Two of the state's 49 community health centers -- Boston Health Care for the Homeless and the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center -- have landed on this year's Boston Globe list of Top Places to Work. The Globe develops the list by surveying employees around the state and in partnership with WorkplaceDynamics of Exton, Pa., specialists in employee engagement and retention. This year, 1,660 companies were invited to participate with 366 completing the full survey process. More than 73,000 employees completed confidential 24-statement surveys, rating their employers according to seven factors:

  1. Direction: "I have confidence in the leader of this company."
  2. Execution: "New ideas are encouraged at this company."
  3. Connection: "My job makes me feel like I am part of something meaningful."
  4. Management: "My manager cares about my concerns."
  5. Work: "This company encourages different points of view."
  6. Pay and benefits: "My pay is fair for the work I do."
  7. Engagement: "This company motivates me to give my very best at work."
