“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage,” said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. “Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren’t as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”
The Best Places to Work winners ranked highest among the nearly 300 companies whose employees filled out an anonymous survey. The results were tabulated independently by Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Neb. At a June 12 event there will be a countdown culminating in the announcement of the top winner in each category — small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large, (501-plus).
