Ventas is made up of a talented group of results-driven, experienced and dedicated professionals with an unwavering commitment to integrity, high-performance, adaptability and collaboration. Our organization and our stakeholders are stronger and more effective when we intentionally develop and recruit a diverse workforce and Board of Directors. For example, our employee mix by gender is balanced at 48% female to 52% male and our Board is gender diverse with 30% women.*
Respect for human rights is at the core of our social responsibility, and we take action to report any conduct inconsistent with our values, our Global Code of Ethics & Business Conduct, or the law. As an equal opportunity employer, we value the diversity of the unique individuals who make up our team and do not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s race, sex, age, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, ancestry, genetic information, military service, creed, pregnancy, marital status, citizenship, gender identity, gender expression or any other status protected by applicable law.
We believe that employee feedback is critical to our organization’s growth and progress. Each year, we invite employees to take part in an annual employee satisfaction survey to help identify specific areas of improvement with more than 90% of our employees participating.*
Our employee networks are designed to bring like-minded employees together to build a culture dedicated to enhancing the success and engagement of employees through professional development, career management, cross-departmental collaboration and mentoring opportunities. Open to all professionals at Ventas, these groups include:
- Womens Network: a community dedicated to the success and engagement of women at Ventas through professional development, career management and mentoring
- Diversity Network: a community that helps shape and enhance our ability to attract and retain diverse professionals and engage other employees through increased cultural understanding across topics such as ethnicity and gender
- Young Professionals: a community that serves to increase the development of young professionals through informal mentoring, social activities and training opportunities
