(Alexandria, VA)– Goodwin Living™ has been named No. 1 on the list of The Washington Post 2023 Top Workplaces in the Greater Washington Area. The organization is ranked in the largest company category. Goodwin Living has achieved a Washington Post Top Workplace ranking for all five consecutive years in which it has competed for this honor. The organization also currently ranks No. 27 on the list of organizations receiving a 2023 Top Workplaces USA designation.
Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by the Post’s research partner, Energage, LLC. The survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, engagement and leadership.
The Top Workplaces USA national award is open to organizations with 150 or more U.S. employees. Nominated companies are evaluated based on results from Energage’s anonymous, research-based employee engagement survey that is powered by findings from 15 years of research and data from more than 23 million employees across 70,000 organizations. A list of all 2023 Top Workplaces USA recipients, including the top 50 in each size band, can be found at this Energage link: https://topworkplaces.com/award/top-workplaces-usa/2023
