A Birmingham-based senior living company will soon implement a COVID-19 vaccination incentive program that could eventually earn its employees about $1.1 million.
Atlas Senior Living, which owns and manages communities in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee, will offer the incentive to every full-time and part-time employee.
“We’re putting our money where our mouth is,” says Scott Goldberg, president and co-CEO of Atlas. “The decision to initiate this program goes beyond the senior living and health care industries. This is a humanitarian decision. We trust the modern technology, the trials the vaccine went through and the science out there. Now that it is available, we feel a civic duty to our employees to carry this out and offer this program to them. When we say residents’ and associates’ safety are our utmost priority, we put action behind those words.”
Atlas owns and/or operates 27 retirement communities, with three more planned in 2021. In Alabama, those properties are Angels for the Elderly, Montgomery; Kelley Place and Madison Heights Enterprise, Enterprise; Legacy Ridge Trussville, Trussville, and Madison at the Range, Madison.
