BOSTON (November 9, 2008) – Aquent has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the debut of an employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Globe 100’s Top Places to Work magazine was published in the Sunday Globe on November 9. Online, the report can be found at boston.com/business
Produced by the same team that compiles the 21-year-old Globe 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Massachusetts, the Top Places to Work recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics.
The rankings in the Globe 100’s Top Places to Work are based on survey information collected by Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from 120,000 employees at about 600 Massachusetts organizations. To qualify a company must have more than 100 employees in Massachusetts. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
This marks the first time that a Globe 100 report honors private as well as publicly-held organizations and Aquent, a privately held company, was ranked 85th on the overall list.
“Aquent is a progressive, innovative company, where our people really do make the difference. It’s about people who thrive in an open environment, inspiring each other with creative, forward-thinking ideas.” said John Chuang, founder and CEO.
The publisher of The Boston Globe Steve Ainsley stated, “All the companies included in the Globe 100’s Top Places to Work deserve a great deal of recognition. It’s clear that they value their employees and make it a priority to create a positive workplace.”
“One of the things we work hard to preserve at Aquent is our holistic view of the organization,” said Jennifer Horton, VP Human Resources at Aquent. “When you’re able to recognize and value each member of the team, you create a positive environment where successes are shared and celebrated. Our Boston office is no exception—each person is encouraged to add their own unique touch, a fundamental part of the Aquent experience.”
