BURLINGTON, Mass., June 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:FLXN) today announced that it has been recognized as one of the The Boston Business Journal's "Best Places to Work." Flexion ranked 5th in the medium business category (100 to 249 employees) and was presented with the award at a ceremony held last night at Symphony Hall in Boston.
The Best Places to Work program honors leading employers from the greater Boston area for going "above and beyond" to create an exceptional work environment for their employees. Companies must have a physical office in Massachusetts and are judged based on the results of an employee survey evaluating: communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics and trust in leadership.
Flexion's mission is to advance transformative therapies that have the potential to make a meaningful difference for patients confronting musculoskeletal conditions. The company is distinguished by five core values that define its culture — focus, ingenuity, tenacity, transparency and fun. These values serve as the pillars upon which co-founders, Michael Clayman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer and Neil Bodick, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, established and grew Flexion. In 2016, the company expanded from 50 to 100 employees, and it plans to reach approximately 250 people by the end of 2017.
"We have a remarkably talented team of people with deep expertise and unrivaled passion," said Dr. Clayman. "From the outset, Neil and I appreciated the importance of attracting outstanding professionals who truly share our vision and want to be a part of a high-performing, respectful and collaborative organization. We have worked hard to create and foster a culture that values great ideas and gives everyone a voice. We are honored by this recognition and extend our sincere gratitude to our colleagues who live and breathe our core values and make Flexion such a fun place to work."
