Senior Living Community Realigns Compensation with Just a Few Clicks

Monarch Landing, managed by Life Care Services, is a senior living community that needed to quickly implement several new systems after a transition to new ownership in 2010. One of these changes was establishing a new way to determine and manage compensation at the community. PayScale’s cloud compensation solution was selected to guide Monarch through the process and remains an integral component in their overall human resources system. Today, Monarch Landing is confident about its ability to retain outstanding employees and is using PayScale to inform its compensation decisions. Looking ahead, the community is embarking on an expansion and plans to use PayScale as they hire an additional 150 employees.

Monarch Landing is a senior living community based outside of Chicago, in the city of Naperville, IL. The community is built on a scenic 80-acre campus and was recently named “one of America’s best places to live and retire.” Monarch Landing’s staff of 200 compassionate and dedicated employees play a vital role in making this desirable retirement community so exceptional. However, when the community experienced a sudden change of ownership in 2010, the new human resources director required critical compensation data to attract and retain the best talent. Discovering comparable compensation information proved to be challenging, since Monarch offered specific services for seniors and was located in a unique market.
