Smile Brands Inc. has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, for the second year in a row moving from the 43rd to 25th position on the list of the top 100 Best Places to work in the U.S. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 11th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.
Smile Brands, a leading dental support organization with nearly 400 affiliated practices across 16 states, has a deeply rooted culture founded in the company’s mission to deliver Smiles for Everyone®. Co-founder and CEO, Steven C. Bilt has a 98 percent approval rating on Glassdoor and was named a Glassdoor Employees Choice 2018 Top CEO this summer.
“Providing patient-focused care day after day requires a dedicated team of employees and affiliated providers who fully support our mission,” explains Bilt. “Maintaining a positive culture based on providing Smiles for Everyone is our way of guaranteeing the best possible patient experience. I’m proud to be a part of this great team and thrilled to have been again honored with the Best Places to Work award.”
“Dentistry is a people business and it’s undeniable that when employees are aligned around a common mission, patients’ benefit,” explains Bilt. “To be named one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work is a validation of our operational model which is based on the premise that good things happen when everyone has a reason to smile. I believe that culture should be on top every CEOs agenda if they care about attracting and retaining talented employees.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November, 2017 and October, 2018. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
