It’s even more than a career. Working for Carlton feels like a purpose to me, and I am proud to come to work each day for such a great company.”
The Great Place to Work® certification process involves an anonymous survey conducted among employees to gather feedback on their experiences, job satisfaction, and perceptions of the workplace.
The survey results are analyzed to evaluate trust, camaraderie, and pride levels within the organization. If the company meets the criteria, it earns the certification, acknowledging its commitment to creating a positive work environment.

Moreover, 87% of employees expressed satisfaction with the training and development opportunities offered, reflecting Carlton Senior Living’s commitment to promoting professional growth and advancement.

Carlton’s remarkable employee longevity demonstrates the supportive culture that defines the company.
