Each year, the Assisted Living Federation of America recognizes companies who shake up commonly accepted best practices to get even better results with ground-breaking ideas to expand their business, improve service delivery, boost the bottom line, streamline operations, and more. An elite group of senior living companies received ALFA's 2010 Best of the Best Awards. Read about each of the ALFA 2010 Best of the Best Award winners.
It may be no coincidence that all of the senior living companies earning ALFA 2010 Best of the Best Awards share and embrace a corporate culture that values and supports entrepreneurial big ideas. Each of the 33 winners—a record number for the fifth annual awards program—was willing to take a risk and tackle obstacles in new and innovative ways. This year, more than half of all the winning best practices are in the resident services category, and nearly a third relate to human resources. Many of the rest have a strong human resources or resident services component. “What’s striking about many of this year’s winners is how multidimensional they are. They tie employee morale to resident satisfaction, or a commitment to resident wellness with a culture of wellness for employees,” says Richard Grimes, ALFA’s president and CEO. “These companies understand how making improvements in one area can lead to benefits in others as well.” Other take-away trends from the 2010 Best of the Best winners include:
