Two weeks ago, we were proud to be named one of the best places to work in Massachusetts. Thoughtful recruiting, chair massages and free outdoor yoga are one thing, but insiders here have a hunch that our incredibly popular soup & salad bar gave us the edge we needed. Who knew it was possible to make tofu taste like…anything?
That was topped last week, when athenahealth was ranked at #4 on the Forbes list of Top 25 Fastest Growing Tech Companies in America.
The first three spots went to LinkedIn, Apple and Qlik Technologies.
Or as Jonathan Bush, CEO & President, put it in our press release, "Our rank on the Forbes Fastest Growing Tech Companies list demonstrates the momentum that's been building behind our cloud-based services."
This isn’t the first time our model has been recognized outside the health IT industry. Earlier this year, MIT’s Technology Review put us on its 2012 list of the top 50 most innovative companies, with the likes of Facebook, Google and IBM. And in March 2010, Fast Company magazine named us one of the “Fast 50” most innovative companies in the world.
Innovation and vindication of the cloud-based model are nice-to-haves, but we are anxious to see the Top 25 Workplace Soup & Salad Bar rankings.
