We are delighted to share the exciting news that Casey’s Pond Senior Living Community in Steamboat Springs has received the prestigious World’s Best Culture Certification from Drive. This notable recognition underscores our dedication to fostering an exceptional workplace culture that aligns seamlessly with our core organizational values. It serves as a testament to the quality of our community.
Casey’s Pond underwent a rigorous evaluation process to achieve this esteemed certification, using the renowned Barrett Values Centre’s Culture Values Assessment, which sets key benchmarks for organizations across all industries. Drive, a leading consultancy firm specializing in senior living culture, is the foremost user of the Barrett Values Assessment in aging services. Their extensive 25-year database, comprising 4 million culture assessments from esteemed companies like Mastercard, Coca-Cola, Prudential, Wegmans, PWC, and Volvo, further reinforces the significance of this achievement.
Those who participated in the survey answered questions about their personal values, the current workplace culture, and what makes an ideal work environment. The overall score indicates the organization’s health and strength, reflecting the alignment between personal, current, and desired cultures while identifying any negative limiting values based on team member responses.

This distinction fills our team members and residents with pride and attracts individuals who share our mission and values to join our organization. Moreover, it grants us a competitive advantage in our marketing efforts.

This certification proudly proclaims to the world that Casey’s Pond is a truly exceptional place to live and work.
Denise Boudreau, Drive founder and president, emphasized that applying globally recognized culture measurements to aging services showcases that caring organization’s are so essential for senior living providers.
We are thrilled to share that Casey’s Pond’s organizational culture score was 71. This significantly surpasses the Global Average of 51, the Healthcare Average of 50, and Drive’s senior living communities average of 58.
However, we view earning this prestigious certification not as the culmination of our journey but as a stepping-stone toward continuous improvement.
