JUNE 19, 2020—The Boston Business Journal has named Focus Technology to its 2020 Best Places to Work — the BBJ’s exclusive ranking of the Massachusetts companies that have built outstanding work environments for their people.The 79 companies honored in 2020 range in size and industry, with winners from the technology sector, retail industry, health care space, commercial real estate and more.
The 165 businesses that met criteria for office location and size participated in employee-engagement surveys distributed by Business Journal partner Quantum Workplace. Employees were asked to rate their work environment, work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, compensation and benefits.
Based on the results of those surveys, businesses were assigned a score out of 100 percent and ranked by Quantum. The top-rated companies are listed in five size categories — extra small (20 to 49 employees), small (50 to 99 employees), medium (100 to 249 employees), large (250 to 999 employees) and extra-large (1,000 employees and up).
“These are challenging days for businesses and their employees,” said Carolyn Jones, Boston Business Journal market president and publisher, “and the companies that appear on this year’s Best Places to Work lists — our 18th year of honoring such companies — are leading the way as the region’s top workplaces.”
A Best Places to Work special publication is scheduled to be published in the Oct. 2 Weekly Edition of the Business Journal. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Business Journal's celebration, scheduled to be held Sept. 30, will be held virtually. More information on the event will be forthcoming.
