WATERTOWN, Mass., Nov. 9 Bright Horizons Family SolutionsŪ today announced that it has been named the 11th best place to work in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. The prestigious ranking on the Globe 100's Top Places to Work list underscores how Bright HorizonsŪ has always worked to support its employees and despite the downturn in the economy, the company continues to place an emphasis on fostering a culture where employees feel valued and supported at both work and home.
The Top Places to Work list recognizes companies in Massachusetts, where Bright Horizons is headquartered, for their supportive work environment.

The company is committed to making sure its own employees have industry-leading benefits that recognize the great value and professional nature of early education careers.

"It has been affirming and we feel so honored that our employees have recognized us in this way and that we are ranked alongside many of our own clients whom we respect very much for the way they treat their employees."
