Waltham, MA, November 17, 2013 – Softworld, Inc. has been named a Top Place to Work having been included in the 2013 Boston Globe’s annual list of top 125 workplaces in Massachusetts. This was the sixth annual issue of Top Places to Work with Softworld being named for the third time. The Globe’s 125 Top Places to Work magazine was published in the Sunday Globe on November 17th. Online, the report can be found at www.boston.com/topplaces.
The Boston Globe’s 2013 Top Places to Work survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics, measured more than 76,000 individuals’ responses to statements regarding six key factors related to employee happiness, including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits. Least important were pay, benefits and work-life balance, with survey subjects placing much higher importance on employee appreciation, confidence and feeling that their work is meaningful. WorkplaceDynamics also found that of all the cities surveyed, employees in Boston were most enthusiastic about their companies, making Boston the top of the Top Places to Work.
Softworld was ranked 38th on the midsize company list.
“While quite an accomplishment, this is also public recognition of the quality of individual that comprises the Softworld team” said Dave Teitelman, President and CEO, Softworld, Inc. “This prestigious award is a testament to the work ethic, attitude and commitment to service excellence exhibited as core values by all of our employees.”
“As our economy continues to heal, most of the benchmarks for progress are purely quantitative, such as increased pay rates and expanded benefits packages,” said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. “While there is definite value in these indicators, many signs of recovery cannot be boiled down to pure economics. The companies on our Top Places to Work list foster productivity and innovation by investing in the happiness of their employees, which cannot solely be measured in dollars and cents.”
