Mimecast Recognized as a Boston Globe 2013 Top Place to Work
Mimecast ranked 19 out of 40 medium size companies
Watertown, Mass. – Mimecast today announced it has been honored by The Boston Globe as one of Massachusetts’ best employers in the publication’s sixth annual Top Places to Work magazine. Employees were surveyed and asked to rate the organization based on several factors and Mimecast earned the 19th spot on The Globe’s list of 40 medium size companies.
“Of the factors surveyed, Boston area employees placed the highest importance on employee appreciation, confidence and feeling that their work is meaningful,” said Mark Bilbe, general manager, Mimecast U.S. “We value the hard work and time our employees spend building our company and show our appreciation with extra touches like free lunches and fitness classes. We also encourage employees to collaborate openly with each other, no matter the level, with our open floor plan in the office.”
Mimecast understands the importance of physical and mental well-being and offers unique, wellness-conscious perks to promote a positive and collaborative work environment. Some of the company’s perks include a wellness studio with yoga classes, a fully equipped gym and shower area, catered lunches, a relaxation area, and smoothie bar. Employees are also able to work from home to support their efforts to achieve a good work-life balance.
“As our economy continues to heal, most of the benchmarks for progress are purely quantitative, such as increased pay rates and expanded benefits packages,” said Boston Globe Business Editor, Mark Pothier. “While there is definite value in these indicators, many signs of recovery cannot be boiled down to pure economics. The companies on our Top Places to Work list foster productivity and innovation by investing in the happiness of their employees, which cannot solely be measured in dollars and cents.”
