November 5, 2010 – Lowell, MA – Lowell General Hospital has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the third annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2010 magazine will be published in the Sunday Globe on November 7. Online, the report can be found here.

G100 2010 logo2The Top Places to Work recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics. Private companies and nonprofits as well as publicly-held businesses were included in the analysis.

This year the rankings were organized into three categories: Large, Midsize, and Small companies. The second year of receiving this honor, Lowell General Hospital was ranked fourth in the large business category; the highest listing of any hospital in the state. Additionally, the hospital ranked fourth in the state for having a diverse workforce and eighth highest for providing employees with career growth opportunities.

The Globe invited 1,160 employers to participate in the third annual Top Places to Work. Of those, 236 organizations went all the way through the process, allowing us to conduct a confidential survey of their workers. Research partner WorkplaceDynamics of Exton, Pa., specialists in employee engagement and retention, contacted more than 133,000 employees at those companies, and received completed surveys from 82,000 individuals. Each was asked to grade their organization’s performance according to 23 distinct statements, ranging from “This organization demonstrates it values employees during difficult times ’’ to “It’s easy to tell my boss the truth.’’

“This is another outstanding achievement for Lowell General Hospital to celebrate together,” says Normand E. Deschene, president and chief executive officer. “Our employees are committed to improving the work environment, cultural aspects and professional development of the organization. Being recognized with such an accolade underscores the outstanding efforts of our staff, which make this a truly positive place to work everyday.”

The publisher of The Boston Globe Chris Mayer stated, “Each of the companies included in the Top Places to Work 2010 deserve recognition for creating a positive workplace for their employees. Their accomplishment adds to the vitality of this state’s business environment.”

Lowell General Hospital was recently recognized as a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Committee which connects the importance of work environment to excellence in patient care.

To qualify for the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work, a company must have more than 100 employees in Massachusetts. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
