Randstad Technologies Named One of Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work for 2011
WOBURN, Mass., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Randstad Technologies has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. Surveyed among the small company category (250-999 employees), Randstad Technologies ranked #31 and was one out of only two companies in the staffing services industry to make the list. The Top Places to Work 2011 magazine was published in the Sunday Globe on November 6th, 2011. Online, the full list can be found at http://www.boston.com/jobs/topworkplaces/2011/top_places_to_work_small/.
The Top Places to Work recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics. Private companies and nonprofits as well as publicly-held businesses were included in the analysis.
The Boston Globe engaged WorkplaceDynamics, specialists in employee engagement and retention, to survey employees at 237 participating companies, receiving completed surveys from 73,813 individuals. Each was asked to grade their organization’s performance according to 24 distinct statements, ranging from “New ideas are encouraged at this company,” to “It’s easy to tell my boss the truth.” In addition, all the employers were invited to complete a 12-question survey on workplace practices.
To compile the ranking, each employer was measured according to six factors: Direction, execution, managers, career, conditions, and pay and benefits.
All of the participating employers were placed into one of three size groups, based on the number of employees in Massachusetts, to account for the “small company effect” found in such surveys. Small workplaces were defined as those with 100 to 249 employees; midsize workplaces were defined as those with 250 to 999 employees; and large workplaces were those with 1,000 or more employees. All companies were then ranked within their size band.
“I’d like to extend my congratulations to Randstad Technologies for their inclusion in the 2011 issue of The Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work, and for so clearly demonstrating effective ways to create a positive work environment,” cited Chris Mayer, publisher for the Boston Globe.
“It is our internal people that truly drive our company’s success. To have them recognize us as a Top Place to work is such a privilege,” noted Randstad Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Kristin Kelley. “As an IT staffing and solutions company, we know that in order to provide the very best service and support to our customers, it is necessary to have the best employees on our team. That is why we work to provide our employees with a challenging, yet flexible work environment.
