InVivo Therapeutics Named a 2013 “Best Places to Work” Winner by Boston Business Journal
"CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (May 2, 2013) - InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV), a developer of groundbreaking technologies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurotrauma conditions, today announced that the Company has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by the The Boston Business Journal in its eleventh annual regional awards program. The honor recognizes the Company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
InVivo Therapeutics was one of over 400 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys taken throughout March and April.
“For years, my biggest concern has been managing rapid growth without experiencing a bottleneck in human resources,” said Frank Reynolds, InVivo Chief Executive Officer. “In early 2012, we had approximately ten employees, and already we knew that we would be going through intense hiring periods, possibly adding as many as two hundred employees in a quarter. At that point, we partnered with the architects and designers at Kling Stubbins to build a new headquarters in Kendall Square and become the world’s most advanced neurotrauma research center. We now have more than fifty staff members, and are still going strong. We hit a grand slam with the new headquarters and created an innovative, exciting, and collaborative corporate culture that has already resulted in the addition of six more products to our pipeline.” ...
