Benchmark Senior Living, the largest senior housing provider in New England, today announced it has been selected as one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts for the 16th straight year following an employee-based survey. Benchmark is the only “largest employer” (over 1,000 employees) to make the annual list every year it’s been given.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state as voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. To create the list, more than 137,000 employees at 347 Massachusetts organizations were surveyed, measuring opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits and engagement.

“Our associates are the lifeblood of Benchmark. Their commitment to transforming the lives of our residents and their families, as well as each other, is truly inspiring. Benchmark is dedicated to ensuring that every associate enjoys a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, valued, and supported,” said Tom Grape, founder, president and CEO of Benchmark. “I’m incredibly proud that our associates agree that, together, we have made Benchmark an exceptional place to work.”

Benchmark appears on the 2023 list, which was initially published on November 29, with some of New England’s most respected companies. Dell Technologies, Bright Horizons, MassMutual and Sun Life are just some of the other organizations selected to appear on the “largest employer” list.

“The best employers are always striving to put their people first, whether they’re honoring small individual accomplishments or adjusting company-wide policies to become more inclusive,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.

In addition to The Globe list, The Great Place to Work Institute certified Benchmark for six straight years, and the company recently earned a place on FORTUNE’s 2023 50 Best Workplaces in Aging Services.

In addition to a comprehensive employee benefits package, Benchmark offers a wide variety of educational programs, including Benchmark University, associate incentives and support programs like the Benchmark One Company Fund and recognition and inclusion programs designed to sustain its award-winning culture of caring.
