Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best – their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50-99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.
“The team at TScan is driven by innovative science and the mission to better the lives of patients and their families to ensure that more birthdays and meaningful life moments are celebrated,” said David P. Southwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we strive to make that mission a reality, we are also committed to the welfare of our employees, and we at TScan are all dedicated to building a culture that supports us all while we apply ourselves to the important work we do. I extend a sincere thank you to our team of TScanners who work so diligently toward improving the lives of patients and families impacted by cancer, while also creating a world-class culture of which to be proud.”
“The culture we have built at TScan is intricately connected to our values and mission, and each TScanner is an integral part of maintaining this energetic and collaborative environment,” said Ann Hargraves, Vice President of Human Resources. “We are proud to receive this recognition, which we view as a testament to the strong, employee-focused, inclusive, and driven organization we have fostered, even as TScan has seen tremendous growth.”
TScan is dedicated to the discovery of new cancer targets and the development of safe and effective T cell therapies by unleashing the untapped potential of the human immune system.
The rankings in 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 more than 90,000 individuals at 381 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.
