One asset lands a company on our annual list of Top Places to Work in Massachusetts: happy employees. The more positive workers are about their employer on an anonymous questionnaire, the higher it ranks.
Each year, The Boston Globe’s partner on the project, Workplace Dynamics of Exton, Pennsylvania, specialists in employee engagement and retention, surveys workers around the state. Of the 2,021 companies invited to participate this year, 332 went all the way through the process. More than 70,000 employees rated them on things like direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay, and benefits.
Winners are declared in four categories: small (50 to 99 workers); medium (100 to 249); large (250 to 999); and largest (1,000 or more).
In the following special section you’ll find not just the 2016 winners and their rankings, but stories about noteworthy practices designed to keep workers smiling everywhere around the state and beyond.
