Top 100 Employer
Dental Marketing Experts, Patient News
A great place to work - great people to work with!
Patient News is proud to be celebrating 20 years of dental marketing and dental advertising success. We've been recognized for four consecutive years as a Top 100 Employer as compared against 70,000 companies. "Being named a Top 100 Employer is truly an honor. We work very hard to provide an exceptional working environment and experience," says Karen Galley, President. "Employees who care about the success of our company are ultimately what will ensure our continued success in a competitive marketplace. We show our team that we care by making Patient News an energized and productive work environment that provides opportunities to learn and advance while acknowledging the importance of family and personal time. We have created a workplace that is a privilege to be part of and we are strongly committed to our team of talented and dedicated dental marketing experts." Seven key areas helped Patient News earn this recognition; physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health; financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development. Charitable and community efforts are also at the forefront at Patient News.

Family & PNP's Kids Klub
Quality, cost and convenience are a challenge for parents when arranging for short-time babysitting after school. We are committed to family at Patient News, and provide after-school babysitting services for parents with kids from 5-10 years of age. The children are bused direct to the doors at PNP, and enjoy quiet games, crafts, computer sessions and movies. Our babysitting program has built lifetime friendships between the kids and provides comfort to parents who know that their kids are happy, well cared for and secure. Babysitters are generally children of PNP staff, including those responsible teens who have now graduated from the PNP Kids Klub!
Living and working in the beautiful surroundings of the Haliburton Highlands is an opportunity we like to make the most of in every season.
Located lakeside in Haliburton, we celebrate summer on our grassy lawn overlooking the water with themed barbecues, volleyball games in our sand court, paddleboating, kayaking, biking and many hikes around the community. Our Annual Summer Party is held on a workday at the President's Lakehouse where employees engage in team building games, fun skits and presentations; spouses join for an evening of dinner, music and bonfires and we award our coveted Employee of the Year.
It's cooler for a longer period in the highlands, so we have lots of fun including "snow volleyball" games, curling teams, pizza nights and bowling events. We hold our Annual Ski Day at Sir Sam's Ski & Bike Area featuring the highly anticipated hot potato event - now we've added Zipfy to our day! Our Annual Holiday Event is the gala of the year, held at a beautiful area resort we enjoy dinner, dance and overnight accommodation with our team and their significant other.
