Our training and support mission is simple - to educate, support, motivate and retain the on-site employees who serve our
clients. Our employees enjoy what we believe is the most comprehensive training and support program in the industry.
Consistent communication between on-site employees and the regional headquarters makes the entire team function more
effectively, make fewer errors and respond to our clients faster and more thoroughly. Our national training director
implements a national standardization of skills incorporating the best training practices in our industry. By working
directly with each regional training director to design and create region specific guidelines, our training program
ensures that each employee has the appropriate level of training necessary to be successful in his/her position.
We conduct regularly scheduled meetings and seminars and also give our staff the flexibility to fulfill the day-to-day
needs of our clients' properties. Our personalized training programs allow us to quickly respond to changing market
conditions, as well as staff and owner concerns.

Our quality control procedures help maximize returns on each property
Our quality control specialists evaluate every Pinnacle-managed property on a frequent, but unannounced, schedule. The review
includes operational systems, including resident files, cash management, personnel/payroll, risk management, marketing and
resident retention, service requests and vacancy status. The reports our specialists send to our managers help them identify
and act upon any deficiencies and training needs as well as recognize the successes.
