Wellesley, Mass. (November 16, 2018) – Sun Life Financial U.S. has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts for 2018 by The Boston Globe. According to the Globe, Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.

“We have long prided ourselves on fostering a workplace that encourages community outreach, employee appreciation, and diversity and inclusion,” said Dan Fishbein, M.D., president of Sun Life Financial U.S. “Our focus on a work environment that offers work-life flexibility and career development opportunities allows our employees to bring their best selves to work, which drives our ability to be an innovative leader in our industry.”

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 82,151 individuals at 318 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.
