“The Service Leadership OASIS Best Practice Teams have been very successful in getting multiple levels of corporate-wide staff working together toward resident satisfaction."
     — Roberta Jacobsen, Senior VP, Operations, Front Porch Retirement Communities

"Some of the improvements and/or things implemented as a result of this initiative are heightened awareness of nonverbal communication, utilizing the buddy system to complete tasks, finding methods to carry on tasks more efficiently, and to ensure that there is follow-through."
     — Katherine Custodio, Activities Assistant, Villa Gardens

"Combines humor, experience, knowledge, insight, and input from participants to make a program for change and affirmation that is challenging but practical and possible."
     — Sister Paula David, Mission Services/Chaplaincy, Elder Care Alliance

"When we first partnered with CLS, we were not looking for a "flavor of the month" top-down customer service program. What is magical about this program is the sustainable and flexible process and how it both enveloped and infused all levels, especially the front-line of our Front Porch organization.
Moving into our seventh year, we continue to identify new leaders and have promoted 20-25% of our front-line staff STARs in each year of the program. Our own Front Porch University/Five STAR College has evolved from the first four years of the Service Excellence program and continues to enrich our Front Porch service excellence learning culture."
     — Lauren Moulton-Beaudry, Ed.D, Director of Ethics and Education, Front Porch
