When you’re looking for a service provider for your business, what do you do? Whether you want to take out a loan from a bank or credit union, set up an employee training program with a local college, or figure out who will clean your bathroom the best, the process is going to be strikingly similar: Combine your own experience with those of others, tap any personal contacts you may have, and then hope your research and circumstances result in you having made a solid choice.
In total, the years of experience WBJ readers have in picking business service providers has to be more than 1 million. Some worked out, some didn’t, and always, lessons were learned. This is why each year for the past seven years, we’ve asked our readers to tell us who they believe are the Best of Business in Central Massachusetts. Similar to how you would ask a trusted friend for a recommendation or look up online reviews of a business before jumping in with both feet, the combined opinion of WBJ readers offers you reliable recommendations.
For this year, WBJ readers weighed in more than 17,000 times in a record 54 categories to give you recommendations on topics such as the Best Web Design Firm (Worcester Interactive) and the Best Venue for a Corporate Event (Apex Center of New England) to the Best Staffing Agency (The DAVIS Cos.) and the Best Restaurant for Business Dinner (One Eleven Chop House). Because the companies often considered the best typically stay the best, 45 of the Best of Business this year are repeats from last year.
So, whether you are making a quick decision on where to go to lunch or grab a drink, or making a more long-term commitment such as picking an accountant or a health insurance provider, the WBJ Best of Business is meant to be a useful guide for you to leverage the combined experience of business leaders like yourself. They are all solid choices.
