Bright Horizons Honored as "Best Place to Work" by the Boston Business Journal

[June 13, 2014] Bright Horizons Family Solutions®, a leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, early education, and work/life solutions, has been recognized as one of the "Best Places to Work" by the Boston Business Journal. This marks the eighth year in a row that Bright Horizons has been named to the list. Bright Horizons was named to the top 10 in the "large company" category.

"We are honored to again be named to the BBJ’s Best Places to Work list," said Bright Horizons Chief Executive Officer David Lissy. "Each day our employees collaborate to create a workplace that offers opportunities for growth, rewards for hard work, and the supports to help one another achieve success both in their professional and personal lives. It is only because of our employees' shared commitment to creating a great working environment that we are able to maintain a strong company culture, and have the honor of being recognized by the BBJ today."

Organizations on the Best Places to Work list ranked highest among the nearly 300 companies whose employees filled out an anonymous survey. The survey project to determine who makes the list 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 companies on this year's list were awarded during an event on June 12th at the CitiCenter /Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on June 13th.

"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."
