       A Dedicated and Engaged Workforce
Acts places great importance on providing a positive, growth-oriented work environment, career development opportunities and a life/work balance that fosters strong physical, mental and spiritual health. The commitment by our staff is further evidenced in our retention rates, where our low employee turnover continues to be among the
best in the entire senior living industry.
In 2020, a total of 658 employees celebrated milestone anniversaries of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 30, 35 or 40 years with the Acts organization. A large percentage of our employees have been with the organization for many years, resulting in low turnover rates compared with the rest
of the industry.
  One important step taken to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion was the renaming of Plantation Estates, being sensitive to how that name is commonly understood and associated. We thank everyone who assisted in the selection and implementation of the new name, Matthews Glen.
  Driving Change Through
Meaningful Action
Several tragic events during the summer spotlighted the racial injustice and systemic inequality prevalent throughout our society. As an organization, we know that much of our strength comes from our diverse staff who represent many races, faiths, and traditions. We are committed to being a positive force in creating a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive future throughout our communities and all levels of our organization. Our newly formed Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Task Force continues to move forward important strategies that are fundamental to the Culture of Loving-Kindness, which is a core value of the Acts organization. These efforts include building out short and long-term strategic goals for D&I efforts within recruiting, hiring, promotions, training, and leadership development.
