Tufts Health Plan Named a 2018 Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe

Eighth consecutive year to earn a ranking on the list

November 16, 2018  

Watertown, MA – Tufts Health Plan has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 11th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. Tufts Health Plan ranked number 13 in the largest company category (1,000+ employees).

“The employees in our organization are extraordinary. They believe very strongly in our mission and demonstrate their commitment to improving the lives of our members every day,” said Lydia Greene, Tufts Health Plan chief human resources officer. “I’m proud to work at a company that is so collaborative, creative and welcoming to all. It truly is an honor to be named a Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe, and we owe thanks to our employees for putting us there.”

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.

“Making employees happy doesn't have to take a lot of effort or money, but it does require companies to put workers first," said Katie Johnston, the Globes Top Places to Work editor. "Our winning companies know that their people are their most valuable assets."

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 82,151 individuals at 318 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.
