BOSTON – May 31, 2016 – Kaplan Construction, a WBE general contractor and construction management firm providing comprehensive building programs across Greater Boston, is proud to announce that it has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ). The award honors companies creating the most enjoyable and meaningful work environments, based on anonymous employee surveys collected from companies in Boston. The BBJ will recognize this year’s Best Places to Work honorees during an event on Thursday, June 23 at Boston’s iconic Symphony Hall.
“We are extremely pleased to recognize these companies that clearly value their employees and go the extra mile to create great workplaces,” said Carolyn M. Jones, the Boston Business Journal’s publisher and market president.
In September 2014 Kaplan announced the culmination of a three-year management transition. Nathan Peck was promoted to president and Jane Kaplan Peck, majority owner, was appointed chief operating officer (COO). Founders Ken and Cathy Kaplan took on new roles as chairman of the board and senior advisor, respectively. In October 2014 the company was certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
“We are thrilled to once again be on the Boston Business Journal’s prestigious list,” said Jane Kaplan Peck, chief operating officer at Kaplan Construction. “This past year we were committed to providing our employees a new and reenergized office space, challenging opportunities from which to grow and develop, and above all, a balanced home and work life. It is an honor to be recognized for these things as we celebrate our 40th anniversary.”
