This week iuvo Technologies, Boston’s premier white-glove IT consulting and managed services partner, won a coveted spot on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list. This popular the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Only twenty-five companies from Massachusetts made the list.
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 389 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then participants were ranked using a composite score of survey results.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
When asked about being honored, President & CEO, Bryon Beilman said, "Our core values are the building blocks for everything we do; our focus is on people. Our people are everything and we believe that if you hire the right people and treat them exceptionally, they will do amazing things. This award validates our beliefs and how we have managed iuvo Technologies over last thirteen years.”
He continues, “The only way to deliver exceptional service to clients is with people who love their job. Starting each day feeling empowered, supported, appreciated and taken care of will translate into providing great service for others. This award was not easy to achieve as there is a rigorous process and analysis that Inc. performs to ensure they are choosing only the truly great places to work. Winning this award again signifies that we are on the right track and provides validation that the way we do things matters to our mighty iuvonauts!”
We are honored and thrilled to be named to this year’s list and vow to continuing working hard towards putting our employees first.
