Take a look at just a few of our many team celebrations. At Discovery Senior Living, we believe in creating a culture of excellence. Our team members are our greatest asset, and their dedication to our residents is celebrated at every opportunity. Find out what makes being part of the Discovery family so special!
Celebration of the Stars
Picture this, if you can: One day, and one special event so big that it can reach almost 6,000 team members at Discovery Senior Living communities across the nation! That’s just what we did on Friday, June 4 as part of our first-ever Celebration of the Stars.
Summer 2021 “Sale-a-bration” Event
There was plenty of reason to celebrate after one of our Florida regional sales teams racked up 116 move-ins in just one month! It was a record-breaking month (and quarter) for that region’s sales team, which we treated to a hard-earned, two-night celebration.
The festivities began with a dinner and commemoration ceremony, and culminated on night two with “A Dance for the Ages,” a special, private event held at the Hilton Naples featuring food, music and dancing and the joy and satisfaction of coming together as a team to celebrate this amazing achievement.
Parking Lot Party
It took some ingenuity and innovation, but COVID and all, we found a way to safely gather and have some Friday afternoon fun together!
This 2020 Parking Lot Party was just one way the company gave back to Team Members, who enjoyed food and drinks (including free beer!), carnival-style games, and a chance to relax and cut loose during what was a year like no other!
Corporate Home Office Ribbon Cutting
Our company’s rapid growth has put us firmly at the forefront of the senior living space, and in mid-2020, we proudly settled into a cutting-edge corporate headquarters.
Modeled after some of those jaw-dropping headquarters of Silicon Valley’s tech titans, it’s an awesome thrill to call this place our company’s new home. So most heartfelt thanks to our executive leadership and everyone who had a hand in making this remarkable vision a reality, and here’s to a triumphant future in our new headquarters!
Sarasota Bay Groundbreaking
Discovery Senior Living held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, officially commencing construction of a state-of-the-art Active Independent Living community at Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay.
Company executives, developers, and invited guests including approximately 40 members of the Bradenton and Sarasota business communities were in attendance. The new, resort-style community will further complement Discovery Village’s award-winning Assisted Living and SHINE® Memory Care offerings, resulting in a total of 324 apartment homes, which create a full range of available lifestyle options on one campus to better meet the changing needs of seniors through all stages of retirement.
The Active Independent Living community, expected to open in Fall 2021, is being built at 1414 69th Ave. W in Bradenton.
Incredible feats of strength and agility, unbelievable acts of athleticism, and plenty of hidden talents are on display annually during our Office Olympics event.
Here, Team Members cross department lines to join forces with friends and colleagues from all over the Discovery organization, competing in fun events like balloon volleyball, beer pong, flatbed cart racing and so much more!
Corporate Holiday Party
Team Members gather to bask in the glitz, glamour and good cheer of the holiday season each year at our company-sponsored holiday party.
This most recent (pre-COVID) edition was held at the beautiful Hyatt Coconut Point, which is located on the sun-splashed shorelines of our native Bonita Springs, Florida.
Holiday Home Office Decorating Contest
Our seasonal and holiday design contests help transform our home office, all while giving Team Members a forum to show off their creativity, imagination, or lifetime membership in the “Coffee Is Life” club, like veteran Team Member Theresa did here.
Check out the realism and attention to detail…no surprise that she’s one of our talented graphic artists, now is it?
Pillars of Excellence
Held annually, our Pillars of Excellence Awards recognize exemplary community performance, sales leadership, resident service, nursing and personal care, culinary quality and creativity.
In 2019, winners were selected among more than 4,800 team members representing 61 communities across 14 states and 6 geographic regions. Proud Discovery Senior Living Team Members share honors and a photo opportunity at the annual Pillars of Excellence Awards, which honor outstanding performance across several broad industry categories.
Halloween Costume Contest
Sure, the candy is nice too, but Halloween in our office is a time for fun and friendly competition!
Each year, Team Members go all out to win the coveted top prizes for best costume and cube/office design. On that day, there’s no telling what you’ll encounter around here! Everything from dinosaurs and zombies to celebrities and even a most elegant jellyfish, as presented here by our Senior Designer, Melanie.
