Forbes Names Granite to List of America’s Best Employers in Massachusetts and Florida

QUINCY, Mass – June 6, 2019 – Granite Telecommunications
, a $1.4 billion annual revenue provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, announced today that it was recognized by Forbes as one of America's Best Employers by State
in Massachusetts, where it has headquarters in Quincy, as well as Florida, where it has offices in Orlando and West Palm Beach.
This is the third award that Granite has received from Forbes in 2019. The company was named to the magazine’s list of Best Midsize Employers
and Best Employers for Diversity
earlier this year.
“We’re committed to providing an engaging and rewarding work experience for employees so it’s very gratifying to be recognized again by Forbes as one of America’s best employers,” said Granite CEO Robert Hale Jr. “This award is especially meaningful because it is based on anonymous reviews and feedback from our employees, as well as from other professionals across America who recognize Granite as an employer of choice.”
Granite employs more than 2,100 people across the country who are focused on simplifying communications with one bill and one contact for multilocation businesses, including more than two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies.
Forbes and Statista
selected America’s 2019 Best Employers by State based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered in a series of anonymous online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family; participants were also prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.

The $1.4 billion company serves more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100 companies in the United States, and has 1.75 million voice and data lines under management. Granite launched in 2002 and grew quickly by helping businesses to simplify sourcing and management of local and long-distance phone services with one point of contact and one invoice for all their office locations nationwide.
