Boston Business Journal Honors Acquia as a 2012 “Best Places to Work” Winner [April 26, 2012]
Boston, MA – April 26, 2012 --- The Boston Business Journal has named Acquia, the enterprise guide to Drupal, as one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its tenth annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes Acquia's achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Acquia 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 and April.
“I’m proud to be part of the global Acquia team,” said Tom Erickson, chief executive officer at Acquia. “We’re passionate about customer success with Drupal, working with some of the biggest brands in the world. Joining Acquia isn’t like joining any other company; it’s joining the thriving Drupal community that is active in more than 227 countries. Our focus on “doing well and doing good” reflects our team’s desire for building a great business while giving back to the community and society as a whole.”
“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.
The top 25 companies in three size categories — small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) — will be awarded during a lively breakfast on June 1st at the BCEC and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal.
