Bellevue-based Aegis to reward employees with $65,000 in prizes

This Wednesday, one lucky employee with Aegis Living will walk away with a $50,000 grand prize, while 15 other employees will win $1,000 each. It’s part of Aegis Living’s program to reward loyalty and hard work through unique perks. For the past three years, Aegis Living has held biannual Dream Big employee lotteries, handing out tens of thousands of dollars in cash and all-expense paid vacations.

“Our employees are the heart of our business,” Founder and CEO Dwayne Clark said. “Aegis Living just celebrated 20 years and it’s because of our amazing employees, their dedication and loyalty that we have remained a strong leader in assisted living for two decades. The Dream Big Lottery is a fun and exciting way to say thank you, and it can have a real impact on an employee’s life.”

Aegis Living employees who have been employed with the company for a full three years are eligible for the lottery. The longer the employee has worked for Aegis Living, the more entries they receive.

Aegis Living invites the community to watch this year’s party. The Dream Big Lottery will be held at the new Aegis Living Home Office in Bellevue, at 2 p.m. Sept. 13. The winners will be announced during a live stream event, which can be watched here.

The Dream Big Lottery is just one way Aegis Living recognizes employees. Last month, an employee in Kirkland won a brand new car at the company’s 20th Anniversary celebration.

The Aegis Living annual employee meeting is a three-day celebration of human spirit and self- improvement, the Potato Soup Foundation helps employees with emergencies and the Winterfest celebration gives staff new warm coats and toys for the kids.

“We strive to be the best company, to attract and retain the best employees,” Clark said. “We are committed to building employee satisfaction that is unique in the senior housing industry, because at the end of the day, it is our precious residents who reap the benefits.”

Clark adds, “We’re honored that unique job perks like this are one reason why Glassdoor, the nation’s online employee review site named Aegis Living one of 2017’s Top 50 Best Places to Work” (out of 600,000 businesses nationwide).

Aegis Living is a national leader in assisted living and memory care. The privately-held company founded in 1997 is headquartered in Bellevue and operates 28 communities in Washington, California and Nevada. Follow the company on Twitter @aegisliving and Facebook at or visit the company website at
