June 17, 2021

MPC-GPTW-ImageMoorings Park Communities, the parent company for Moorings Park, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks and the newest community, Moorings Park Grande Lake, is honored to be certified as a Great Place to Work by the Great Place to Work Institute.

“We are so honored to receive this recognition and are so grateful of our partners and the family we have built throughout the organization,” says Dan Lavender, CEO and President of Moorings Park Communities. “Moorings Park Communities successfully embodies diversity, hard work and economic strength to create Simply the Best Life Plan provider for our wonderful members.”

The certification process considered more than 1,000 employee surveys from across Moorings Park Community’s locations. 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. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do. 

“We applaud Moorings Park Communities for seeking certification and releasing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care affiliate Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”

The Fountain of Youth

Moorings Park Communities is widely known as the premier provider of active retirement living in Southwest Florida. It is also a nationally accredited, non-profit, Medicare-certified organization and one of the nation’s only Life Plan providers with A or A+ ratings by Fitch and S&P. 

With three campuses in the heart of Naples, Moorings Park Community residents benefit from priceless views, amazing on-site amenities, and an innovative approach to health and wellness. Members have the luxury of lavish residences with unrivaled access to upscale and casual restaurants, comprehensive physician services, state-of-the art fitness centers and engaging social activities. “Everything we do is focused on delivering the Fountain of Youth to our members. We practice preventive wellness, rather than reactive healthcare. All in beautiful country club settings!” notes Tom Mann, Moorings Park Communities Vice President and successful aging specialist. Tom continues, “And not only do we take this approach for our residents, we also are deeply committed to our partners’ health.”

A True Great Place to Work

 It’s no surprise that Moorings Park Communities received the Great Place to Work certification, as employees are seen and referred to as partners, all working together to create world-renowned Life Plan Communities. The organization offers a culture that values each and every individual, and hires partners who live the values and embrace the mission of providing Simply the Best® communities and services for successful aging with professional and compassionate care to each person served.

Beyond having the stunning backdrops of each resort-style community as an everyday work setting, Moorings Park partners receive generous benefits, such as a retirement plan contribution match, rewards for leading a healthy lifestyle, childcare assistance, tuition reimbursement, paid health insurance, and more. Not to mention there are tremendous opportunities for growth; it doesn’t matter who you are or what your position is - you are heard and seen.
