Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts
Kirwan Surgical Products has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the ninth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2016 issue will be published online at BostonGlobe.com/topplaces on the night of November 17 and in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 20.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the 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.
Kirwan was ranked 30 in the medium sized company category.
Every person employed at Kirwan Surgical Products is important to the company. Kirwan fully realizes their outstanding reputation strongly depends upon the dedication, commitment, and satisfaction of their employees. “This award is really a reflection of all the great people we have working here. Our employees make this company what it is and we thank them all for their tremendous efforts.” Stated Kirwan’s President, Scott Kirwan.
“In today’s tight job market, competition for the best workers is intense,” said Larry Edelman, the Globe’s business editor. “Our winning companies know that creating a motivating and supportive environment is key to finding and keeping talent.”
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 70,500 individuals at 366 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.
