Acquia has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 13th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2020 issue published online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of November 19 and in Globe Magazine on November 22.
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 and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.
Acquia was ranked one of the top large employers in Massachusetts.
“At Acquia, our mission is to deliver the open, universal platform that empowers marketers and developers to create the world’s greatest digital experiences. However, none of this would be possible without our people,” said Heather Hartford, chief people officer at Acquia. “Our global, people-first culture is our greatest strength, and we are inspired by the amazing work that the Acquia team does every day. We are proud of the diverse perspectives that our team brings to Acquia, as well as our inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment.”

Acquia’s core DNA tenets act as the foundation for how the team operates and have created a culture of ownership, creativity, and respect that has sustained since the company’s founding in 2007. The company is passionate about giving back to the communities in which its employees live and work, as well as to organizations supporting those in need. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Acquia’s primary concern has been the health and wellbeing of every employee and their families. The global company’s strong sense of community and connection has played an important role in adapting to the many challenges of 2020.
“This was a particularly challenging year to be a great place to work, and the companies that made our list went above and beyond to keep their employees safe, engaged, and cared for,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “From offering help with childcare to making the workplace more equitable to holding virtual talent shows, these employers showed that the best get better in crisis.”
