 Pittston, PA - December 21, 2011 - Benco Dental was named the 13th Best Place to Work in Pennsylvania. This marks Benco Dental’s highest ranking during the eight out of nine years the Company has been recognized by this Program.

The Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania is a survey, study and award program designed to identify the best places of employment in Pennsylvania for the benefit of the state, its workforce and businesses.

“We are extremely proud to receive this honor,” said George Rable, Vice-President of Culture & People at Benco Dental. “We strive to attract and maintain the best talent. Being named a ‘Best Place to Work’ is a direct result of hiring high quality associates and offering a work environment that challenges, rewards and retains them.”

The rankings are compiled through research via a survey that is sent to employers and employees from hundreds of companies in Pennsylvania. Using a formula similar to Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America,” the Best Companies Group scores the workplace practices survey along with the employee survey and each Best Places to Work candidate is given an overall score.

To be eligible, participating companies must be a for-profit or not-for-profit business, publicly or privately held, have a facility in Pennsylvania, have at least 25 employees in Pennsylvania and be in good standing with all commonwealth agencies under the Governor’s jurisdiction.

The winners of this year’s contest employ about 80,000 Pennsylvanians. For more information on the Best Places to Work in PA 2011, visit their website here.
