This helps us to create the highly rated real estate company you see today.
Great Place to Work Institute® & FORTUNE©
Best Workplaces in Real Estate
Venterra has been named one of the Great Place to Work® Institute‘s 2022 Best Workplaces in Real Estate, as published by FORTUNE©. We were ranked #12 based on an analysis of survey responses from more than 23,000 team members from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the real estate industry. Our annual Great Place to Work survey showed that 92% of Venterra colleagues feel Venterra is a great place to work. A number 35% higher than the average U.S. company, this positive feedback provided Venterra the opportunity to be considered for this selective recognition.
100 Best Medium Workplaces
We are proud that Venterra has received the Great Place to Work® Institute Award, honoring the Best Medium Workplaces in 2021! We are #29 in the medium company category (all participating U.S. companies between 100 and 999 employees.) This was the sixth year in a row that Venterra won this prestigious accolade. Venterra received this great recognition based on the feedback employees provided in our 12th Annual Employee Satisfaction Survey, in which 92% of responding employees said Venterra is a great workplace, resulting in us becoming “Certified” by Great Place to Work® Institute and eligible to be a winner of the award. Given the evaluation for the list is based mostly on the Employee Survey, it is a true reflection of our employees’ opinions and feelings about working for Venterra, and is an amazing testament to the positive work environment, leadership and values that we’ve strived to create.

We’ve been recognized as a 2020 Best Workplace for Women by the Great Place to Work® Institute!

Best Workplaces for Diversity
Venterra is honored to have been selected as a winner of the 2018 Great Place to Work® Institute Award honoring the Best Workplaces for Diversity in 2018. In addition to the degree of representation in the organization, the recognition was based on survey feedback related to the experiences of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, employees who are Boomers or older, and people who have disabilities compared to that of their colleagues with a focus on the trust, pride, and camaraderie experienced in their workplace.

Best Workplaces for Inclusion
Our Canada team member’s second Great Place to Work® survey results placed Venterra on Great Place to Work® Canada‘s 2022 Best Workplaces for Inclusion list! Earning the designation requires “Certified” status in the past year and and at least 90% of team members must agree they are treated fairly regardless of personal characteristics (such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation). Great Place to Work determined the BEST based on employee responses to inclusion-related Trust Index statements.
Best Workplaces for Today’s Youth
Results from our Canada team member’s first Great Place to Work® survey earned the office a spot on the 2022 Best Workplaces for Today’s Youth, by Great Place to Work Canada! In addition to survey strong enough to met “Certified” status and having 30% of the team to fall into the Millennial or younger demographic, the recognition required a minimum of a 90% positive response to the statement “I am treated fairly regardless of my age.” In the case of Venterra’s Canadian team members, a full 96% of participating team members agreed with the statement.See More
Best Places to Work
We’re among the winners of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2022! For a fourth time and a second year in a row, we’ve been recognized in the small and medium company category. Venterra was the only property management company to earn this recognition in either size category in 2022. Winning companies are evaluated based on the quality, consistency, and quantity of employee reviews among a number of other factors.
Unlike other awards, there is no self-nomination or application process, instead, it’s entirely based on the feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor. Importantly, this means that every US company with a presence on the site is considered for this accolade which makes the recognition so meaningful.
