THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Great Place to Work® Institute has certified the University Village Thousand Oaks life plan retirement community in Thousand Oaks, California, as a Great Place to Work.

The Great Place to Work Institute is a global authority on high-performance workplace cultures. The institute provides the benchmarks, framework and expertise needed to recognize outstanding work environments and produces the annual “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for Fortune magazine.

Certification for University Village included a survey of 165 employees from all departments, job functions and levels of experience. The survey was conducted in April during the COVID-19 pandemic and measured more than 60 elements of employees’ experience on the job.
