Our Workplace Culture

Customer First. Empowerment. Opportunities

The culture in our workplace is a reflection of our core values and the way we work and lead. The way we work and lead at Morningstar Living can be described by this acronym…C E O, and that doesn’t stand for Chief Executive Officer…it is the code for our workplace culture.

Why Team Members Work Here

“Working here is so different from other healthcare organizations I've worked with. The environment is a beautiful home environment... not clinical at all. And I love the fact that I see the same residents every day, because they live here. That enables me to get to know the residents that I'm caring for, so I can give them the best care possible.”

Wellness Assessments & Programs

Your health is important to us.

We want team members to be and stay healthy. For this reason we provide on-going health and wellness education and information, as well as encourage team members to utilize the fitness facilities and nutrition programs at our communities.

Interactive Health

We want team members to be and stay healthy. For this reason we’ve put an interactive, preventative health program into place for all Morningstar Living team members. Through online assessments, education, presentations and information, team members are empowered to adopt new habits to improve their health.

MorWell

To further promote an emphasis on team member health and wellness, we’ve created an internal rewards program (called MorWell) to reward team members for engaging in healthy activities that lead to good health and wellness.

Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Quality of Life activities are developed and assigned a credit value. Credits are earned as team members complete specific activities to win prizes.

Assistance for Challenges & Needs

Life brings with it unexpected emergencies. At any time a team member can have an emergency…a health event, a physical disaster at home, etc. These kinds of emergencies create stress and mental anguish which threaten our health and well-being. Our organization provides resources to help team members through these tough times.

Spiritual Services

We’re one of the few business operations that has the good fortune of having our own spiritual advisor as a team member. Reverend Otto Dreydoppel is a full-time chaplain at Morningstar Living. And because we believe spiritual health is foundational to physical health and well-being, Chaplain Otto is a spiritual resource and advisor for every team member who works at Morningstar Living.

Wellness Amenities

Onsite Walking Trails

Working at an organization that builds lifestyle campuses for retirees gives you an added benefit…you have access to excellent outdoor amenities to walk, read and take in the beautiful natural environments that have been preserved and enhanced with walking trails, fountains and patios.

Onsite Fitness Center

A state-of-the-art fitness center is available to team members. The center is equipped with weight equipment, chest and leg presses, ellipticals, treadmills and stationery and spinning bikes. Aerobic and spin classes are also offered.

Onsite Café for Meals

The Good Spirit Café is open to employees for breakfast, lunch and dinner and anytime snacks. The menu features a large selection of healthy, made-to-order items, home-made soups, salads and hot-specialized entrees. Perfect for your meal break or “take home” enough for the whole family.

Onsite General Store

The Good Spirit General Store is the place where you can purchase cards, snacks, health and beauty supplies, slippers, jewelry, bags and gift items. Merchandise changes often throughout the year to include seasonal and holiday gifts and decorations. Team members even get a discount!
