At the top midsize workplaces in the region, workers said they love their jobs for a sense of purpose, the opportunities for advancement, and, sometimes, for the empowerment and support from a good boss. Here are some of the ways these workers anonymously finished the phrase, "I love my job because . . ."

I can depend on the company to stand by me.

I have the freedom to be innovative and I feel my work is appreciated.

In our team no one is above any task.

I love the people at SKF and we have a beautiful building that we work in.
