The Boston Globe has released their annual list of Top Places to Work and we are thrilled to see PI Predictive Index® client Bright Horizons Family Solutions honored as the #1 Large Employer for the second year in a row.
According to the Globe, “Bright Horizons employees cited an engaging environment that promotes individuality and flexibility, which has created a deep loyalty among the company’s 19,000 workers.”
The article notes that in an industry that typically sees about 50% turnover, Bright Horizons has less than 20%. Undoubtedly, the company’s high retention can be attributed to its focus and care for their most valuable asset—their people. From a management consulting perspective, having a leader at the top who understands the importance of knowing what drives and motivates employees to come to work everyday can make it possible for any organization to become a top place to work. At Bright Horizons, Chief Executive Dave Lissy echoes this sentiment, telling the Globe he believes “he can get more out of people when they feel inspired and engaged.”
Lissy continues: “It allows people, when they pull into the parking lot, to not leave behind half of who they are…[I]f employees don’t feel they can be themselves at work, you as an employer aren’t getting the full contribution of that person. ”
Congratulations to Bright Horizons Family Solutions for their recognition as a Top Place to Work for the second year in a row!
