Emmes Chosen as a Top Area Workplace
Emmes today announced that it was selected as one of the best places to work in the greater Washington area. The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces list ranked private, public, nonprofit and government agencies based on the highest engagement ratings from their employees.
The Washington Post partnered with employee research and consulting firm Energage, LLC, to conduct the survey, and the highest ranked workplaces were chosen based on employee responses about their own company. There were 3,500 area companies invited to participate, and 406 were surveyed. This is the seventh year the survey has been conducted.
The Top Area Workplace awards, which are based solely on employee survey feedback, honored
200 organizations as Top Workplaces. Emmes was selected in the large company category, which ranges from 500 to 999 employees. The list, along with stories about how employees have coped during the pandemic, will be featured in a special Top Workplaces magazine on October 14. The rankings in each category – small, midsize, large and a new category, largest – will be shared at that time.
“This is the fourth time we’ve been included in this prestigious awards list,” said Dr. Anne Lindblad, president and chief executive officer of Emmes. The fact that the rankings are based on an independent survey of employee opinions about our company makes this even more meaningful.”
She added, “It’s a privilege to have so many employees committed to making Emmes a great place to work and to making it a daily commitment to reflect our mission, vision and values. The health crisis this year has made our work even more critical, and our team is playing an instrumental role in supporting the clinical trials that will help bring COVID-19 therapies and vaccines to market.”
