Our Leader Promise that our employees will have a voice is demonstrated in a number of ways in our organization. One that is definitely a favorite is our Better Way contest in which we ask our team members to submit ideas that could make life better for our residents or help to strengthen and improve us as an organization. Gathering ideas and working together to continuously improve our operations is what makes Venterra one of the best in the business and is in line with our Core Value of a “Never Ending Pursuit of Excellence!”
Each year, Better Way’s Regional and Grand Prize Winners are selected by their peers based on the number of “likes” their ideas receive. We ended with 97 winners in 2017 which was record breaking! Truly exceptional, but there can only be one $2,000 Grand Prize winner each year!
Congratulations to Ventana Apartments, Better Living Consultant, Evelyn Cardenas who was awarded this title during our 2018 Kick-Off Parties! Evelyn had a total of eight Better Way suggestions and two were marked as winning entries. Her suggestion of introducing an Inside Team Appreciation Week (modeled after the Maintenance Appreciation Week) garnered the most votes by her peers. This great suggestion made Evelyn $2000 richer!
