The Boston Globe Names WilmerHale to Globe 100’s Top Places to Work 2009

News
WilmerHale has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the second annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The firm was ranked 98th on The Globe 100’s Top Places to Work 2009 overall list, and 34th on the top midsized employers list. The Globe 100’s Top Places to Work 2009 magazine was published in the Sunday Globe on November 8. Online, the report can be found at www.boston.com/topworkplaces.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 22-year-old Globe 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Massachusetts, the Top Places to Work recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics. Private companies and nonprofits as well as publicly-held businesses were included in the analysis.

"We are honored to be included in the Globe's Top Places to Work list,” says Co-Managing Partner Bill Lee. “Our goal as a firm is to create an environment where everyone’s contributions are valued, and where everyone counts and knows that they do. This recognition is a sign that we are on the right track.”

The publisher of The Boston Globe Steve Ainsley stated, “The companies included in the Globe 100’s Top Places to Work have succeeded in creating a positive workplace for their employees in the midst of the uncertainties of the general economy. I congratulate each of them for an outstanding accomplishment.”

To qualify for the Globe 100’s Top Places to Work, a company must have more than 100 employees in Massachusetts. Nearly 1,000 qualified companies accepted an invitation to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
