The Peabody Companies Named One of Massachusetts’ Top Places to Work by The Boston Globe

The Peabody Companies (, a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe, placing at #40 in the large company category.

This prestigious accolade is part of an annual survey highlighting the state’s most esteemed workplaces, as voted by employees. The survey, which garnered responses from approximately 76,000 employees across 347 companies in Massachusetts, evaluates various aspects of the workplace. These include company direction, leadership quality, compensation, benefits, and overall employee engagement.

Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and CEO of The Peabody Companies, expressed her pride in the recognition: “Being named in The Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work is a testament to our core values and commitment. It reflects our dedication to creating a work environment that fosters collaboration, growth, and inclusivity.”

The Peabody Companies has consistently demonstrated a commitment to its employees, providing recognition and opportunities for professional development. Notable initiatives include the annual Employee Recognition Awards Program, the Young Professionals Advisory Council, and the highly acclaimed Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee. This committee plays a pivotal role in ensuring that every team member’s voice is heard and valued.

This recognition by The Boston Globe follows closely on the heels of The Peabody Companies’ recent accolades in diversity and inclusion. The company was honored with the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) Real Estate Management Excellence (REME) Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Award in the corporate category, presented at the IREM Global Summit Conference in Toronto, Canada, in October. The Peabody Companies was also celebrated as the 2022 Leading Organization in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion by the Massachusetts Apartment Association (MAA).

These recognitions underscore The Peabody Companies’ unwavering dedication to creating a workplace culture that values and actively promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion.
