One Eighty is a collection of amazing individuals who are driven to make each moment meaningful. Every person here is a creator and contributor, and we value not only the work they do, but also the spirit in which they do it.
The business of balance
Because it’s the people who make One Eighty so special, we at One Eighty make sure our people have what they need to be fulfilled, motivated, and empowered to do great things. How? A guiding philosophy we call our “three-thirds lifestyle.” Essentially, this means we give equal weight to three fundamental aspects of living: family, philanthropy, and work.
At One Eighty, we put family first. Whether it’s coaching a kid’s soccer game, helping an aging parent with appointments, or anything in between, we make sure our employees can be there for their families when they need to. Period.
We also consider the wider world as our global family, that is equally deserving of our energy and attention, so we encourage our employees to spend time giving back. Whether through volunteering or financial support, we make philanthropy a fun and meaningful part of our lives.
Of course, One Eighty is a family unto itself. We work hard, and often play harder, always challenging each other to be our best selves, deliver exceptional results, and have loads of fun in the process. Greater than the sum of our parts, the One Eighty family is truly extraordinary.
We put our money where our mouth is—from the C-suite to the service staff, we know that investing in every employee’s balance and well being is what creates the kind of places and experiences our customers love, and ultimately drives our business success.
Everyone at One Eighty goes above and beyond to delight our customers, and model the merits of the "three-thirds lifestyle." And because some of them shine so brightly, we just have to share.
Julie Tastad is an experienced and valued team member, starting with us in August of 1992. For Julie, every day has brought a unique learning experience and she has become passionate about advocating for people who have cognitive impairment and dementia. On a personal note, Julie enjoys spending time with her husband, counting her FitBit steps, and spending time with people who make her laugh.
I enjoy having the opportunity to impact what I want for those whom I love – and for myself – as we grow older; and changing the paradigm of “what is” in “seniors” living.
As one of our newest members, Abdul’s story is one worth remembering. After leaving a refugee camp in Somalia, he came to the States without being able to speak English. His wife and four kids were his motivation to learn and get a job, while his positive attitude got him in the door. Fast forward to today, where he assists every person who walks through our doors as our Corporate Lobby Host.
I am humbled to be part of an organization that puts people first. What make us different, is the way we truly live and breathe our values—I’ve never been part of something more rewarding.
Ryan joined One Eighty in 2000 and has been a crucial part of bringing the Three-Thirds Lifestyle to where it is today. With a wife, two teenage boys, and a love for the Seahawks, Ryan still makes time to volunteer and be a part of various boards around the Seattle area.
I love our values and the fact that we are about doing the right thing. Making a positive impact on lives and the balanced life style. And being able to work with people who are passionate about what they’re doing.
