Framingham-based healthcare data and analytics company celebrates diversity, equity & inclusion, as well as community and volunteer efforts
FRAMINGHAM, MA— (May 19, 2021) – Definitive Healthcare, a leading provider of healthcare commercial intelligence, today announced that it has been named a Best Place to Work in Massachusetts, in the category of large companies, by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ). This award is the fifth consecutive year the company has been recognized as one of the best places to work in the state, after ranking 7th in 2020, 1st in 2019, 5th in 2018, and 4th in 2017.
"As we celebrate our company's 10th anniversary this year, we're extremely grateful for the positive, high-energy colleagues who are the heart and soul of this company," said Jason Krantz, CEO and founder of Definitive Healthcare. "Even with the pivot to remote work, we’ve successfully sustained our tight-knit company culture and expanded our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. This recognition by Boston Business Journal is another affirmation that we’re making Definitive Healthcare a better place to work every single day."
Definitive Healthcare's collaborative culture is driven by employees who share a passion for improving the healthcare ecosystem, enjoy giving back to the local community, and value diversity and inclusion. The company operates with an open-door policy, encouraging employees at all levels to share ideas with senior management. To support continued career advancement, all employees have unlimited access to Definitive University 2.0, the company's in-house training series.
One of the hallmarks of Definitive Healthcare’s culture is its commitment to its community service outreach program, DefinitiveCares, which enables employees to positively impact the communities in which they live.
DefinitiveCares provides opportunities for employees to work with their choice of more than 40 charitable organizations, supporting causes from hunger and homelessness to healthcare, LGBTQ+ issues, racial justice, women's initiatives, and more. In the first quarter of 2021, nearly 70% of employees participated in a DefinitiveCares event, ranging from fundraising for Texans impacted by the February winter storms to a bingo night that raised money for the Animal Rescue League.
Definitive Healthcare also excels in its commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI). At the center of these efforts are Definitive Healthcare's affinity groups, a grassroots employee-led effort. With affinity groups for women's empowerment, LGBTQ+, Black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), and working parents, the company provides a range of opportunities for employees to support each other and enable greater education companywide through training, events, and speaker series.
Definitive Healthcare has also made strides to improve employee cultural competency. In 2020, every employee participated in a cross-functional DEI foundations training class that included a focus on unconscious bias. Within the past year, Definitive Healthcare implemented new initiatives to recognize its employees with month-long celebrations, such as Black History Month, Women's History Month and National Hispanic Heritage Month. During these months, the company prioritized highlighting different cultures and groups with guest speakers, themed social events, and charitable efforts.
"In a year that has brought incredible challenges for everyone both personally and in business, it is a true testament to great organizations to be named a Best Place to Work," said BBJ's Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones. "We congratulate all of our honorees and look forward to learning from them on how to create and sustain outstanding workplaces."
Definitive Healthcare hired more than 100 employees in 2020 and is still growing rapidly. The company has open roles across the organization and is seeking talented individuals at all levels to join its award-winning team.
