Employer Case Study

The Situation
Brightview Senior Living currently operates 21 communities in the eastern United States, with 2 more opening in Maryland this year. It plans to open 4-5 communities over the next 2 years. As a result, it needs to hire a significant number of executives and department heads to lead their communities — but, seeks high quality applications and interest, reducing hours of screening time.

The Solution
“Brightview Senior Living relies on effective technology to aid in company-based screening initiatives that ensure the highest quality candidates rise to the top. When selecting associates, we look for someone who has demonstrated the ability to lead and embrace our core values of Service, Teamwork, Action, Reputation and Success (STARS). We have chosen to partner with the Senior Living Career Center as a means to connect us with qualified senior living professionals more efficiently than generic job boards unassociated with the healthcare industry. We are using the career center to find our company’s next leaders.”
