I always look forward to reading the Sunday newspapers. It’s the one day of the week that I put down my iPad and dive into the splendor of the print editions of the New York Times and Boston Globe.
This Sunday will be extra special—because it marks the release of the Boston Globe’s annual ranking of the Top Places to Work. For those not familiar with this award, Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the State of Massachusetts, voted on by the people who know them best: their employees. And I’m proud to report that you’ll find Virtual in the top 40. (You can check out the Globe’s Top Place to Work list here.)
Years ago, we set a goal of creating “A Company We Love.” Our desire to do so wasn’t driven by vanity. It was fueled by our knowledge that to serve our clients best, we needed the best people we could find doing their best work. In the words of a popular business book that I first read back in 2000, “Contented Cows Give Better Milk.”
To support our goals, we’ve invested significantly in our people– through progressive benefits such as unlimited vacation, paid maternity leave, and, more recently, extra time off to support enhanced work/life balance during the pandemic.
Frankly, we believe these are the types of investments that every organization needs to make. There truly is no more important asset than the people in your company.
We are delighted to see our investments paying off.Back to Knowledge Hub
