HOUSTON, Aug. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Great Place To Work® and PEOPLE magazine have recognized Venterra Realty as one of the 2023 PEOPLE Companies That Care®.
The PEOPLE Companies That Care list is based on over 1.3 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing the experiences of more than 7.5 million employees. Rankings are based on the feedback of employees at organizations eligible for this year’s list.
Companies also submit essays that are validated by team member survey data to give a complete picture of the way an organization cares for its employees, its community, and the planet. To be considered for the list, companies must be Great Place To Work Certified and have at least 10 U.S. employees.
Earning a spot means that Venterra has surpassed rigorous benchmarks, establishing itself as one of the best companies to work for in the U.S. and as an organization that is truly demonstrating care.
“As a company that prioritizes a ‘people-first’ approach to business, we are thrilled to receive recognition alongside other organizations that share a similar belief in the powerful potential of care,” said Venterra CEO, John Foresi. “Our collective achievements are a reflection of the exceptional individuals on our team, and we hold a deep gratitude for their unwavering dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of our residents and their colleagues.”
“Care is a fundamental part of our culture at Venterra, making this award a particularly meaningful honor for us,” added Andrew Stewart, Venterra Chairman. “From volunteering and charitable contributions to creating unforgettable ‘WOW’ moments for colleagues or residents, the Venterra team consistently seeks avenues to give back. The acknowledgment of these actions by PEOPLE and Great Place to Work ® not only gives us great satisfaction but will also further propel our culture of care forward.”
The Companies That Care list is highly competitive. Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifiers.
“This was the year when we saw if companies meant it when they promised to put employees first,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “Caring for people isn’t a by-product or afterthought for the very best companies — it’s a core part of how they create value for their customers and communities.”
“The companies on this list keep their employees and their communities front and center, while thinking about how we can work together better — and do better for our neighbors and our planet,” said PEOPLE editor–in-chief Wendy Naugle. “We’re proud to partner with Great Place to Work to highlight these outstanding efforts.”
