Nitsch Engineering is pleased to announce we have been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 13th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The company was ranked #43 in the Medium-sized Firm category. The full list of winners can be viewed online at Globe.com/TopPlaces.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best — their 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.
Nitsch Engineering Chairman & CEO Lisa A. Brothers, PE, ENV SP, LEED AP BD+C, said, “While this has been an unprecedented year, we chose to continue to enter this competition because we remain committed to really listening to our employees. As we quickly shifted to primarily working remotely, we’ve remained actively focused on our core value of transparency and have provided multiple spaces for our employees to voice their needs and concerns. The feedback that we receive from The Boston Globe survey helps us stay focused on another core value of continuous improvement and remain connected to our employees’ needs. We’re excited to have made the list again this year, and that we now have valuable information to keep improving!”
“This was a particularly challenging year to be a great place to work, and the companies that made our list went above and beyond to keep their employees safe, engaged, and cared for,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “From offering help with childcare to making the workplace more equitable to holding virtual talent shows, these employers showed that the best get better in crisis.”
The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 285 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.
