LITTLE ROCK, AR – Delta Dental of Arkansas, the largest provider of dental benefits in the state, has again been named one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The sixth annual program, created by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group, was designed to identify and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. Delta Dental of Arkansas has been among the honorees each of the program’s 6 years.
Delta Dental of Arkansas is committed to providing an outstanding employee experience. Beyond a generous benefits package, the company offers a comprehensive leadership development program, flexible scheduling to accommodate the needs of family, monthly company-wide employee luncheons, and hosts a bi-monthly Employee Steering Committee where each department is represented and meets with top executives to hear employees’ suggestions.
“We’re honored to win this award, especially because so much is determined by employee responses,” said Kelly Carney, vice president of human resources at Delta Dental of Arkansas. “The positive feedback we receive through the survey is consistent with how we want employees to view us and how we want to be viewed in our community and by our customers. We are gratified that we have been recognized six years in a row.”
Companies from across the state entered a two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part, weighted more heavily, consisted of an employee survey to measure employees’ satisfaction with their experience.
