The Top Places to Work 2020 issue publishes online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of November 19 and in Globe Magazine on November 22.
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.
Seniors Helping Seniors, Greater Boston & Metrowest was ranked 11 in the medium-size employers category. Seniors Helping Seniors, Greater Boston & Metrowest is a Waltham-based senior home care agency providing companionship focused on keeping seniors socially active and engaged, while providing meaningful employment opportunities. “We are thrilled to be named a top employer in Massachusetts again this year, especially earning a #11 spot! This year has certainly had its challenges with the pandemic, but we’ve continued to work hard to provide compassionate care and connectedness. With our unique peer-to-peer model, it’s important that our staff always know how valued they are, and more than ever before, we wouldn’t be where we are without our incredible team,” said Josh Obeiter, Seniors Helping Seniors, Greater Boston & Metrowest Executive Director & Owner.
“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 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.
