The recipe for a Best Place to Work can sometimes be simple. Start with a tight-knit work force that does whatever it can to help one another. Combine it with thoughtful leadership that cultivates a family environment and never reaches for the less-than-perfect job candidate. You can find all those ingredients for workplace satisfaction at Concepts & Associates (asi/166235), last year’s number-one firm on Counselor’s list.

Family atmosphere is more than just a buzzword here. Owners Tim and Lynne Hennessy have brought two of their four sons into the business – oldest brother Tim Jr. (right) and Michael (left). And, the owners are incredibly sensitive to the work-life balance of their employees. “Their needs are our needs,” says Tim Sr. “That’s what’s it’s all about, helping people when they have a need.”
