Herb's Letter - January 2018

The 2017 Top Places to Work

Top Places to Work 2017I’m so proud to share with you that The Herb Chambers Companies has been recognized, for the 9th year in a row, by The Boston Globe as one of the “Top Places to Work” in Massachusetts! I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to our wonderful team; without you this would not be possible. We also wouldn’t be in this position without all of our valued customers. Without your confidence and trust in us as your dealer, we would not be here after 31 years.

Winners of the “Top Places to Work” are named in four categories, based on number of employees: small (50-99 employees); medium (100-249); large (250-999); and largest (1,000 or more). This year we ranked #8 in the, “Largest Size Companies.”  I’m so happy to know that our team feels better than “most” about their careers. I know that we are far from perfect, but closer by far, than most. If you think about it, the average person spends roughly 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime, so it’s important to be happy!

The Boston Globe reported that this year, more than 75,000 workers at 334 companies around the state completed anonymous surveys administered by the employee engagement company, Energage. The survey asked employees about management, training, direction, job satisfaction, and more; the more positive the response, the higher the company ranks. What makes this so special is that last year we ranked #10, and this year we jumped two places to #8!

It’s clear to see that this year’s "Top Places to Work" are exploring ways to meet the needs of not only their customers, but also their employees and I’m thrilled that The Herb Chambers Companies is adding to Boston’s thriving workforce!
