Article
Hebrew SeniorLife (HSL), the largest provider of senior health care and communities in New England, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the eighth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2015 list is published online at BostonGlobe.com/topplaces and appeared in the November 15 Boston Globe Magazine.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—the 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 based on their number of employees. Hebrew SeniorLife, with more than 2,400 employees, ranked 25 in the largest employer (1,000+ employees) category.

"Our employees are the "heart and soul" of HSL and it’s because of them that we have been named to the Top Places to Work list," said Lou Woolf, HSL’s President and CEO.

"The success of a company is not only measured by its revenue and profits, but also by the loyalty and satisfaction of its employees," said Katie Johnston, Boston Globe workplace reporter and Top Places to Work editor. "The winning companies have developed innovative ways to engage and motivate their workers, which often serves as a key factor in innovation and leads to better professional performance."

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 77,000 individuals at 357 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.
