InsightSquared Honored by the Boston Business Journal as a 2014 “Best Places to Work” Winner

Wins Prestigious Award for the Second Consecutive Year

CAMBRIDGE, MA – April 30, 2014 – InsightSquared, the award-winning provider of business analytics software for small and midsize companies, has been recognized for the second year in a row as one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Boston Business Journal.  The honor recognizes InsightSquared’s outstanding achievement in creating and maintaining one of the most positive work environments in all of Boston.  The company attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

InsightSquared 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 by the entire team throughout March and April.

“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.”

“At InsightSquared a key pillar of our mission is to create a workplace where employees would rather be than anywhere else,” said Fred Shilmover, CEO of InsightSquared.  “Our company culture is an integral part of InsightSquared.  The team here inspires me every day, and I love coming to work because of them.  It is an honor to be recognized as one of the 2014 “Best Places to Work” for the second year, especially as a company that is only three years old.”

The survey project was launched in January by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. 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 the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.

60 companies in total received an award from the Boston Business Journal.  The top 20 companies, in three size categories, will be awarded during a lively cocktail reception on June 12th at the iconic CitiCenter /Wang Theatre and profiled in a special supplement of the Boston Business Journal on June 13th
