The Boston Globe Names PTC a Top Place to Work for 2017



NEEDHAM, Mass. – November 20, 2017 – PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 10th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2017 issue was published online at Globe.com/topplaces on the night of November 16 and in The Boston Globe Magazine on November 19.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state based on the votes of the people who know them the best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. PTC was ranked 14th in the “Top Largest Employers” category.

PTC is a high-tech powerhouse that delivers on the promise of work/life balance. Employees around the world enjoy an environment of collaboration, creativity, flexibility, and respect. Traditional benefits, such as healthcare, 401K, and Employee Stock Purchase Plan, are enhanced with generous vacation time, paid time off for volunteering, a birthday holiday, and 12 weeks paid time off for new parents. Tuition reimbursement, flexible work schedules, free shuttle to/from nearby public transportation, free onsite gym, personal concierge services, onsite café, casual dress code, and weekly social hours round out PTC’s robust offering, designed to help employees find fulfillment and live balanced lives.

“We are honored to be recognized by The Boston Globe as one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “We have incredibly smart and talented employees at PTC, and I am grateful for their commitment and passion. We understand that a company is only as good as its employees and are committed to creating a culture of innovation and inspiration where all employees feel a sense of ownership and pride in our success.”

“Our winning companies are all in on a secret,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “Treating employees well isn’t that difficult, and the payoff -- increased morale, retention, and productivity -- is huge.” 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 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.
