Legend Senior Living Earns Great Place to Work® Certification for Sixth Time

WICHITA, Kan., May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Great Place to Work Institute has honored Legend Senior Living® with certification as a Great Place to Work for the sixth time. The certification process considered more than 1,000 employee surveys from across Legend Senior Living’s 58 locations in six states. Nearly 80% of Legend associates rated the company as a Great Place to Work, or 20 points higher than the average company. Legend is also rated higher than the national percentage of employees in senior living. As high as 90 percent of associates at several Legend residences rate the company as a GPTW.

Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.

“The Great Place to Work Certification is extremely important to us as it reflects our consistent dedication to providing a positive experience for every Legend associate, no matter their role in the company,” said Matt Buchanan, President, Legend Senior Living. “It's especially gratifying that the surveys come from the employees themselves to a third-party, which will continue to help attract the most compassionate professionals to serve seniors.”

According to Great Place to Work research, employees are 15 times more likely to choose a company that is certified as a great workplace. Certified great work places also retain and attract more talent and provide a more positive and purposeful work environment.

In addition to consistent certifications as a Great Place to Work, Legend residences are routinely recognized among the Top 25 Senior Living communities by Fortune Magazine and U.S. News & World Report’s Best of Senior Living.
