“Our goal is not only to meet the needs of our community members but to provide them with the best staff available,” says Vessels.

Award winner

Recently, Windsor Run was named as a 2017 Best Place to Work by the Charlotte Business Journal.

According to the journal, the “Best Places to Work Awards is a high-energy event honoring outstanding companies whose benefits, policies, and practices are among the area’s best. All the honorees have qualified by scoring at or above a national average.”

Nominations were accepted by the Charlotte Business Journal last summer.  Following the application process, a required number of employees at each company completed a survey on topics that included workplace trust, management experience, and goal development.  Quantum Workplace, a research partner of the Charlotte Business Journal, graded the surveys and sent the results back to the news outlet.

“The award received by Windsor Run in the Best Places to Work program is a testament to the enthusiasm and dedication displayed by our talented team in preparing for our opening next spring,” says Windsor Run Executive Director George Comfort. “We are proud to be an employer of choice in the Charlotte area. One of our mantras is ‘come grow with us.’  From experience, we can attest that serving our new residents will be a rewarding experience.”
