The Boston Globe Names New England Biolabs® a Top Place to Work for 2018
Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts
Ipswich, MA (November 16, 2018) – New England Biolabs (NEB®) has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 11th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2018 issue will be published online at globe.com/topplaces on the night of November 15th and in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 18th.
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. NEB ranked 2nd in the large category.
“At NEB, we have a talented, diverse and thoughtful group of employees, who are dedicated and passionate about doing what is best for the company, the advancement of science and the preservation of the environment,” states Jim Ellard, CEO of NEB. “We strive to provide a unique and supportive culture, which promotes a healthy, balanced lifestyle in and outside the workplace. Maintaining and constantly improving that culture is key to our continuing success. We would like to thank our employees for over 40 years of service and dedication. Their passion, humility and sincerity has helped make NEB one of the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work.”
“Making employees happy doesn't have to take a lot of effort or money, but it does require companies to put workers first," said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. "Our winning companies know that their people are their most valuable assets."
The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 82,151 individuals at 318 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.
