Broad earns “top” honor

Nicole Davis, November 5th, 2010 | Filed under

Some incredible news today in the Boston Globe: the Broad Institute is among the “Top Places to Work” in Massachusetts in 2010.

The news, featured today on, names the top 100 employers in the state based on surveys of employees from almost 1,200 organizations. The Globe’s analysis included private companies, non-profits, and publicly-held businesses, and evaluated these organizations according to several criteria: company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics.

“Each of the companies included in the Top Places to Work 2010 deserve recognition for creating a positive workplace for their employees,” said Chris Mayer, publisher of the Boston Globe. “Their accomplishment adds to the vitality of this state’s business environment.”

With the Broad’s recent transition to a permanent 501(c)3 non-profit, this year marks the institute’s first year of eligibility for such a distinction.
