PENTA Ranked in the Top Three Best Places to Work in MetroWest

WESTBOROUGH _ PENTA Communications, Inc. has been named one of the Top Three Best Places to Work in the MetroWest Daily News’ 2020 Best of the Best MetroWest Awards. 

Write-in nominations were submitted by MetroWest Daily News readers to recognize deserving businesses in ten different categories and in over 150 subcategories. The leading businesses were then narrowed down to the top five, and over 121,500 online votes were cast to determine the top three finalists for each award. 

Stakes were high, as business and economic development continued to flourish throughout the 495/MetroWest region, which boasts an average of 370,210 jobs stretching across 35 communities in Worcester, Middlesex, and Norfolk counties, according to a 2020 report from the 495/MetroWest Partnership and Public Policy Center at UMass Dartmouth, citing 5.1% growth from 2001. This thriving Massachusetts regional hotspot is home to several top growth industries and corporate enterprise headquarters, like TJX Companies and BJ’s Wholesale Club, which were reported as the fastest growing industries measured, according to EMSI data.
