iWorks is named a Washington Post Top Workplace for 2020
200 companies will be featured online and in a special Top Workplaces magazine issue on October 14.
The Washington Post recently released its annual ranking of top employers in the Washington, D.C. area. iWorks Corporation (iWorks) was once again identified as a Top Workplace in the small employer category, marking iWorks’ fifth year on the list.
Conducted in partnership with employee engagement firm Energage, LLC, The Washington Post’s survey identified the highest ranked workplaces in the region based on employee responses about their own company. The survey tests for company alignment, effectiveness, connection, leadership, employee engagement and,last but not least, pay and benefits. In 2020, more than 3,500 companies were invited to participate and 406 were surveyed.
“[The Post] had a record number of employees participate in the survey this year, making it clear that these organizations have made cultivating an atmosphere of support and respect a priority,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes.
As a result, The Washington Post expanded this year’s list of winners from 150 to 200 and added a fourth category–largest–to accommodate the increase of winners from organizations with 999 and more employees. The highlighted size categories are now small, midsize, large and largest.
iWorks’ consistent ranking as a D.C. area Top Workplace can be traced to satisfaction with the company’s culture, which blends work with a friendly and fun atmosphere and often peppers the calendar with events like game days, charity events/fundraisers, and an international thanksgiving. Even now, when COVID-19 has challenged employees to work remotely full-time, virtual cafés engage team members to unwind after a workday.
“iWorks being named a Top Workplace in the Greater Washington area for 2020 and for five years is a testament to the collaborative work environment our team has built through mutual respect, dedication, and commitment to each other and the success of our Clients and our company. Thank You!” said iWorks Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President Jothi Radhakrishnan.
The full list, along with profiles of the winners, stories on how employees coped at home during the pandemic, and breakdowns on the sectors represented among the 200 winners will be featured in a special Top Workplaces magazine issue on October 14 and on The Washington Post’s site. The Washington Post also plans to host an awards ceremony in October to recognize the 200 top-ranked companies.
“As we continue into 2020 and beyond, let us continue and build on our culture of mutual respect, dedication, and commitment to each other’s success and create a workplace where we can all enjoy, grow, and prosper,” said Radhakrishnan in an email announcement to the company.
