NORWELL — The Cordwainer, a unique Memory Care Assisting Living residence, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 16th annual employee-based survey from The Boston Globe. Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.
“To be recognized like this by The Boston Globe based on employee feedback is a true honor. We will continue to remain committed to putting our people first in all that we do,” said Founder Tamilyn Liesenfeld.
The Cordwainer, developed by Anthemion Senior Lifestyles, opened in 2022 at 555 Cordwainer Drive. The community includes 54 suites for residents living with dementia and features unique and innovative programming, “The Learned Environment℠,” designed to stimulate the brain and foster mental activation through music, art, and foreign language exploration. The Cordwainer is also the first U.S. memory care community to incorporate the Tovertafel, an innovative light projection system created for seniors living with dementia that is proven to be beneficial for physical, cognitive, social, and sensory well-being.
As part of the Globe’s comprehensive process, more than 23 million surveys were collected from employees at more than 70,000 organizations, making the award the most accurate benchmark available.
The Globe award announcement follows other accolades The Cordwainer has received in 2023, including being named “Business of the Year” by the Norwell Chamber of Commerce and the “Star of Excellence” designation by South Shore Magazine.
