WATERTOWN, Mass., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Horizons Family Solutions®, a leading provider of high-quality child care, early education, educational counseling and other services designed to help employers and families address the challenges of work and life, was named the #4 "The Top Place to Work in 2015" by The Boston Globe.
"Our greatest strength is our family of dedicated employees who are passionate about consistently meeting the high expectations the families and the employers we work with expect from us," said Bright Horizons CEO David Lissy. "Together, our employees in our child care centers and in our home office carry out our mission of supporting families through our unique culture that is based on honesty, accountability, excellence, respect and teamwork."
Lissy continued, "Over the nearly thirty years since Bright Horizons was founded, creating a work environment that supports talented professionals in and out of the office has been central to our mission. We feel fortunate to partner with organizations who also value the importance of helping employees achieve both professional and personal success."
Earlier this year, Bright Horizons commissioned the second annual Bright Horizons Modern Family Index, a survey that uncovers the challenges working parents in America face today as they try to meet employer expectations and family obligations. While this year's study reveals that working parents throughout the U.S. are still struggling to manage all of their responsibilities, it confirms that working parents are valued by their managers and with the right supports could be more creative and productive.
The Top Workplaces survey is conducted by Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. It is determined solely on employee feedback, based off a survey of nearly two dozen questions that measure three critical elements of the workplace: direction, execution and connection. The survey asks employees to rate their organization based on several factors including appreciation, management practices and career opportunities.
The full list of Top Places to Work was featured in a special section in the Boston Sunday Globe on November 15. The link to the report can be found at bostonglobe.com/topplaces.
