BPTW 2023

BOSTON, MA (April 18, 2023) — The Boston Business Journal has named JOHNLEONARD to its 2023 Best Places to Work — the BBJ’s exclusive ranking of the Massachusetts companies that have built outstanding work environments for their people.

The 80 companies honored in 2023 range in size and industry, with winners from the technology sector, retail industry, health care space, commercial real estate, and more.

“It’s a great privilege to be acknowledged as a best place to work by our employees for the fifth consecutive year,” said Derek McKinley, President of JOHNLEONARD. “Thank you to our incredible team members that made this award possible! And congratulations to all of the other honorees.”

“The companies that comprise this year’s Best Places to Work are among the most diverse in the decades we’ve been doing this program,” said Carolyn Jones, Market President and Publisher of the Boston Business Journal. “Their commitment to teamwork, employee engagement, flexibility, and trust are the model to which the region’s businesses look for inspiration.”

The 215 businesses that met the criteria for office location and size participated in employee-engagement surveys distributed by Business Journal partner Quantum Workplace. Employees were asked to rate their work environment, work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, compensation, and benefits.

Based on the results of those surveys, businesses were assigned a score out of 100 percent and ranked by Quantum. The top-rated companies are listed in five size categories — extra small (20 to 49 employees), small (50 to 99 employees), medium (100 to 249 employees), large (250 to 499 employees), and extra-large (500 or more).
