Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Keystone Partners, a Boston-based career management firm, announced that they have been named a ‘2012 Top Places to Work’ by The Boston Globe’. Each year, The Boston Globe spotlights the region’s best employers based on surveys completed by the people who know these companies best -- the employees themselves.
“We are honored to be named as part of the ’2012 Top Places to Work’, said Ralph Roberto, President of Keystone Partners, a Career Partners International firm. ‘It’s an even greater honor because it comes from our own staff. It’s really exciting to know that our commitment to creating a strong and meaningful company culture is working and that our employees enjoy coming to work each day. We are committed to continually improving so we can retain our most valuable asset, our staff.”
In addition to the rankings, the magazine highlights creative corporate perks; from working vacations in Crete to free lunches from food trucks.
“When we launched in 2008 during the Great Recession, we wondered if employers would lose focus on keeping their employees happy,” Boston Globe Business Editor Shirley Leung said. “But businesses have continued to make strides in employee appreciation and opportunities.”
“I think I speak for the entire staff when I say that we are thrilled to have made the Boston Globe’s ‘Top Places to Work’ list,” said Erin Lamberti, marketing manager for Keystone Partners. “Our management team puts a lot of thought, time and effort into making Keystone a great place to work and it’s exciting to see those efforts have been recognized beyond the confines of our offices.”
The Boston Globe’s 2012 Top Places to Work survey was conducted by WorkPlace Dynamics of Exton, Pa., specialists in employee engagement and retention. The Globe invited 1,586 employers to participate in the survey; 304 organizations employing a total of 210,000 people completed the process. Completed surveys were received from 81,907 individuals, who rated their employers based on workplace practices in compensation, leadership, appreciation, career opportunities and management.
