Boston Business Journal Honors Lowell General Hospital as a 2013 “Best Places to Work” Winner

Hospital Ranks 9th in Large Employer Category

June 14, 2013 - Boston, MA – The Boston Business Journal has named Lowell General Hospital as one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its eleventh annual regional awards program. The hospital ranked ninth in the Large Employer category. The honor recognizes Lowell General Hospital's achievements in creating 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.

"This is the fourth year Lowell General Hospital has been honored in this prestigious annual regional awards program," said Joseph (Jody) White, President of Lowell General Hospital. "It is such a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees who have helped build a workplace culture that is one of the best in Massachusetts. They truly make Lowell General Hospital a great place to work."

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 the 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," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "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."

The top 25 companies in three size categories were awarded during a lively cocktail reception on Thursday, June 13at the iconic CitiCenter/Wang Theatre in Boston and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on Friday, June 14.
