Strong Survey Results Lead to National ‘Great Place to Work’ Designation
Benchmark recently received certification as a Great Place to Work and special distinction as a Certified Age Friendly Employer for 2018.
The Great Place to Work honor followed strong participation and results from Benchmark’s annual associate survey. Nearly 80% of our amazing associates throughout our communities and the home office completed the survey!
As a result of this certification by the Great Place to Work Institute, Benchmark also qualifies for consideration in the first Fortune Magazine Great Places to Work in Aging Services list. The list will be announced later this year. Great Place to Work is the global authority on building, sustaining and recognizing high-trust, high-performing workplace cultures.
“We are proud to be recognized on such an exclusive list,” says Veronica Barber, Senior Vice President of Human Capital. “Thank you to our associates for participating in the Great Place to Work survey and providing feedback to help us become an even better place to work! This public recognition also helps us attract associates who live our values and want to be a part of something really special.”
Benchmark earned the age friendly certification from RetirementJobs.com due to our commitment to hiring workers over age 50. Criteria includes a thorough evaluation of our response to Certification Evaluation Standards, a review of publicly available information and comparison with standards for policies and practices within general commerce and the health care industry.
Benchmark is only the fifth Massachusetts-based company to receive this certification from RetirementJobs.com, joining Fidelity Investments, Fresenius Medical Care North America, Massachusetts General Hospital and Staples.
“It’s an incredible honor to achieve certification from these two highly respected organizations,” says Chairman and CEO Tom Grape, “and it’s one more example of how we strive to Be the Benchmark in all we do – and it’s getting noticed!”
Congratulations and thank you, Benchmark associates! Your participation and commitment helped us achieve this special recognition.
