May 6, 2011 - Boston, MA - For the second consecutive year, The Boston Business Journal has named Kaspersky Lab one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its ninth annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes Kaspersky Lab’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Kaspersky Lab was one of over 320 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout April.
The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.
The top 25 companies in three size categories — small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) — will be awarded during a lively breakfast on June 9th at the BCEC and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal published on June 10, 2011.
Steve Orenberg, Chief Sales Officer
“It is a tremendous honor to be included as a “Best Places to Work” for the second year in a row. We started as a company with three employees, and a few years later, more than 150 employees work for Kaspersky Lab Americas. The talented, dedicated individuals from the Boston area that have joined our team over the years are who make this success possible, and I’m very proud of what we have accomplished together.”
Chris McIntosh, Publisher
Boston Business Journal
“Our Best Places to Work event recognizes the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage. 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. 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.”
