Agemark Senior Living recently recognized six Agemark Heroes. The Hero award is presented annually to company employees who consistently go above and beyond in their role and embody Agemark’s four core values: Professionalism, Integrity, Commitment and Compassion.

Erika Mendez, Wellness Assistant, TreVista of Antioch, CA

Marty Hug, Agemark COO says, “We know that the most valuable part of our company is not our assets, it’s our people. We are confident our employees are truly the best in the industry. Each and every day, they are tasked with living our values and principles. Agemark employees understand that the most important thing they can do at work is not to check off a list of tasks, it is to change someone’s life. The 2019 Hero Award winners represent nearly 900 employees who share their same commitment.” 

Hero nominations are taken throughout the year and are submitted by residents, families and fellow employees. The director of each residence compiles the top three nominees, who are named Champions and are awarded $100. One champion is chosen to move forward as the community’s Hero nominee. Heroes are awarded $1000 and are invited on a complimentary trip to the annual corporate conference, where they spend two days being treated to fun activities and are recognized at the company awards banquet.
