WALTHAM, MA–(Marketwire -05/08/12)- NetProspex, the leading provider of verified, crowd-sourced business contact data services, has been named one of the best places to work in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal in its tenth annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes NetProspex’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
“We are proud to be recognized by the Boston Business Journal as a best place to work,” said Gary Halliwell, CEO of NetProspex. “Creating a workplace environment that cultivates creativity and innovation is a central focus at NetProspex, and employee satisfaction is essential to the overall health of our fast-growing organization.”
The company is growing rapidly, and hiring. Since 2006, NetProspex has doubled its business in headcount, database size and revenue each year. In addition to offering healthcare with vision and dental, a 401k plan and insurance benefits, NetProspex also provides employees with free yoga classes, cake on their birthdays, a fully stocked kitchen and a fleet of Razor scooters to get around the office.
NetProspex was one of 25 companies awarded in the small business category for its exemplary workplace satisfaction and employee loyalty. Over 400 companies, of varying sizes, participated in the two-part employee survey which was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee satisfaction surveys that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors.
“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 companies will be awarded during a lively breakfast on June 1 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal.
