Announcing the 2023 Workplace of the Year Award winner, Creekside Landing (Kaigo Senior Living)

Every year, BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) and EngAge BC are proud to celebrate the exceptional passion and commitment of those who provide the best quality of care for B.C. seniors at the 10th Annual BC Care Awards. This year, the Association introduced the Workplace of the Year Award category, which recognizes an active member who exemplifies staff engagement, recognition, and a significant change in workplace culture.

The Association is pleased to present the inaugural Workplace of the Year Award to Creekside Landing (Kaigo Senior Living), a community of care in Vernon, B.C.

In early 2023, Creekside Landing committed to embedding the organization’s values of respect, teamwork, excellence, autonomy, support, dedication, and integrity into practice. To attain this objective, Creekside launched several initiatives with a shared goal of improving workplace culture. These initiatives included a one-year Leadership Academy, emphasizing psychological safety and the inclusion of employees as part of their leadership approach, and the implementation of a 90-minute training program titled “Respect in the Workplace,” extending this opportunity to all staff members to establish a work environment that upholds human rights and personal dignity.

Other initiatives included enhancing management’s open-door policy by increasing their presence in resident neighborhoods, improving team morale through increased celebrations, and collaborating with the organization’s CPHR certified Human Resources Manager and the HR Generalist to implement recruitment strategies that embed the site’s workplace culture from the initial contact with prospective employees.

Creekside Landing has strategically invested in employee development, enhanced recognition programs, and new approaches to embed its Mission, Vision, and Values into the workplace culture. The Association applauds them for fostering an environment that is positive, supportive, and thriving, where each individual feels valued.
