BOSTON, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small and medium sized businesses, has been recognized by the Boston Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts for the third consecutive year. The honor recognizes Carbonite's achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
"We are thrilled to be honored as a 'Best Place to Work' by the Boston Business Journal for the third year in a row. This is a tribute to the work every employee continues to contribute to making Carbonite a great place to work and to our great company culture," said David Friend, Carbonite CEO and Chairman. "We congratulate our fellow winners on this recognition and on collectively providing thriving workplace environments for the region's talented workforce."
"Our Best Places to Work awards 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 winners demonstrate 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."
This year, over 400 companies qualified for consideration in the tenth annual regional awards program. The top 25 companies in three size categories — small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) — will be awarded at a breakfast event on June 1st at the Boston Convention and Event Center and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal.

About "Best Places to Work" The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.
