    Benton Village Senior Living Named One of the 2022 Best
    Workplaces for Aging Services™ by Great Place to Work® and 


    Stockbridge, GA – Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE have honored Benton Village
    Senior Living as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The National
    Award considered feedback representing 189, 159 employees working for Great Place
    to Work-Certified™ organizations in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the
    Aging Services industry.

    Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include
    all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Only 50
    companies make the list each year. Benton Village and Benton House Senior Living
    Communities took the No. 19 spot on the list.

    Michael Allard, CEO of the Benton Village and Benton House communities says, “We are excited
    and honored to be named one of the top 50 companies in the nation in the Aging Services
    category. This honor is validation that a sustained and focused plan of recognition, based on
    our organizational values, is attracting, and retaining the absolute best in our industry.
    It’s our 4th consecutive year certified as A Great Place to Work, and our second national win. It
    is especially gratifying to recognize our outstanding team this year of some much transition in
    the labor force. Our folks are absolute heroes in service.”

    Benton Village employs a number of unique approaches to showing appreciation. A highlight is
    the annual new car giveaway. Says Mike, “We offer a number of surprise gifts throughout the
    year to say thanks, but the new car giveaway is always a highlight and an emotional moment.”

    The Best Workplaces for Aging Services stand out for exceling in a competitive industry.
    “The value of creating great workplaces for all is a clear competitive edge in the Aging
    Services sector,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “When organizations
    like Benton Village treat their own people with care and respect, you can expect their
    staff to treat your loved ones with that same care.”

    “The effect of engaged employees has magnified in the aging sector, especially during
    the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, CEO of Activated Insights, the
    senior care company of Great Place to Work. “We have found that organizations that
    have maintained or increased employee engagement during this year’s challenges have
    been able to be more resilient, provide enhanced care, and perform better.”
    Mike summarizes, “It takes great people to provide great care. We are blessed with the
    best of the best. We look forward to building on our foundation in the coming year.”
