“Forrester is honored that its employees in Massachusetts ranked us as one of the best places to work,” said George F. Colony, Forrester’s chairman of the board and chief executive officer. “As a company that is now more than 1,000 employees worldwide, it is important to retain the transparent, accessible, fun culture that employees have appreciated during the 25 years we have been in business. I am grateful for our employees’ ongoing support.”
