PAN Communications has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the eighth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2015 issue will be published online at BostonGlobe.com/topplaces on the night of November 12 and in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 15.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—the 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.
PAN Communications was ranked 18 in the small category.
“Earning this incredible recognition from The Boston Globe on our first year of eligibility is special for so many reasons. Preserving a tight-knit, employee-focused culture during times of high growth can often prove challenging for organizations. In fact, as we have continued to grow in size, our workplace culture has only become stronger,” says Phil A. Nardone Jr., president and founder of PAN. “Employee-voted awards hold particular significance for me because they are the true testament of the amazing culture – one defined by integrity, hard work, kindness and superior client service – that our employees foster every day through their individual contributions. It’s been a banner year for PAN – this is the third employee-voted accolade of 2015 – and I could not be more proud of the PAN team and everything we stand for.”
“The success of a company is not only measured by its revenue and profits, but also by the loyalty and satisfaction of its employees,” said Katie Johnston, Boston Globe workplace reporter and Top Places to Work editor. “The winning companies have developed innovative ways to engage and motivate their workers, which often serves as a key factor in innovation and leads to better professional performance.”
The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 77,000 individuals at 357 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.
