Tofias PC Honored As A '2007 Best Places to Work'

The Boston Business Journal has honored Tofias PC as one of the “2007 Best Places to Work” in Massachusetts in its fifth annual awards program. The honor recognizes Tofias’ achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions, and company culture.

Tofias was one of 328 companies nominated – a 40% increase in nominees over 2006 – and made the top 20 list in the midsize category based on the results of employee-engagement surveys taken throughout the spring.

“Tofias is all about people, and it is our people that make our Firm a great place to work,” said Tracy Gallagher, Managing Director of Tofias. “We conduct annual employee satisfaction surveys and work/life balance focus groups, and take action based on the results. This honor validates that our efforts have not gone unnoticed and we will continue to focus on the personal and professional development of our employees and providing them with a great place to work.”

The top 20 companies in three size categories – small (20-100 employees), midsize (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) – will be listed in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal to be published on June 22, 2007. The supplement will also provide insight into the three distinct leadership styles of the No. 1 companies. From training and promotions to taking a personal interest in employees, these top presidents and CEOs share their strategies for improving morale and maintaining low turnover.

"With the hiring market so tight, a quality workplace truly is a competitive advantage. Employees respond to a flexible yet challenging culture and company leaders who lead by example," said Boston Business Journal Editor George Donnelly. "Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business."
