Southborough-based social recognition firm ranked 13th on highly competitive list of best employers in Massachusetts

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. – November 13, 2015 – Globoforce®,a leading provider of social recognition solutions, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe. The company ranked 13th in the medium-sized business category. This is the third time Globoforce has made the list, which recognizes the most progressive companies in Massachusetts based on employees’ opinions.

“Our company helps millions of employees around the world feel more valued and appreciated for the work they do every day. Yet building more human work cultures starts with our own,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “We thank The Boston Globe for recognizing our efforts to improve the future of work by fostering a happier, more fulfilling work experience. But most importantly, we thank our amazing employees for the commitment, passion, and pride that has propelled our business forward.”

A leading SaaS-based HR software company, Globoforce introduced social recognition innovation to the HR industry. Its internal program, Globostars, recognizes employee performance that aligns to the company’s core values of Imagination, Determination, Innovation and Respect. The program connects its employees every day and empowers and inspires them to recognize each other for outstanding performance and behaviors. The company pioneered the WorkHuman movement, created to galvanize organizations and leaders worldwide to create a more human workplace. This movement culminates annually at the WorkHuman conference, taking place May 9-11, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

“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.”

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 size groups: small, medium, large and largest.

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 Top Places to Work 2015 issue is online and will appear in The Boston Globe Magazine Nov. 15.
