November 14, 2014

Andover, MA, USA – Philips North America is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by The Boston Globe as one of the "Top Places to Work" in Massachusetts.  Philips, which employs over 3,800 employees in the state of Massachusetts, was named a Top Place to Work based on an employee survey that measured six key factors related to happiness, including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits.

 

"Employer success can't be measured solely in profits and revenue," said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. "What matters most to employers are their people. This year's winning companies go above and beyond to motivate and challenge their workers, which tends to encourage innovation and loyalty."

 

"Our employees take pride in the fact that they are part of an organization whose innovative solutions are improving lives and creating differences in the world. This award is a testimony to that and we are committed to fostering a culture where people can bring their unique passions, interests and experiences to work to create meaningful careers," said Stacey Sobek, Head of Human Resources, Philips North America. "It is an honor to be named among the top places to work as we continue on our transformation to become a global leader in HealthTech."

 

Philips employees enjoy competitive compensation and benefits, such as flexible work arrangements, robust learning and development programs, and opportunities for mobility. Additionally, local Massachusetts sites offer a variety of programs that support healthy living, including an on-site fitness center, in-house nutrition programs, and treadmill workstations.

 
The company currently has four locations across Massachusetts, including Andover, Burlington, Fall River and Framingham. To search for open positions, visit www.usa.careers.philips.com or follow @PhilipsJobsNA for company and career updates.
