FRAMINGHAM, Mass., May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Everything Channel (www.everythingchannel.com), a UBM Company, today announced the company has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Business Journal. The award recognizes Everything Channel's achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture. Everything Channel was one of over 320 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of an employee-satisfaction survey.
"Everything Channel provides employees with the best of both worlds – the financial backing and benefits of a large company with the entrepreneurial environment of a start up. Our employees appreciate the autonomy they have to get the job done, the company's tight knit family feel and our focus on providing professional and personal growth opportunities," commented Robert Faletra, CEO, Everything Channel. "Whether it be through sabbaticals or community service opportunities we recognize that stepping back from the day to day grind gives our people better perspective and renewed energy which fuels our continued success. We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to providing this kind of positive and rewarding work environment."
"Our Best Places to Work event recognizes 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 results validate 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."
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.
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 during a lively breakfast on June 9th at the BCEC and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal published on June 10, 2011.
