The Boston Globe Names Salary.com a Top Place to Work for 2021

December 10, 2021

Waltham, Mass. (December 2, 2021) — Salary.com has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 14th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2021 issue publishes online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of December 1 and in Globe Magazine on December 5.

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.

Salary.com was ranked #20 in the medium-sized company category.

“Being recognized as a Boston Globe ‘Top Places to Work’ winner is one of our proudest achievements. Creating a rewarding work environment is a huge priority for us and it’s also what we help our clients achieve,” said Kent Plunkett, CEO of Salary.com. “The way we work has been completely disrupted and I’m proud of how our people have innovated and maintained our culture. They say there’s no “i” in team, but that is flat wrong.  Every individual matters, and without each person engaging and collaborating, you can’t win. Culture comes from the people around you, not just your manager and the leadership team, so my hat is off to everyone on our team who makes Salary.com a top place to work each day.”

Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor, noted, “The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and the companies that embraced that change, and put their employees’ needs first, really stood out.”

The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 363 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.

Top Places to Work online extras include sortable rankings and features such as showcasing companies that are going the extra mile to make their workplaces more equitable and to help employees connect with one another, and their communities, during the pandemic.
