A workplace that really stands out from the crowd

When you start your workday, do you want to walk through the doors and enter an environment where talents are nurtured, passions are pursued, and possibilities abound? In Mather’s newest venture in Tysons, Virginia, all of this is a part of an award-winning culture within their luxury community called The Mather.

The highest level of hospitality imbues The Mather’s elegant amenity spaces, thoughtfully curated food and beverage offerings, and innovative model of next-level service.

A Life Plan Community for those 62 and better, The Mather stands ready to begin welcoming residents in early 2024, and is well underway with recruiting top talent who share a passion for creating an atmosphere that transcends the ordinary. That stems from the unique values of its parent organization — inclusive, resilient, bold, and impactful — and its vision to change the way society views aging. Mather, an 80+ year-old not-for-profit organization, has a history of retaining dedicated team members for years, by helping them learn new skills, develop their careers, and eliminate barriers to personal happiness and fulfillment.

“My own job search was focused on a position where I could be exposed to different challenges as part of a forward-thinking and passionate group of professionals,” says Okyay Nalcaoglu, who joined The Mather in October 2023 as director of accounting. “I was seeking an employer with a futuristic vision that allows me to explore new initiatives and solutions. By the end of my first interview, it was clear to me that The Mather offers that autonomy and flexibility, within a strong and supportive framework.”

Raj Radke, vice president and general manager of The Mather, explains, “Our mission of creating Ways to Age Well extends to all team members. We support their personal well-being with a positive and supportive culture, valuable on-the-job perks, opportunities to learn and advance, and, of course, a competitive benefits package.” Highlights of that benefits package include:

  • a generous paid time off program
  • excellent medical and dental benefits
  • tuition reimbursement
  • and even a yearly reimbursement for self-care items and experiences

Benefits commence on the first of the month following 30 days of employment. On-site perks include complimentary use of the community’s fitness center and pool, free parking, and a free meal.

Add to those benefits the pleasure of working in a beautiful setting — The Mather has been recognized with several design awards even before opening its doors, including the 2023 Grand Aurora Award for Best On the Boards Community and Award of Merit top honors in the 2023 Gold Nugget Awards competition for Best Senior Housing Community — On the Boards, which honors architectural design and planning excellence.

Mather, with three other senior living communities in Illinois and Arizona, has a growing list of workplace and wellness awards, including being certified as a Great Place to Work, and receiving a Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness Award from the National Association for Business Resources for five years in a row, for promoting employee well-being, worksite health, and wellness.

Located on Westpark Drive near Tysons Galleria, The Mather offers luxury of a different kind. Apartment homes ranging in size up to 3,300 square feet are equipped with innovative smart-home technology; amenity-rich community spaces include a fitness center featuring an exercise studio and large indoor pool; multiple restaurants, a bar, outdoor event terraces with catering opportunities; a spa offering full services — including a Himalayan salt wall; and three acres of green space. Services include reception and concierge services, valet parking, shuttle and driver services, resident engagement and programming, housekeeping, and maintenance.

The Mather is hiring now for an array of positions to provide hospitality and exceptional service in these areas; it ultimately will have a total of more than 100 full- and part-time team members — all focused on creating unique opportunities and meaningful moments for residents, colleagues, and guests.

“We’re seeking team members from high-end hotels and resorts who share our dedication to making a difference and creating unique luxury experiences,” says Raj. “We are building a team that will push the envelope in curating elevated and enhanced engagements that embrace a vibrant culture for residents and team members alike.”
