Tufts Health Plan Named a 2019 Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe

Ninth consecutive year to earn a ranking on the list

November 15, 2019  

Watertown, MA - Tufts Health Plan has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 12th annual employee-based survey from The Boston Globe. Tufts Health Plan ranked number 12 in the largest company category (1,000+ employees).

“We are committed to developing an atmosphere and company culture that respects each employee as an individual and proudly maintains people-centered values,” said Lydia Greene, Tufts Health Plan chief human resources officer. “Our inclusive workplace culture attracts and retains employees from a wide range of backgrounds, as well as people often under-represented in the workplace such as older adults, Veterans, or people with disabilities. Our employees make a difference every day for each other, our members and the communities that we serve. We are honored to once again be a Top Place to Work and grateful to our employees for getting us there.”

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them 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. 

“The companies that make our list are much more than just decent employers," said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. "They make work fun, and they make their people feel cared for. Some of them even help employees realize dreams that have nothing to do with their jobs.”  

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 nearly 66,000 individuals at 323 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.
