Commonwealth Financial Network® Ranked a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts Nine Years Running

Waltham, MA (November 21, 2016)—For the ninth consecutive year, Commonwealth Financial Network® has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. Overall, Commonwealth was honored as the #12 best place to work among large-size* firms. Commonwealth is part of an exclusive group of Massachusetts companies that has earned a spot every year since the Globe introduced its Top Places list.

“To be named a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts for the ninth consecutive year is truly an honor,” said Kate Creagh, managing principal, human resources, at Commonwealth. “We pride ourselves on investing in our employees and offering a truly nurturing environment where everyone can thrive. From our extensive professional development course offering; to giving back opportunities through Commonwealth Cares, our 501(c)(3) charitable organization; to our unique Sunday River Club perk for tenured employees, we continue to differentiate ourselves through thoughtful actions that impact the livelihood of the Commonwealth community.”

Creagh added, “In 2016, we launched the commonWELL campaign, our latest offering to help employees connect with their own well-being through various organized events inspiring nutritional, physical, and emotional wellness. Feedback and participation have been remarkably positive. The success of our corporate campaigns reinforces our commitment to finding new ways to demonstrate how we value those who make up our Top Place to Work company.”

The Top Places to Work ranking recognizes companies across the state based on employee opinions on six key factors related to employee satisfaction: company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits. Private companies, nonprofits, and publicly held businesses were included in the analysis.

In all, Commonwealth has been recognized 35 times as a Best Place to Work by top publications, including the Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal, San Diego Business Journal, and San Diego Union-Tribune, as well as by the IT industry’s leading publication, Computerworld.

*Large-size is defined as companies with between 250 and 999 employees in Massachusetts.
