Have you read about the Best of the Best Awards — an initiative spearheaded by Argentum? The awards recognize innovative new programs in senior living and you guessed it, the 2022 winners are in!

About Argentum Best of the Best Awards

Released in a recent edition of Argentum’s Senior Living Executive resource, the Best of the Best Awards recognize programs, products and services that are improving the future of senior living. More specifically, those that solve a particular challenge or advance excellence in the industry.

A total of six senior living organizations were recognized by Argentum this year, including Benchmark Senior Living and Senior Lifestyle.

Award winner: Benchmark Senior Living

Need inspiration for your onboarding department? Look no further! Benchmark Senior Living earned a place on the Best of the Best list for their Virtual General Orientation program, a hybrid learning model in which in-person instruction supplements online sessions. The program is offered weekly for new hires across the company.

According to Benchmark, a key benefit of the program is time savings. To accommodate new hires before, staff members often spent hours planning and delivering live programming, which took time away from other pressing initiatives. With the new-and-improved blend of virtual and in-person onboarding, Benchmark now saves over 500 hours of staff labor each week.

The program also helps Benchmark ensure their onboarding content is consistent across time and location, and gives new hires the opportunity to engage with staff from other communities in a virtual setting. Read more about Benchmark’s Virtual General Orientation program.

Award winner: Senior Lifestyle

In an effort to enhance diversity efforts, Senior Lifestyle launched their Better Together initiative — the program that earned their place on the Argentum Best of the Best list. Better Together includes educational programs that showcase diverse individuals, holidays and cultures each month within Senior Lifestyle communities.

And to create the themes for each month-long program, Senior Lifestyle brought together community leaders and residents for brainstorming sessions. This resulted in creative ideas like a monthly calendar equipped with resources, games and celebration ideas to accompany each theme.

At its core, Better Together creates a space in which people of different backgrounds feel represented. What better way to improve the community experience for Senior Lifestyle staff and residents? Read more on Senior Lifestyle’s launch of Better Together
