With millennial-generation workers set to constitute almost half of the workforce by 2020 and employers shaping their workplace culture to respond to that statistic, the Washington Post at the end of last month released a list of the top 150 companies to work for in the D.C. area.
The Post tabulated the companies that received the highest ratings in surveys from their employees and organized the rankings by size.
Among the companies surveyed, the top large, mid-size and small companies to work respectively were: real estate developer JBG Cos., Applied Predictive Technologies, a data analytics company, and boutique law firm Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis.
Also on the list was Alexandria, Va. based CALIBRE Systems — a management consulting and technology services company that supports government and industry.
The Washington Post included the company on its top 150 list for the firm’s flexible work schedule and telecommuting options as well as for its philanthropy program that provides matching donations to charities.
Questionnaires — drawn from WorkplaceDynamics LLP — surveyed employees on their degree of satisfaction with work atmosphere, perks and benefits at their place of work.
“CALIBRE is honored to be one of the Washington Post’s Top Workplaces,” said CALIBRE Chief Executive Joe Martore, the president. “We work hard to foster a culture based on values, employee-ownership, and open communications. This culture and employee engagement leads to better company performance and productivity, and promotes professional development for our employees.”
Other government contractors included on the list were: Booz Allen Hamilton, Vocus, ECS Federal, Noblis, DMI, Appian, Sapient, Blue Canopy Group, Tenable Network Security, API, IntelliDyne, TeraThink, Octo Consulting Group and New Editions Consulting.
You can find the complete list in the June 22, 2014 edition of the Washington Post.
