SmashFly Named a Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe

CONCORD, Mass. – November 22, 2016 – SmashFly Technologies, the leading Recruitment Marketing Platform provider, today announced that it has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. 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, benefits and engagement.

SmashFly’s award-winning Total Recruitment Marketing Platform enables talent acquisition teams to find, attract, engage, nurture and convert candidate leads into qualified applicants using a centralized management system that automates and measures recruiting strategies and programs.

SmashFly was founded in 2007 and is headquartered at the historic Damon Mill building on the Assabet River in Concord, Mass. In January, it announced $22 million in Series B funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners and OpenView Venture Partners. Since then, SmashFly:

• increased headcount by 78% primarily in engineering, customer success, marketing and sales employees in Massachusetts and nationwide;
• accelerated product development that included the launch of SmashFly’s recruiting event management solution;
• continued to sign new enterprise clients – many of which are Fortune 500 companies – that are focused on transforming their recruitment marketing
strategy;
• was named one of Boston Business Journal’s 2016 Best Places to Work;
• maintained a five-star / 100% company and CEO Glassdoor rating;
• opened an office in downtown Boston;
• expanded its Concord headquarters to 17,000+ square feet;
• hosted SmashFly Transform™, the industry’s first-ever conference focused exclusively on recruitment marketing.

Massachusetts native Mike Hennessy, Founder and CEO of SmashFly, said, “It’s an incredible honor to be named a Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe. I’m humbled that our employees think so highly of the culture we’ve built, which is one that encourages collaboration and values mutual respect, diversity, transparency, innovation and integrity. SmashFly helps organizations market their employer brands to attract more qualified candidates, so we know how important it is to their recruiting strategy when they are recognized for creating a great candidate experience and being a best place to work. Creating a work environment where employees are passionate, enthusiastic and motivated is not by accident. It’s strategically important to the success of our business.”

“In today’s tight job market, competition for the best workers is intense,” said Larry Edelman, the Globe’s business editor. “Our winning companies know that creating a motivating and supportive environment is key to finding and keeping talent.”

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 70,500 individuals at 366 Massachusetts organizations. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small (50-99 employees); medium (100-249); large (250- 999); and largest. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.
