents have established formal programs such as scholarships, for the benefit of our employees and their family members. In some communities, residents provide English language training to employees who speak English as a second language.  Over 500 employees company-wide (nearly one-fifth of Vi’s work force) have taken advantage of this program since its inception.”
