What is an Experience Leader?... Read More »
We get this question a lot at Venterra and rightfully so; we have t-shirts that identify us as Experience Leaders along with it being part of the official title for our Community and Maintenance Managers. We recently asked our managers to share with us what it means to be an Experience Leader. We were flooded with many great responses, and think that this one from Stephanie Burns, the Community Manager and Experience Leader at Estancia Apartment Homes sums it up best. “Being an Experience Leader means providing our residents and employees with a fun and rewarding way of living!” We wholeheartedly agree with Stephanie. She will receive $300 for her winning answer! Congrats, Stephanie!
What Are Your Clothes Saying About You?... Read More »
Regardless of the type of position you are in (or hope to be in!) there is always going to be a set standard for what clothes should be on your back while you're on the clock. With employment options ranging from lifeguard to CEO this standard can vary greatly, but it's critical that you know what the expectations are in your specific workplace so you can dress to impress while you're on the job hunt and after you land your new job! Below are some general guidelines on what should be hard passes when gearing up for the work day. These come courtesy of Derek Lennon at JobMonkey.com! Don’t wear anything that’s too casual. – Things like sweatpants, tank tops, or flip-flops are almost always a no-no in the workplace. Don’t wear revealing clothes. – People have a hard time respecting co-workers that show too much skin. Unless you work at the beach, keep yourself covered up. Don’t wear clothes that are dirty, filthy, wrinkled, or stinky. – If you’ve worn it recently, give it a good clean before wearing it again. Don’t wear anything offensive. – T-shirts are usually a bad idea, especially when they have rude slogans or inappropriate pictures. Don’t wear anything that makes it impossible to do your job. – Wear functional clothing that allows you to get your job done quickly. Don’t wear the same clothes you wore out last night. – From formal wear to disco clothes, change up your wardrobe before you head to the office. Don’t wear inappropriate body piercings. – In the professional work environment, keep the piercings to a minimum. Check out the full article on the topic and links to others on JobMonkey here!
2014: Another "Top Rated" Year for Venterra!... Read More »
ApartmentRatings.com recently published their list of the top 6% of properties across the Nation as ranked by the general public’s reviews. In order to qualify, properties had to meet the following criteria: - The property must have 10 or more total reviews (across all years) - The property must have received 5 or more reviews in 2014 - The property must have a recommended score of 50% or greater (as of the day the report was ran) For all of the properties who met the above criteria, they were then limited to the top 6% of all properties listed on Apartmentratings.com (which is almost every property in the US.) So what percentage of Venterra communities are Top Rated for 2014? 100% All communities that we owned and operated over 2014 made ApartmentRatings’ list of Top Rated apartment communities across the US for 2014! This is an improvement over the last 2 years from having 98% of our communities Top Rated! Even better - take a look at the minimum score criteria again. It’s 50%. Our current average score for the same properties is 81%; 31 points higher than the minimum score criteria. There’s a reason we continue to distance ourselves from our competitors. It’s our employees. We're so thankful for all they do to make Venterra what it is and for making a difference in our residents’ lives. Congratulations to everyone who helped make 2014 a Top Rated year!
