Crain’s Detroit Names DENTCO One of the Coolest Places to Work in Michigan
DEWITT, Mich. (November 25, 2014) DENTCO has recently been named one of Michigan’s coolest places to work by Crain’s Detroit Business. The Crain’s Detroit Business’ Cool Places to Work list serves as an annual spotlight, identifying Michigan’s best employers.
DENTCO is full-service Exterior Services Management Company that provides a unique centralized approach to managing snow, landscaping, parking lot maintenance and various other exterior property management services for some of the largest retail brands in the country.
DENTCO President Scott Milnes said, “We are so happy to be part of the Crain’s Cool Places to Work list, and to be recognized as one of the state’s best places to work. Our most valuable commodity is our people and we work very hard to make sure they have an environment that is suitable for both personal and business growth.”
The “Cool Places” designation is given to 75 companies with exceptional corporate culture. To be considered for participation, companies need to meet certain criteria, such as a minimum of 15 employees in Michigan, and be in business for at least one year. The companies are split into three categories: 22 small-sized companies (15-49 U.S. employees), 24 medium-sized companies (50-249 U.S. employees) and 19 large-sized companies (250 or more U.S. employees).
Ben Lott, a Vendor Accounts Administrator for 14 years, said, “DENTCO is a cool place to work because it is so blatantly obvious that they care about us as employees. We have tons of different organized events and programs which make it clear that working at DENTCO isn’t all about business; we can have fun too! It is also amazing that new ideas and opinions are welcomed from all of us, so you feel like you’re part of a team rather than a corporation. Honestly, there is no cooler place to work!”
Shelly Billings, a Quality Service Coordinator for nine years said, “With employee luncheons, team building, anniversaries, birthdays, spirit week, and AAA Baseball games, anyone would be crazy to not think DENTCO is the coolest place to work. Throw in casual Fridays and health and wellness challenges and you’ve got a fun, productive, happy place to work.”
