InVivo Therapeutics Named a 2013 “Best Places to Work” Winner by Boston Business Journal

Company has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by the The Boston Business Journal in its eleventh annual regional awards program.

The honor recognizes the Company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.

InVivo Therapeutics was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March and April.

“For years, my biggest concern has been managing rapid growth without experiencing a bottleneck in human resources,” said Frank Reynolds, InVivo Chief Executive Officer. “In early 2012, we had approximately ten employees, and already we knew that we would be going through intense hiring periods, possibly adding as many as two hundred employees in a quarter. At that point, we partnered with the architects and designers at Kling Stubbins to build a new headquarters in Kendall Square and become the world’s most advanced neurotrauma research center. We now have more than fifty staff members, and are still going strong. We hit a grand slam with the new headquarters and created an innovative, exciting, and collaborative corporate culture that has already resulted in the addition of six more products to our pipeline.”

Continued Reynolds, “Fostering employee development is at the core of our mission. My employees know that the Company will do just about anything to support their success, and I’m very proud of everyone at InVivo; they’re the reason we’ve been recognized by the Boston Business Journal.”

“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of The Boston Business Journal. "Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”

The survey project was launched in January by The Boston Business Journal in conjunction with market research firm Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE. Companies were evaluated on the results of more than 18,000 employee-satisfaction surveys. Employees answered questionnaires that addressed such factors as their pride in the company, company encouragement, support and recognition of achievement and relationships with co-workers and supervisors. The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question.
