SmartPak named a top Place to Work

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (Dec. 19, 2008) –At SmartPak, employees are happy to be at work. So happy that they voted in their animal health care company to the Boston Globe’s annual “Top Places to Work.” SmartPak was ranked among the Globe’s Top 100 Places to Work in Massachusetts, joining the ranks of other area businesses that graced the list in 2008 including Genzyme Corp., Staples and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

“We are so proud to have been named one of the best companies to work for in Massachusetts,” said SmartPak CEO Paal Gisholt. “Since starting SmartPak, we've been committed to building a positive working environment for our employees. We sincerely believe our team is the real magic behind SmartPak’s success and responsible for our continued growth. Their happiness is of the utmost importance, which is why this award means so much to us."

SmartPak was also named a Top Workplace by Fortune Small Business and Winning Workplaces in 2006 and was named to Inc. Magazine's list of the 500 fastest growing private companies 2 years in a row - the only equine company ever named to the list. And despite a gloomy economic outlook at a time when many companies are facing impending layoffs, SmartPak is still hiring and looking for talented, independent thinkers who thrive in a hard working and fun corporate culture.

The Globe’s Top Places to Work recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about company direction, execution, leadership, pay and benefits, training and career development and values and ethics. The rankings are based on survey information collected by Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. The rankings include private firms, as well as public companies, non profits and other institutions. Results were weighted based on the size of the company. Online, the report can be found at http://www.boston.com/business.
