WAKEFIELD, Mass., Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eliassen Group, a national consulting services and staffing firm, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts for the second consecutive year in the ninth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2016 issue was published online at BostonGlobe.com/topplaces on the night of November 17 and will be featured in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 20.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company's direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.
"We are incredibly excited and honored to be named a Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe for the second consecutive year," said David MacKeen, CEO of Eliassen Group. "This award speaks volumes about our team and their contributions to our company, to our clients and to the community. We take great pride in the passion and success of our employees who are committed to the growth of Eliassen Group."
This recognition by The Boston Globe follows a multitude of honors that Eliassen Group has received this year including:
- The Baltimore Business Journal's 2016 Best Places to Work, Top 10 Finalist
- The Boston Business Journal's 2016 Best Places to Work
- Staffing Industry Analyst's Largest US Staffing Firms 2016
- The Boston Business Journal's Largest IT Consulting Firms in MA 2016
- Inc. Magazine's 50 Best Workplaces 2016
"In today's tight job market, competition for the best workers is intense," said Larry Edelman, the Globe's business editor. "Our winning companies know that creating a motivating and supportive environment is key to finding and keeping talent."
The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 70,500 individuals at 366 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they're at it.
