Each day, Asbury’s Mission plays out in thousands of interactions between our associates and the people they serve. New residents routinely point to the warmth and family feel of our communities as a key reason they chose us. This is not an accident.
We are committed to being the employer of choice in each of our markets, building programs and procedures that foster accountability, build trust, and attract those seeking a higher purpose.
In Asbury’s 2018 Great Place to Work survey, 88 percent of respondents answered positively to the statement: "my work has special meaning.”
It is not uncommon to find several generations of the same family working for Asbury. We provide the benefits, culture, and development to attract and retain top talent. Read more about our Great Place to Work-certified organization below.
Our commitment to being an accountable, innovative, and transparent organization is apparent the moment you step into the new Asbury Support & Collaboration Center. Designed to encourage face-to-face interactions with open workspaces and plenty of tech-enabled meeting rooms, ASCC sets the tone for our workforce philosophy.
For the second year in a row, Asbury Communities has earned Great Place to Work certification, an honor based on associate feedback related to how highly they trust the organization to create a best-in-class workplace and honor Asbury's Mission.
In 2019, more than 86 percent of our associates completed the Great Place to Work survey. Of those, 88 percent said their work has special meaning and 87 percent said they felt good about how their work contributed to the community. Read more highlights of the survey in Asbury's Great Place to Work profile.
In 2017, Asbury rolled out Red e App, a cell phone-based platform that revolutionized our ability to communicate with the majority of our associates who do not have Asbury email or are not routinely in front of their computers.
Since then, more than 60 percent of our associates have downloaded the app and have sent more than 350,000 secure, work-related messages. Readership of app messages is 20 percent higher than those of email - and have significantly increased our response rate in our annual associate survey.
Held several times each year, Leadership Asbury gathers new leaders from across the system to learn more about Asbury and the support services it provides, to meet the senior leadership team and discuss our organizational goals.
Asbury’s Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is an annual, two-day, system-wide retreat for top leaders and is an important component of our workforce development strategy. LDI creates alignment among Asbury’s leaders, encourages networking, recognizes outstanding achievements through our Azzy Awards program and the Edwin C. Thomas III Award, and continues our development as leaders.
