Best Places to Work in Massachusetts - 2015 Award

Last year, MassPay was named a Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ). This award meant far more to us than other honors for numerous reasons, which include:

  • it was a mirror image on ourselves (company, culture, management, employee treatment)
  • it was a ranking by our own employees, rather than an outsider
  • It was not based on revenue growth
  • It provided feedback on our own level of employee engagement

Why are these things so important to us?

Above all else, we want a happy team that embraces our values and culture, who are excited to come to work each day, and who are willing to go the extra mile for our clients because the work in a positive, supportive environment. Ultimately, that translates into lifelong, happy clients.

Best Places to Work in Massachusetts Is Not a (Won) and Done Award

If anything, this award showed us that building and sustaining our corporate culture, and ensuring that we stick to our corporate values, is not something done once in a while. Rather, it takes work to create and sustain a positive work environment.

This requires an ongoing effort to make sure that we continue to offer a comfortable work environment that fosters communications across work groups. It drives us seek out and recognize team members who are doing great things and hold them up as role models for others. It causes us to identify and discuss business challenges as a company and it reminds us that everyone, no matter what role or job they play, has a voice and that each and every employee plays a part in our success.
