FALLS CHURCH, VA April 16, 2013 — The Washington Business Journal’s annual list of Best Places to Work is a special recognition award representing the excellent spirit and diverse characteristics of the many top companies across our region. The recognition requires a cohesive team of employees who enjoy their work, are passionate about what they do, and know how to inspire themselves and their co-workers.
The Washington Business Journal’s Best Places to Work process is different from that of many similar awards because the winners aren’t chosen through the subjective judgment of a group of editors or a review panel. The list is based on a quantitative survey administered by an independent company that asks employees to look at characteristic such as team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, manager effectiveness, and employees’ alignment with company goals. The important note is this: The data that determines the Kingfisher ranking comes directly from the employees.
WBJ was impressed with the stories of the employees who work at the nominated companies. The Best Places to Work Awards is an event representing the excellent spirit and diverse characteristics of the many top companies across our region.
