Bedford, Mass. – November 20, 2017—The MITRE Corporation has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe for the ninth consecutive year in the history of the annual employee-based survey. This year, MITRE was ranked 18th in the largest employers' category, which includes organizations with 1,000 or more employees.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—the employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company's direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.

"Based on the survey results, our employees' appreciation of MITRE's positive, collaborative work environment, strong values and ethics grew in 2017 and speak to our collective dedication to each other and our mission," said Pete Sherlock, senior vice president and chief operating officer at MITRE.

Of MITRE’s more than 7,500 employees, nearly 2,000 work at the organization's Bedford headquarters, providing systems engineering, research and development, and IT support to a range of government sponsors. MITRE's Bedford campus is also home to a 105,000-square-foot, state-of-the art laboratory to advance cutting-edge research and development of military and civilian technologies.

"Our​ ​winning​ ​companies​ ​are​ ​all​ ​in​ ​on​ ​a​ ​secret," ​said​ ​Katie​ ​Johnston,​ ​the​ ​Globe's​ ​Top​ ​Places​ ​to​ ​Work editor.​ ​"Treating​ ​employees​ ​well​ ​isn't​ ​that​ ​difficult,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​payoff​ ​--​ ​​ ​increased​ ​morale,​ ​retention,​ ​and productivity​ ​--​ ​is​ ​huge."

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 75,060 individuals at 334 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they're at it.
