Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts
WALTHAM, MA (DECEMBER 2, 2021) – Seniors Helping Seniors®, Greater Boston & Metrowest has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 14th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2021 issue publishes online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of December 1 and in Globe Magazine on December 5.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them 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.
Seniors Helping Seniors®, Greater Boston & Metrowest, was ranked 3 in the medium employer category.
“We are thrilled to be honored again as a Top Places to Work in Massachusetts. We’re a bit different from the traditional employer as the average age of our employees is 67. While we believe that age is just a number, we also view it as our most strategic advantage. Our workforce is full of engaged older adults with diverse and rich life experiences that allow them to connect and relate more deeply while providing care and enhancing the quality of life of the clients that they serve,” said Josh Obeiter, Seniors Helping Seniors, Greater Boston & Metrowest Executive Director & Owner.
“The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and the companies that embraced that change, and put their employees’ needs first, really stood out,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.
The rankings in 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 more than 80,000 individuals at 363 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.
Top Places to Work online extras include sortable rankings and features such as showcasing companies that are going the extra mile to make their workplaces more equitable and to help employees connect with one another, and their communities, during the pandemic.
