Procrastinators, take heart. If you like your job but didn’t get around to nominating your company as one of the state’s best employers, you still have time.
The deadline to take part in The Boston Globe’s annual Top Places to Work survey has been extended to June 27.
Any organization with 50 or more employees in Massachusetts can participate — including private and public companies, nonprofit groups, and government agencies.
The Globe’s research partner, WorkPlaceDynamics, will contact nominated organizations and ask employees to participate in a confidential 22-statement survey covering factors such as leadership, training opportunities, and benefits.
Last year, more than 76,000 employees completed the survey, and 125 employers in four size categories came out on top.
The top winners were a day care provider, Bright Horizons Family Solutions in Watertown; the law firm consultancy Analysis Group of Boston; a bank, Institution for Savings in Newburyport; and ALKU, a consulting and staffing firm in Andover.
Among the comments already submitted by employees:
“We are an open company where people aren’t afraid to voice opinions and ideas.”
“I feel like I am valued, cared for, and challenged every day.”
“Amazing culture and people. A positive vibe always.”
