Boston Globe, San Diego Union-Tribune Name MITRE to Top Workplaces Lists
Bedford, Mass., November 19, 2018—MITRE Corporation was named a top workplace by the Boston Globe and San Diego Union-Tribune, according to lists published by the two newspapers this month. MITRE has been featured on the Boston Globe list for 10 consecutive years.
MITRE’s San Antonio, Texas, location received this honor from the San Antonio Express News in October, and its McLean, Virginia, location was honored by the Washington Post for the fourth year in a row in June.
"Our employees enable MITRE to help our sponsors solve challenging national problems using artificial intelligence, protect critical infrastructure, take on cybersecurity threats, and improve patient care, among others," said Kathleen Federico, MITRE vice president and chief human resources officer. "They’re committed to our sponsors’ missions, and we’re committed to providing them with substantial educational opportunities, exceptional benefits, a flexible work environment, and a healthy work life balance. We’re thrilled to be considered one of the best places to work in San Diego, and are honored by the continued recognition in Boston, Washington, DC, and San Antonio.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on anonymous employee feedback. MITRE employees across locations scored the company highest on the following three statements:
- MITRE operates by strong values and ethics.
- My job makes me feel like I am part of something meaningful.
- I have the flexibility I need to balance my work and personal life.
“Making employees happy doesn't have to take a lot of effort or money, but it does require companies to put workers first," said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. "Our winning companies know that their people are their most valuable assets."
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, which performed the survey for each publication. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Energage’s survey measures aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution, and connection.
