Brightview Senior Living/The Shelter Group Named One Of The Best Places To Work In Baltimore

September 23, 2011

Brightview Senior Living/The Shelter Group was named one of the Best Places to Work in Maryland by the Baltimore Business Journal. As a result of an email survey sent earlier in the summer to associates at the Baltimore Home Office and senior living communities in Maryland, Brightview Senior Living/ The Shelter Group earned the number two rank for companies with more than 500 associates.

“Learning the personality traits, passions and pet peeves of potential employees is a part of the hiring process,” said Marilynn Duker, President of Brightview and The Shelter Group. “We seek people who will take time to get to know residents, the types of activities they enjoy and what their needs are. It is important because employees are given the freedom to take the initiative when working with residents.”

“People feel like they individually have an opportunity to make a difference in our residents’ lives,” said Duker, who was The Shelter Group’s first employee 29 years ago. “It empowers them to decide what will help residents and improve their day.”

“We are thrilled because our strong showing and top award is entirely a reflection of how our associates feel about the company,” commented Marilynn Duker.

Brightview Senior Living is a senior-focused division of The Shelter Group and offers 23 senior living communities in 9 states. The communities include Independent Living, Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care options.
