It is the sixth time the company has achieved the prestigious honor
Wakefield, Mass., May 1, 2013 – Eliassen Group, a national technology staffing and consulting services firm, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal. The honor recognizes Eliassen Group’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Eliassen Group competed for the honor against more than 400 other companies when its employees participated in a survey conducted by the Boston Business Journal in March and April.
"This is a prestigious honor and we are excited to be recognized by the Boston Business Journal for a sixth time as a Best Place to Work company," said Eliassen Group CEO Dave MacKeen Jr. "We are proud of the culture our employees have helped to create; that culture of inclusiveness has enabled us to attract, retain and motivate some of the top talent in the region." Eliassen Group was also named a Best Places to Work winner in 2012. It also earned the honor in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
The Boston Business Journal conducted the survey in conjunction with the research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. 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.
"Our Best Places to Work event will again 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 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 top 25 companies in three size categories – small (20 to 100 employees), midsize (101 to 500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) plus five from the new category of PR/Communications – will be honored at a celebratory cocktail reception on June 13 from 6 to 9:30PM at the CitiCenter/Wang Theatre in Boston.
