A Watertown-based company made the list of Best Places to Work picked by the Boston Business Journal.
Bright Horizons Family Solutions, a leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, early education, and work-life solutions, has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Boston Business Journal, according to an announcement from the company. This marks the ninth year in a row that Bright Horizons has been named to the list. Bright Horizons was ranked number three in the “extra-large company” category.
“The Bright Horizons family is honored to again be named to the BBJ’s ‘Best Places to Work’ list,” said Bright Horizons Chief Executive Officer David Lissy. “Each day our employees come to work committed to creating a work environment filled with collaboration, opportunities for growth, and recognition for jobs well done. Perhaps more important, they see the value in ensuring their colleagues feel supported in all aspects of life, so that they can do their best work and be their best selves. It is only because of their efforts that we have been given this recognition once again.”
The announcement said, Bright Horizons employs nearly 25,000 employees worldwide, with more than 2,000 employees in its home state of Massachusetts. Bright Horizons also works with close to 100 Massachusetts employers, providing work-life benefits to their collective half-million employees, just in the Commonwealth. In the last five years, the company has created more than 500 jobs in its Massachusetts child care centers and global headquarters.
Organizations on the Best Places to Work list ranked highest among the nearly 400 companies whose employees filled out an anonymous survey. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. 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.
