Boston Business Journal Recognized Jack Conway & Company
When the Jack Conway & Company name was announced as the No. 16 company on The Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in Massachusetts list last week, an enthusiastic crowd cheered the name so familiar to generations of homeowners in Eastern Massachusetts. This is the second year in a row Jack Conway has been recognized.
“Conway employees cherish the open door policy set forth by its founder, Jack Conway,” said Kip Hollister, founder and CEO of Hollister Staffing, who presented the awards in the large business category. “It’s no secret they love where they work, and who the company they work for.”
Jack Conway & Company, Inc. was the only locally-based real estate company named to the list in the BBJ’s 10th annual regional awards program. And it’s the second consecutive year Conway was recognized for achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
Conway was one of more than 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys.
We are so proud of this honor because it comes as a direct result of our team’s satisfaction,” said Conway CEO Carol Bulman. “Our agents, managers and staff members are so important to us. Without them, nothing is possible.”
“Best Places to Work recognizes how important company culture can be as a competitive advantage,” said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. “For most employees, it’s not about the money. It’s about the culture and spirit of the place where they work.”
The top 25 companies in three size categories — Conway is in the largest (more than 500 employees) — were honored last week during a breakfast at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Conway was in a group of well-known companies including Microsoft, Comcast and Digitas.
Jack Conway & Co. is celebrating its 56th anniversary with 40 sales offices from the North Shore to Boston, Cape Cod and the South Coast. The company also operates New England Mortgage Partners as a joint venture with Wells Fargo.
