Boston Business Journal honors athenahealth as a 2012 "Best Places to Work" winner
WATERTOWN, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN) (the "Company"), a leading provider of
cloud-based practice management, electronic
health record (EHR),
coordination services to medical groups, today announced
that the Boston Business Journal named the Company one of the
Best Places to Work in Massachusetts in its tenth annual regional awards
program. The honor recognizes athenahealth's achievements in creating a
positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a
combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions, and company
athenahealth was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration
based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of
employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March and April.
"We are honored to be recognized as a BBJ Best Place to Work for the
fourth time in seven years, which is especially exciting given our
ongoing explosive growth," said Leslie Brunner, Senior Vice President of
People and Process at athenahealth. "At athenahealth, we depend on smart
people who thrive in a collaborative environment where they can teach
and learn. Our culture is one in which athenistas dream big,
achieve big, and then flex to adjust to the changes we have made. We
work at a fast pace, and we're driven by a passion to do well only by
doing good. This work feels incredibly rewarding for us."
"Our vision is to make healthcare work as it should---and it's important
to emphasize that we are a technology company as much as we are a health
care company," added Jeremy Delinsky, Senior Vice President and Chief
Technolgy Officer at athenahealth. "After all, our ability to attract
and retain the brightest software engineers, designers, problem solvers,
and critical thinkers while fostering a culture of innovation is very
important to the company's growing success."
The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business
Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum (News - Alert) Workplace of
Omaha, Nebraska. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than
18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires
that addressed such factors as their pride in their company, company
encouragement, support, recognition of achievement, and relationships
with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by
assigning points to each question.
"Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of
cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said
Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "Companies on
our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace
satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises
and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our
results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can
create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for
companies that are about more than just business."
The top 25 companies in three size categories-small (20-100 employees),
midsize (101-500 employees), and large (more than 500 employees)-will be
awarded during a breakfast on June 1st at the BCEC and
profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal. For
