December 7, 2023
Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts
BRAINTREE, MA (DECEMBER, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – OOFOS, the global leader in Active Recovery footwear, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 15th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2023 issue published online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of Wednesday, November 29 and in Globe Magazine on Sunday, December 3.
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.
“At OOFOS, our mission is to ‘make yOO feel better,’ and this includes our team. Our employees bring this mission to life every day through teamwork and mutual respect – a powerful combination – and they are truly what makes OOFOS one of the Top Places to Work,” says Lou Panaccione, co-founder and CEO of OOFOS.
“The best employers are always striving to put their people ﬁrst, whether they’re honoring small individual accomplishments or adjusting company-wide policies to become more inclusive,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.
The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on conﬁdential survey information collected by Energage (formerly Workplace Dynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 137K individuals at 347 Massachusetts organizations. The winners are constantly working to improve their workplaces, from investigating how artiﬁcial intelligence can assist workers, not replace them, to helping workers get to know each other in an increasingly hybrid world.
Top Places to Work online extras include sortable rankings and features showcasing companies that are going the extra mile to make their workplaces more supportive and responsive to their employees’ ever-changing needs.
