WALTHAM, Mass.—Benchmark Senior Living, a human connection company and leading provider of senior living services in the Northeast, today announced that it has been named one of the Top Places to Work for the 12th straight year in The Boston Globe’s associate-based survey. It is one of only four companies to have made the list every year it has been published, and is the only senior living organization on the list. Benchmark ranked number 11 in the “Largest Company” category.
“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the Globe year after year for our rich company culture, and being on this list every year since its inception is something we are extremely proud of,” says chairman and CEO Tom Grape. “We believe that human connection has the power to transform lives, and it’s our stellar associates who support our residents and their families with their compassionate care and vibrant community experiences through which everyone can grow and thrive. We are incredibly grateful for their service.”
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in Massachusetts as voted by the people who know them best, their associates. The survey measures associates’ opinions anonymously about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.
“The companies that make our list are much more than just decent employers,” says Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “They make work fun, and they make their people feel cared for. Some of them even help employees realize dreams that have nothing to do with their jobs.”
In addition to a comprehensive benefits package, Benchmark offers a wide variety of associate incentives and recognition programs designed to sustain its award-winning culture, including Gratitude Grams; Service Champion and Compassionate Caregiver awards; and the Benchmark One Company Fund, a non-profit organization providing funding to associates in need.
Throughout its 12 years on the Globe’s list, Benchmark has appeared with some of New England’s most prominent companies, including Accenture, Akamai, Bright Horizons, Comcast, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Massachusetts General Hospital, TripAdvisor and Tufts Health Plan.
Benchmark has been named to FORTUNE magazine and Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces for Aging Services list both years it has been published. In 2019, it moved up to the number 15 spot on the list of 50 large companies in the senior housing and care category, ranking number five among senior living companies with 50 or more communities. Throughout its nearly 23-year history, the company has been recognized as a top workplace by the Boston Business Journal, Connecticut Post, Hartford Courant and Hartford Business Journal, and as one of the healthiest employers by Boston Business Journal and Providence Business News.
