Alkermes plc (NASDAQ: ALKS) today announced that it was named one of The Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work. The Top Places to Work recognition applauds the most admired workplaces in the state based on anonymous employee feedback collected through a survey. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.
“It is an honor to be recognized by The Boston Globe as one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts. At Alkermes, our culture embodies collaboration, respect for all, and an unwavering commitment to and passion for our work,” said Madeline Coffin, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Alkermes. “We invest in sustaining our culture, developing our employees, and building on our total rewards program to attract the best possible people. We are proud of our growth and performance as a company, but even more proud of the people at the company who support the development and delivery of new medicines to help address some of the most urgent public health and mental illness challenges today.”
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 75,060 individuals at 334 organizations in Massachusetts. More than 500 Alkermes employees participated in the survey.
