At Ovia Health, our goal is to improve the lives of women and families. And we know that in order to create real change, we need to set an example in our own workplace. Helping to build smart work environments that enable employees to operate at maximum efficiency and satisfaction is at the very core of our being.
We couldn’t be more excited to share that we were named by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ) as a 2017 Best Places to Work. Ovia Health debuted at third (!) in the BBJ’s annual ranking of the ‘Small Companies’ category. Nominees were evaluated on criteria such as: work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, compensation, and benefits. While earning a spot on this list is a tremendous honor in and of itself, it’s especially important to us because it means we’re breaking new ground when it comes to building a modern workplace–we’re helping redefine how to nurture a positive, dynamic, and thriving work culture.
Our team members are thrilled by the recognition and, when asked, can readily articulate why and how Ovia Health earned such an honor. We’re a place that puts its people first: “to me, the ‘best place’ is a proxy for the best people…my colleagues are devoted, interesting, and passionate,” one team member explains, and we are “inspired by one another’s work every day.” Another team member emphasizes the ways in which Ovia invests in its talent, noting that what he has “learned about management at Ovia is equivalent to an MBA education.” Not to mention, Ovia Health is constantly thinking strategically about its benefits, workflow, and overall organizational structure so that our partners and peers can be assured that we do indeed practice what we preach.
We’re beyond excited to be recognized by the BBJ for this honor, and can’t wait to help more women and families take control of their healthcare and start families with confidence — as well as work with employers and workplaces to build better benefits packages for their employees.
