We know that to be the best place to live, we must also be the best place to work.
Our employees often tell us their greatest job satisfaction comes from the opportunity to serve and support older people. While we are accustomed to hearing this, it is something we do not take for granted.
Rewarding our employees and helping them grow personally and professionally is key to providing the best service to our residents. Through comprehensive development, recognition and support programs, we are committed to making Atria the workplace of choice for professionals who demonstrate exceptional skill, creativity, work ethic and compassion.
Since 2009, 46 Atria communities have earned local "Top Workplaces" honors.
Each year, we invest nearly $5 million in more than 265,000 hours of front-line employee and manager training, through 80 different programs.
Employee Rewards Programs
- Since 2007, more than $72 million has been paid out to hourly front-line staff across the country through Atria Rewards®, a program which recognizes service longevity and high achievements in the areas of customer satisfaction and Quality Enhancement.
- Full-time Atria employees are eligible to receive 100% tuition reimbursement, up to a maximum of $5,250 each calendar year, for up to 12 credit hours per semester at an accredited college or university. So far, we have paid out more than $2.7 million in tuition reimbursement.
Atria Cares is a 501(c)(3) public charity that provides emergency financial assistance - not loans - to qualifying Atria employees who are faced with financial hardships due to unforeseen and often tragic events in their personal lives. Atria Cares is primarily funded by employee payroll deductions, individual donations and community fundraising.
Atria funds all administrative costs of Atria Cares and makes contributions to Atria Cares in support of its charitable activities, including the Ronnie Boatman Scholarship program. This program awards annually at least one $12,000 scholarship to an eligible dependent of an Atria community employee. To date, more than $270,000 has been awarded to 37 students.
Donations to Atria Cares are tax-deductible, and all contributions go directly to helping Atria employees in need.
