The Boston Globe Names Allego a Top Place to Work for 2020
Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts
NEEDHAM, Mass. – (November 23, 2020) – Allego, provider of the market-leading sales learning and enablement platform, 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.
Allego was ranked 8th in the medium workplace category.
“This year has proven just how hardworking and resilient Allego employees are. With the sudden shift to remote work, and the increased demand for mobile learning solutions, the Allego workforce continues to face challenges head-on and help clients navigate this uncertain time, ensuring their employees are ready to succeed in today’s world,” said Yuchun Lee, CEO and co-founder of Allego. “At Allego, we strive to create a culture of accountability, customer focus, and teamwork. Being recognized by Boston Globe in this capacity is an honor and a testament to both the workplace culture we’ve created and the level of innovation and service we provide to our customers every day.”
Allego’s recognition in this year’s program exemplifies the company’s mission to help professionals succeed at work and achieve their full potential. Founded in 2013, Allego’s modern learning and enablement platform ensures that sales reps and other key employees have the skills and timely knowledge needed to make the most of each selling situation or initiative. The platform and features within Allego encourage peer-to-peer collaboration and enable professionals to share best practices and feedback with one another—either via mobile device or the web application—combining training, practice, coaching and knowledge sharing into one app that makes learning easier and more efficient for the dynamic needs of today’s workplace.
Allego was recently named an Inc. Best Workplace 2020 and has been a Boston Business Journal Best Places to Work honoree for three years in a row based on the company’s efforts to create an enjoyable and meaningful work environment for employees. The company also ranked on Selling Power’s annual “50 Best Companies to Sell For” list for 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.”
The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 285 Massachusetts organizations. 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.
