Boston Business Journal Honors Lowell General Hospital as a 2014 “Best Places to Work” Winner

Lowell General Hospital has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Business Journal for the fifth year in a row. Ranking eighth in the large employer category, Lowell General Hospital continues to create a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

Lowell General Hospital was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March and April.

“It brings me great pride that Lowell General Hospital has been named as a 2014 Best Place to Work,” said Joseph White, president of Lowell General Hospital. “The efforts put forth by our employees have given us the reputation of a great corporate culture where everyone is committed to our promise of delivering Complete connected care. Our employees make Lowell General Hospital a wonderful place to work, and without their efforts Lowell General Hospital would not be the trusted regional healthcare provider that we have become today.”

The survey project was launched in January by The Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on results of more than 18,000 employee- satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.

"Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business,” said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal.

The top 20 companies in three size categories were awarded during a lively cocktail reception on Thursday, June 12 at the iconic CitiCenter/Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on Friday, June 13.
