Winchester Hospital Named No. 9 Best Place to Work
Winchester Hospital has been named No. 9 on Boston Business Journal’s 2013 Best Places to Work in Massachusetts list in the large company category for excellence in employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Winchester Hospital has been recognized in all 12 years of the program’s existence, twice with the No. 1 ranking. This year, more than 400 companies qualified for consideration.
Companies were evaluated on the results of satisfaction surveys, which included questions about work environment, work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, and compensation and benefits. The survey project was launched by Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Neb.
“To be considered one of the best places to work in Massachusetts is truly an honor," said Kevin Smith, president and chief executive officer of Winchester Hospital. "Our entire team goes above and beyond every day in support of our patients and each other. That's what makes Winchester Hospital a great place to work."
“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,” said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. “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.”
Winchester Hospital, along with 59 other winners in three categories – small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) – are profiled in Boston Business Journal’s special June 13 supplement.
