Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts

Tamr, Inc. has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the eighth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. Tamr was ranked number one in the Small Company category.

The Top Places to Work 2015 issue is available online at, and will appear in the print issue of The Boston Globe Magazine on November 15.

“The success of a company is not only measured by its revenue and profits, but also by the loyalty and satisfaction of its employees,” said Katie Johnston, Boston Globe workplace reporter and Top Places to Work editor. “The winning companies have developed innovative ways to engage and motivate their workers, which often serves as a key factor in innovation and leads to better professional performance.”

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—the employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

“We are extremely proud to have been named one of the top places to work in Massachusetts,” said Andy Palmer, co-founder and CEO of Tamr. “Becoming a great, successful company depends on attracting and retaining the best and brightest people, and fostering a culture that’s committed to their long-term professional development. We strive to keep each of our employees healthy, happy and motivated, and working in an environment that inspires personal growth.”

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 77,000 individuals at 357 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.
