Hurricane Harvey and Our Venterra Family... Read More »
With Houston, Beaumont and areas stretching down to Corpus Christi having suffered incredible devastation from Hurricane Harvey our thoughts and prayers have been with everyone in the affected areas and will continue to be for the months to come as they embark on a lengthy recovery process. While our communities fared well overall, there are numerous Venterra employees whose personal lives have been affected and our thoughts go out to them as they work to recover from this devastating storm. Very fortunately, all of our employees are safe, but some will face significant challenges in the wake of this storm, and numerous Venterra team members expressed a desire to help. To support this interest, we have set up an online fundraising account directing funds to more than a dozen Venterra employees who have had their personal lives significantly impacted by the hurricane. Venterra will match all donations through this site from Venterra employees five to one. We’re looking forward to seeing all of our affected Houston employees back on their feet as soon as possible, and hope these funds can play a role in making that happen. We would like to take a moment to recognize and thank the amazing efforts that were made by Venterra employees to assist residents, co-workers and neighbors during this time. In many cases those employees living at or close to a property took it upon themselves to assist those in need at Venterra communities. We had many employees working late into the night to prevent flooding, traveling to properties during the storm to clear clogged drains, and helping to evacuate residents from flooding units. We saw teams gather and transport supplies to the Houston region and saw WOW stories from teams going above and beyond for new residents who had been forced to leave their homes. In addition, numerous employees were providing updates into our “command center” to provide eyes on the ground so we could coordinate necessary actions. In a way, it’s not surprising, given the quality of our people, but we still have incredible respect and appreciation for these acts of kindness and the efforts to look out for our communities. It is times like this that we get to find out what we are made off as individuals, and as a company of people. Harvey is an unprecedented disaster in the history of the U.S., and in the history of our company. We are very proud of the response of all our employees in the regions affected.
Josh's Promotion to Make Ready Technician... Read More »
Not long ago, Joshua was promoted from his role of Porter at St. Andrews into the role of Make Ready Technician at the community. He took a little bit of time out of his day to give us the scoop on the new role, his thoughts on Venterra, as well as his takeaways on being part of the St. Andrews Team. Check out what he had to say about his move to Make Ready Technician in the video below! Our Leader Promise to “strive to promote from within," definitely comes to mind when looking at the success that St. Andrews has had in moving employees up the ladder recently. Other St. Andrews employees to have stepped into a new role the past year include Patrick and Philip, and thanks to his hard work and dedication in the Make Ready Technician role, just last month Josh was promoted yet again! He now holds the title of Maintenance Technician/Assistant Maintenance Manager at the community. Congrats on the promotions, Josh! Way to go!

Football Season 2017: Fantasy Football & Fun Fridays!... Read More »
With football season 2017 officially underway, we've got a couple of Venterra traditions back in full swing, too! Before the season kicked off we announced the start of Venterra Fantasy Football 2017! Similar to past years, we're holding two different free formats through Yahoo Fantasy Sports and employees can participate in one or both to win cash prizes: Pick 'em League: Employees can earn money for correctly picking weekly winners, and for having the most right picks over the whole season. Survival League: Employees can choose the winner of one game each week, but can't pick the same team more than once during the season. We're looking forward to seeing the employees who come out on top during football season 2017 and giving out lots of fantasy football prizes, but, in the meantime, will be enjoying some Jersey Fun Fridays! In keeping with our Leader Promise to make time to have fun, employees have a blast showing their love for their favorite teams (football or otherwise) during Jersey Fun Fridays. Our first coincided with the season opener and, as you can see to the left, was enjoyed by folks across the portfolio! Be sure to let us know who you think the teams to beat are going to be this year in the comments below!
