Willamette Dental Group, a Northwest regional multi-specialty group dental practice and group dental insurance carrier, has received the Employee Voice Award for ‘Highest Level of Engagement’ for a medium-sized business (500-1,999 employees), from Quantum Workplace.

Employee engagement is the strength of the mental and emotional connection employees feel toward their places of work. Employee engagement affects just about every important element of an organization – profitability, revenues, client experience, employee turnover, talent acquisition, brand presence, market share, and workplace safety. Employees who are connected to their organization work harder, stay longer, and motivate others to do the same. Willamette Dental Group earned the award by focusing on employee satisfaction, including work-life balance, and benefits.

“This award shows that our hard work and efforts to be the employer of choice are paying off,” says Willamette Dental Group Chief Operating Officer Kristen Simmons. “We love our employees; they are the lifeblood of our organization.”

Willamette Dental Group is a privately held accountable care organization which employs over 1400 staff members, with a 425,000+ patient member base, and 52 practices across metro and rural areas of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Founded in 1970, they were the Pacific Northwest’s first provider of coordinated dental care. They are currently the largest multi-specialty group dental practice in the Pacific Northwest

Founded in 2002, Quantum Workplace is an employee feedback software company based in Omaha, NE. They have worked with over 8,700 international and national organizations, both small and large.
