Hebrew SeniorLife Named a Top Place to Work for 2023 by The Boston Globe

Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts

Hebrew SeniorLife, a Harvard Medical School-affiliated, integrated system of health care, senior living, research, and teaching, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 15th annual list published by The Boston Globe. This is the fifth time that Hebrew SeniorLife has been named to the list. 

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best — their employees. The anonymous survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. 

The nonprofit organization was ranked #14 in the Largest Employer category (1,000 or more employees), up from #24 in 2021, which was the last time the organization participated in the survey.

Hebrew SeniorLife employs more than 2,400 people who serve 4,500 seniors per day on six campuses in Greater Boston, as well as through its home- and community-based services. 

“This award is evidence of all the work our employees do to create a culture in which we appreciate and recognize each other, and find purpose in fulfilling our important mission of helping older adults live with purpose and joy,” said Linda Thompson, Hebrew SeniorLife chief people officer. “The survey data showed that working here makes people feel like they’re part of something meaningful, and that HSL operates by strong values. We see this every day in the quality of care and the experience our employees provide, and the way we are looked to by the health and senior care industries as a standard-bearer. Our greatest strength is the people of Hebrew SeniorLife.”

“The best employers are always striving to put their people first, whether they’re honoring small individual accomplishments or adjusting company-wide policies to become more inclusive,” 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 137,000 individuals at 347 Massachusetts organizations. The winners are constantly working to improve their workplaces, from investigating how artificial intelligence can assist workers, not replace them, to helping workers get to know each other in an increasingly hybrid world.

The full listing can be viewed online and in the Sunday, December 3, issue of the Globe Magazine.
