BOSTON, MA — DECEMBER 13, 2016 — Berkshire Group announced that property management subsidiary, Berkshire Communities, has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, as a “Best Places to Work in 2017.” The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its ninth year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.

“Company culture and the employee experience are critical considerations for job seekers everywhere when deciding where to work. To help, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize companies that truly stand out as Best Places to Work because they’re purely determined by the authentic voice of those who really know a company best - the employees,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance edge. We’re proud to celebrate the 2017 Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards winners in earning this incredible achievement.”
As of the date of this release, Berkshire Communities had a rating of 4.6 out of five stars with 93 percent of reviewers indicating that they would recommend the company to a friend and 99 percent approve Berkshire Group CEO Chuck Leitner.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees between November 2, 2015 and October 30, 2016. To be considered for the U.S. Small & Medium Business category, a company must have less than 1,000 employees and have received at least 25 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
