Becoming one of the best companies to work for didn’t happen overnight and it wasn’t a solo effort. What Northeast Delta Dental was recently recognized for, on September 30, was years in the making and a conscious commitment to not only the communities we serve, but the employees that help us serve them. That’s why we are overjoyed to have been added to the “Best Companies to Work for Hall of Fame.” Since 1998 we’ve been championing our staff and building what many know now as a “great place to work.”
The Best Companies to Work For in 2021 includes a list of 25 intriguing companies that all persevered despite a global pandemic and recession; these companies were also bold in their strategies and leadership, which were necessary to sustain employee engagement and community outreach. This approach is one that Northeast Delta Dental has adhered to for decades.
During the pandemic, however, we had to be more aggressive to make sure our people were ok. From providing employees 10 additional days of emergency leave, to our Human Resources department developing a virtual onboarding program that helped us engage new employees and safely meet workers, to biweekly group-coaching sessions to help working parents, Northeast Delta Dental takes care of its employees and we believe that is essential to creating a healthy workplace, not to mention a harmonious corporate culture.
We were honored to participate in this year’s annual “Breakfast with the Best,” a breakfast for the winners of the Business NH Magazine’s Best Companies to Work For 2021, in person. And Jermaine Moore, founder of The Mars Hill Group, a consulting firm that partners with organizations to strengthen their diversity, leadership, and team development led an inspiring keynote. It was a joy to hear him share his perspectives and insights on how diversity and inclusion can make every workplace more fulfilling and more productive.
