With more than 300 companies surveyed this year, we saw our highest participation rate to date.”

While the annual list has been around since 2008, this is the first year that the survey was opened up to employers with 50-99 employees working in the state of Massachusetts, making it possible for Beacon Hill's Boston-based headquarters to participate.
