Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
The Boston Business Journal has named MaidPro Franchising one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its twelfth annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes MaidPro’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
MaidPro Franchising was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March & April.
We are in the service business, so it is critical that we wow both our clients and our staff, says MaidPro CEO and co-founder Mark Kushinsky. It is extremely gratifying to see such an overwhelming positive response from our employees and to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by the Boston Business Journal for the fourth year in a row.
“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”
The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.
60 companies total …the top 20 companies in three size categories will be awarded during a lively cocktail reception on June 12th at the iconic CitiCenter / Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on June 13th
