Klement Family Dental: One of the Tampa Bay Times’ Best Places to Work

Every year, The Tampa Bay Times awards select businesses the great honor of a 2018 Top Workplaces Award. This year, on April 8, Klement Family Dental was among the honor recipients.

From routine care to emergency dental office services in St. Petersburg, this award proves that Klement Family Dental is among the best of the best.

Employees Speak for Themselves

The remarkable thing about this award is that it’s determined by employee votes and feedback. The nominated businesses are carefully considered to decide which ones truly exemplify the right qualities to be declared an exceptional workplace. Employee surveys gathered a host of information that scored each business in the following categories:

  • Connection
  • Management
  • Alignment
  • Effectiveness

Connection was evaluated in relation to how much employees felt that their work was meaningful as well as appreciated by their peers, bosses,and clients. Management was scored based on how well they prioritized helping their teams grow and meet personal goals, along with how meaningfully management was invested in and concerned for the wellbeing of their employees. To score well in alignment meant that employees felt a strong belief in the company’s vision, direction, and values in the short and long term. The final category, effectiveness, was where employees ranked their business on how well things were operating overall, as well as how well communication, innovation, and idea sharing were welcomed within the workplace.

Klement Family Dental scored well in all of these areas, putting them in 20th place among the top 50 small-sized businesses that made the list in the Tampa Bay area.
