New England Law | Boston again named a “Top Place to Work”
(Boston, Revised-1/10/12) New England Law | Boston: New England Law | Boston has again been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the annual Boston Globe survey. The 2011 Top Places to Work listing appears online and in a magazine supplement published in the Sunday Globe on November 6.
The law school is number 6 on the “small employers” list and is the only institution of higher education on the total list of 100 workplaces of all sizes this year.
Participating employees were asked to grade their organization’s performance according to distinct statements, ranging from “New ideas are encouraged at this company ’’ to “It’s easy to tell my boss the truth.” In addition, employers were invited to complete a survey on workplace practices. To compile the ranking, each employer was measured according to six factors: direction, execution, managers, career, conditions, and pay and benefits.
“This award lets the world know what a special place this is for those of us who work here,” said Dean John F. O’Brien. “It is not only beneficial to attracting the very best candidates for employee openings but also conveys that we are a community that cares deeply about our work and, especially, about the students whom we serve. Law school is a challenging experience, but I believe that the efforts of our faculty and staff help remove some of the potential stress and frustrations and allow our students to focus on their learning and their professional development.”
“I’d like to extend my congratulations to New England Law | Boston for its inclusion in the 2011 issue of the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work,” stated Globe publisher Chris Mayer, “and for so clearly demonstrating effective ways to create a positive work environment.”
