Bright Horizons Employees Part of an All-Star Line-Up!

top workplaces

It's still three days until Thanksgiving, and already we've got one more thing to be grateful for. For the tenth straight year, the Boston Globe has named Bright Horizons as one of Massachusetts' 2017 Top Places to Work.

Thanks to Our Employees!

How did we get here? We like to think it comes down to one word!employees. Well, two words: happy employees. "We spend roughly 90,000 hours of our lives at work," reads the Boston Globe article about the list. "Wouldn't it be nice if we enjoyed them?" At these 125 companies, people do. Survey results came from anonymous respondents who talked about flexibility, employee development, and culture. They also talked about the importance of that often overlooked secret ingredient - a little fun. We're big believers in all of those. As we've said before in this space, we'd include "fun" in our values statement (the HEART principles of Honesty, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork)...but HEARTF doesn't have the same ring to it.

Congratulations to our Clients and Friends: 2017 Top Places to Work

We're especially proud to be on the "overachiever's list," a scroll of all-star companies named to the list all ten years, and who take care of employees with support for families and careers. That we were called out specifically for how we help employees grow is just icing on the cake. Our leaders talk inside and out of our company about the importance of investing in employees and helping them grow. And the list shows that we practice what we preach. Even better, we've got lots of company - clients and Massachusetts friends who believe what we believe; that great work starts with great workplaces.

Thanks again, Boston Globe. And congratulations Bright Horizons employees (to those who'd like to think about joining us...we're hiring! Visit our careers page here). A big shout-out to all of this year's winners. Congratulations!
