ALEXANDRIA, VA — Goodwin Living has been named No. 1 in the largest company category on the list of The Washington Post 2023 Top Workplaces in the Greater Washington Area. It is the fifth year in a row that Goodwin Living has achieved a Washington Post Top Workplace ranking. Moreover, the company ranks No. 27 on the 2023 Top Workplaces at a national level.
Ranking on this list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous survey administered by the Post’s research partner, Energage, LLC. The survey measures various 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. Energage’s employee engagement survey is powered by findings from 15 years of research and data from more than 23 million employees across 70,000 organizations.
“Goodwin Living is deeply honored to be recognized by The Washington Post as the No. 1 2023 Top Workplace,” said Goodwin Living President/CEO Rob Liebreich. “In the last 12 months, Goodwin Living has expanded our efforts to uplift the lives of even more older adults, and it’s our dedicated team members who make this high quality mission growth possible!”
