Hebrew SeniorLife Named a Top Place to Work for 2021 by The Boston Globe

Nonprofit Senior Care Organization Ranked 24th of the Top Largest Companies

BOSTON – Hebrew SeniorLife, New England’s largest nonprofit provider of senior health care and living communities dedicated to improving the lives of older adults, has been listed again as one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 14th annual ranking by The Boston Globe. This is the fourth time Hebrew SeniorLife has been included. The Top Places to Work 2021 issue is published online at Globe.com/TopPlaces and will be in Globe Magazine December 5.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their 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: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

Hebrew SeniorLife was ranked #24 for large organizations with more than 1,000 employees. The nonprofit, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, has provided services for seniors in the Boston area since 1903. Today, the organization provides health care, senior living communities, research into aging, and education for geriatric care providers. The organization’s 2,600 employees serve more than 3,000 seniors each day, at its nine locations in Boston, Brookline, Canton, Dedham, Randolph, and Revere, as well as through its home and community-based services.

“We are proud to be recognized as a 2021 Boston Globe Top Place to Work and grateful to know that our employees continue to view Hebrew SeniorLife as a great place to work despite the many challenges they’ve endured during the ongoing pandemic. The recognition is also important as it provides the opportunity to receive input from staff about how we’re doing so we can become an even better place to work,” said Lou Woolf, president and CEO of Hebrew SeniorLife.

“The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and the companies that embraced that change, and put their employees’ needs first, really stood out,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.

The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 363 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.
