WEST BRIDGEWATER (November 20, 2017) –Old Colony Hospice has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 10th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2017 issue will be published online at Globe.com/topplaces on the night of November 16 and in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 19.
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.
Old Colony Hospice was ranked fifth in the Small Employers category.
As a free-standing, non-profit, Medicare certified, accredited health care organization, we are proud to serve over 55 cities and towns in Southeastern Massachusetts in order to serve our patients and families in whatever setting they consider home. We also are able to offer physical, occupational and speech therapy through relationships with other care providers. Our vision is “To make the end of life care experience better for the people we serve”.
“Our winning companies are all in on a secret,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “Treating employees well isn’t that difficult, and the payoff -- increased morale, retention, and productivity -- is huge.”
The rankings in the 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 nearly 75,060 individuals at 334 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.
