Seasons Celebrates Its Terrific Team Members 

Recognition makes employees feel valued and celebrates how they contribute to the company’s success. This is particularly key as organizations grow, supporting staff as they develop a sense of security in their role and motivating them to produce outstanding results. When employees are rewarded for their efforts, they feel pride and are willing to work just as hard on their next project. Recognition connects people to their organization, elevates performance, and increases the likelihood of retention. 

Seasons Retirement Communities, established in 2009, has grown an impressive three times its original size with 21 locations across Ontario and Alberta, employing over 1,700 people! Their management team has extensive experience in the senior housing sector and has developed a culture dedicated to providing residents with superior care and customer service. “We are proud of our well-developed track record. This would not be possible without our dedicated team members, enthusiastic about working with seniors and demonstrating their commitment to great customer service and care daily,” shares Seasons CEO Mike Lavallée. 

Seasons is more than just a job, from contests to conferences, celebrations, and corporate programs. They’re a team of professionals who love enjoying experiences together in a family-like setting. This is also evident when their retirement homes host four weeks of fun for employee appreciation with exciting activities and events. Seasons’ Senior Team Leaders pick themes each week with multiple celebration options. Every site selects based on what resonates with their teams and ensures the days of the week of their celebrations happen so that most staff can participate. 

Below are three key benefits of employee appreciation: 

Recognized Employees are Happy Employees

They say happy employees are, on average, 12 percent more productive than their less-happy counterparts. A positive office atmosphere also translates into a more peaceful home life for staff. When you show your employees that you see and appreciate their efforts – and take the time to demonstrate how much of a measurable impact they’re having on your organization – those employees feel good about what they do. They take those feelings home with them. 

Appreciative Leaders are Appreciated Leaders

Trusting one another at work is a crucial component. For many companies, building a solid foundation of appreciation allows this trust to thrive, and thanking your employees fosters this atmosphere. When employees feel their efforts are noticed by leadership, they feel a deeper connection to them. “It’s just a really great feeling when management appreciates your hard work. They are always encouraging me and building me up to be successful,” explains Seasons team member Lisa Britenbaugh. 

Employee Recognition Equals Retention

Welcoming a new hire costs a company financially and dedicates the time and resources to ensuring they are appropriately trained. As a result, you want to have the right person for the role and that they stay invested in the organization and do not compromise on productivity. When asked why they switched careers, many employees said they felt either a lack of autonomy or underappreciated. With some recognition, you can reverse these trends and keep your talent around for much longer. 

Seasons team members make a difference in its residents’ lives through meaningful connections and creating ‘Wow Moments’ that matter. The company supports, encourages, and celebrates these efforts because they positively impact residents and team members.
