The Boston Globe has released its top 100 Best Places to Work in 2013, and Newton's Commodore Builders made the list.
Commodore Builders was founded in 2002 by Joe Albanese, and it provides a full range of construction services, from project conception, to pre-construction, execution, close-out and warranty service. The company separates itself from others by having executives involved in every project, according to an announcement about the Globe's list.
The rankings are determined by surveys sent to employees. This year's results show that positive company culture and employee appreciation are among the top factors for employee happiness, along with pay and benefits.
Commodore has an open culture and employees of the firm describe feeling acknowledged and appreciated for their work, while others note the firm’s team atmosphere and the opportunity to balance professional and personal demands as being key differentiators, according to the announcement.“We are honored that our employees’ feedback has earned us a spot on this year’s list,” said Joe Albanese, Founder and CEO of Commodore Builders. “It very rewarding to know our people love what they do. “Their happiness and satisfaction is extremely important to us. We’re continually working to create an environment that meets their personal and professional needs. Happy people are productive and innovative and great to be around.”
