Boston Globe Names Virtual, Inc. a Top Workplace For 2012
WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Nov. 5, 2012 – Virtual, Inc., a technology-focused association management company, has been recognized as one of the 125 “Top Places to Work 2012” by the Boston Globe. Virtual is one of only 25 honored in the Small Employers category, which covers firms having 50 to 99 employees in Massachusetts. The winners were announced in the newspaper’s November 4 edition.
The Top Workplaces program was set up to recognize companies that have great workplaces and to encourage all organizations to improve the quality of their workplaces. Entrants were evaluated on the basis of independently conducted surveys of employees, who rated their employers based on workplace practices in compensation, leadership, appreciation, career opportunities and management.
In Virtual’s employee survey results, areas where the company scored particularly high included employee benefits, keeping employees informed about company decisions, work efficiency, strength of senior management, training opportunities and the confidence employees feel about their futures at the firm.
“I’m very pleased to hear that Virtual has won this well-deserved recognition,” said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council, a Virtual client. “We at the Council reap the benefits derived from Virtual’s excellent workplace every day, through the great service we receive from their motivated, professional and well-informed client team members.”
Top Workplace entries were submitted from hundreds of employers in a variety of sectors, including financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, government, education, and service providers. Winners in all categories are posted at www.bostonglobe.com/topplaces.
Virtual is no stranger to the awards podium. The firm has twice in recent years been named to Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. Virtual has also developed many prize-winners for its clients in the 13 years since its founding, including scores of national and regional awards for marketing, public relations, technology, and association management programs and services.
