Press Release: Top Places to Work 2013

WinterWyman Named A Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe

Ranking Marks Sixth Consecutive Year Firm Has Been Recognized

Boston, Massachusetts (November 17, 2013) — WinterWyman has been named a “Top Place to Work” in the sixth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. WinterWyman has been recognized for each of the six years in which The Globe has ranked the top workplaces. WinterWyman topped the 2009 small-employer category.

The Top Places to Work honors the state’s most beloved workplaces based on surveys of the people who know best — the employees themselves. The Boston Globe’s 2013 Top Places to Work survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics, measured more than 76,000 individuals’ responses to statements regarding six key factors related to employee happiness, including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits. Least important were pay, benefits and work-life balance, with survey subjects placing much higher importance on employee appreciation, confidence and feeling that their work is meaningful. WorkplaceDynamics also found that of all the cities surveyed, employees in Boston were most enthusiastic about their companies, making Boston the top of the Top Places to Work.

“We are a proud company with a long-standing commitment to excellence and integrity and are humbled to be recognized alongside so many wonderful organizations as one of The Globe’s Top Places to Work,” said Bob Boudreau, CEO of WinterWyman.

“As our economy continues to heal, most of the benchmarks for progress are purely quantitative, such as increased pay rates and expanded benefits packages,” said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. “While there is definite value in these indicators, many signs of recovery cannot be boiled down to pure economics. The companies on our Top Places to Work list foster productivity and innovation by investing in the happiness of their employees, which cannot solely be measured in dollars and cents.”
