Tufts Health Plan Named a 2020 Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe
10th consecutive year to be recognized by its employees as a top place to work
Watertown, MA – Tufts Health Plan has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 13th annual employee-based survey from The Boston Globe. Tufts Health Plan ranked number 14 in the largest company category (1,000+ employees). This is the 10th consecutive year Tufts Health Plan has been recognized by its employees on the list.
“Receiving this recognition for 10 years in a row is a great honor and it’s really our extraordinary employees who deserve all the credit,” said Lydia Greene, Tufts Health Plan chief human resources officer. “The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we live and work. We’ve found new ways to stay connected to one another while expanding our library of resources to support employees’ mental and physical wellbeing, and expanding on flexible work schedules. Our employees have continued to show that no matter where their workstation may be, they are dedicated to one another, our members and our communities. They have not missed a beat.”
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.
“This was a particularly challenging year to be a great place to work, and the companies that made our list went above and beyond to keep their employees safe, engaged, and cared for,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “From offering help with childcare to making the workplace more equitable to holding virtual talent shows, these employers showed that the best get better in crisis.”
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 more than 80,000 individuals at 285 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.
