Company’s culture drives second consecutive inclusion in annual awards
BOSTON – June 28, 2011 – Carbonite®, a leading provider of online backup solutions which provide customers with "anytime, anywhere access" to their stored files, has been honored by the Boston Business Journal as the areas’ ninth best midsized employer. The ranking was announced during the Best Places to Work awards breakfast, held June 9 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Peter Lamson, senior vice president and general manager of the Small Business Group at Carbonite, accepted the award on the company’s behalf.
The annual awards recognize a total of 75 local businesses, with 25 in each of three categories – small (20-100 employees), midsized (101-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees). Rankings were determined by employee responses generated through surveys conducted by the Boston Business Journal and Quantum Workplace during April 2011.
"Carbonite aims to cultivate a culture that our employees are proud of and excited about," said Lamson. "It is encouraging to see that our commitment to our greatest asset – our people – is being celebrated through our second consecutive Best Places to Work award and through our place among Boston’s midsized businesses."
The survey project was launched in January of this year by the Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Neb. 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.
Carbonite launched its online backup service in 2006. In 2010, it was ranked the 9th-fastest- growing private company in the U.S. in the Inc. 500 list, and No. 1 in IT Services.
