“Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another.” – John Maxwell

At Benton House you will find leaders all over our organization, regardless of role. Leaders are not bound by title but measured on influence. And those called to lead in our organization understand the price to lead is a willingness to serve those they support. First and foremost, they must possess a strong desire to ethically and honestly respect, recognize and develop those team members in their care.

It’s this philosophy that has driven some of the highest tenure and satisfaction numbers in our industry. Department leaders average over four years’ service, Executive Directors over five. And satisfaction scores are above 90% across all major trust indexes.

As important, our team has a strong affinity for the people who lead in our company. This is represented not just in our high scores with our A Great Place to Work surveys, but also the hundreds of comments we receive annually. Family is a word that can be a cliché, but in our company it is genuine.
