Flexion Therapeutics Named one of Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work for the Second Year in a Row

BURLINGTON, Mass., June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:FLXN) today announced that it has been named as one of the Boston Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” for the second year in a row. Flexion was ranked among the top 15 companies in the medium business category (100 to 249 employees). The awards were presented during a ceremony held at Symphony Hall in Boston on June 20.

The “Best Places to Work” program recognizes companies where voices are heard, cultures are thriving, and employees are engaged. In partnership with Quantum Workplace, the Boston Business Journal evaluates employers based on employees’ responses to survey questions focused around communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in leadership.

“We are honored to again be recognized by the Boston Business Journal, and most importantly by our employees, as one of the best places to work,” said Michael Clayman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Flexion. “We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining top talent, and our people are the real reason why Flexion is an extraordinary place to work.”

Flexion more than doubled its workforce following the approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of its first drug product in October 2017, an extended-release intra-articular therapy for patients confronting osteoarthritis-related knee pain, and it expects to have approximately 300 employees by the end of 2018. As Flexion grows, it is committed to retaining the culture that makes it an attractive place to work.
