Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 27, 2005
Boston Business Journal has named Lifeline Systems one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts, in its third annual regional awards program. The award recognizes the company's achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Lifeline Systems has been the leading provider of personal response services in the United States for over 30 years. Lifeline is the preferred provider of medical alert services to members of the Visiting Nurses Associations of America, and to thousands of leading doctors and hospitals.
ÂOur results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages,Â said George Donnelly, Boston Business Journal editor. ÂEmployees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.Â
The Framingham-based company was one of more than 240 companies to qualify for consideration, making the top 20 list in its size category based on the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout the spring.
ÂLifeline's culture is about caring and respect for each other and for our subscribers,Â said Ellen Berezin, Vice President of Human Resources. ÂWe are truly grateful to each and every employee for practicing our values daily and thereby creating such a special place to work.Â
Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys which included questions on their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement, and relationships with co-workers and supervisors.
ÂAccommodating employees' personal needs pays back dividends of loyalty and productivity,Â noted BBJ publisher Mike Olivieri. ÂThe companies we selected are all winners because they acknowledge that the care of their employees is instrumental in maintaining the quality and reputation for services and products.Â
