Assistant Housing Administrator

"I love working with the seniors. When I’m old, I want to be helped out too. When I see how happy the residents are, I’m happy too. Even when it’s hard to communicate due to different languages, we’re still able to communicate. They’re always smiling and we’re always making sure they’re happy. Every morning, they greet me in the lobby. They’re my family now."

"Everyday there’s something good happening here and something new. I’ve met so many families and had the chance to help them. It’s a blessing to know that you got to help them and make sure that they have everything they need."

"Covia has definitely made an impact in my life because I’m held to a higher standard outside of working when interacting with people and tending to their needs. The standards and values this company holds are similar to mine and I love that I can incorporate my lifestyle in my work."

"I recently had a baby, and I was so grateful to be working for such a professional and supportive organization during this period of huge change in my life. I’ve truly never met a nicer group of people. Sometimes it feels like I’ve entered an alternate universe where everyone is kind and considerate. It’s also a really unique organization in terms of the breadth of services and impact it provides. I’m excited to be a part of it during this time of pivotal group."

"This job is really rewarding because when you’re really able to help those in need, it really makes a difference and an impact on both you and the resident. Each resident has their own individual needs and it’s my job to know that and help them."

"One thing Covia is built on is the family atmosphere. In order to make that work, it starts with respect for the people around you, your peers, the residents, etc. I love putting a smile on the residents faces and making an impact on the residents you built a relationship with."

This award is given by the Brandon Hall Group, an HCM (Human Capital Management) research and advisory services firm that provides insights around key performance areas, including Learning and Development, Talent Management, Talent Acquisition and HR/Workforce Management.

We made tremendous progress in catching up with the technology advances that have been driving the area of Human Resources for the past 10 years. With COVID, these technology solutions have proven to be vital and we find ourselves in a unique position - ahead of the curve as compared to other organizations our size. We are extremely excited and proud of our HR team for embracing how technology can streamline their everyday work so that they can provide a more strategic partnership to our workforce. Not only has our HR team adopted HR technologies, but they have been relentless in ensuring its’ adoption across the organization.
