Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts

Framingham (DECEMBER 3, 2023) – Wayside Youth and Family Support Network has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 15th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe.

Wayside Youth and Family Support Network was ranked 50 out of 55 employers in the large category.

“The best employers are always striving to put their people first, whether they’re honoring small individual. accomplishments or adjusting company-wide policies to become more inclusive. “Said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.

Additionally, Wayside was listed as one of 23 companies that excel at championing DEI.  “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace,” says Guimel DeCarvalho, Wayside’s Vice President of Administration and Chief Information Officer. “We have been doing the hard work of embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion into our workplace culture because it is what is best for our people and our business.”
