Washingtonian publishes Great Places to Work every other year; the next article will be published in November 2015.
The Great Places to Work contest is open to any company or nonprofit as long as it has an office in the greater Washington area. In order for a workplace to be considered, one representative of the company is asked to fill out a Great Places to Work application that asks detailed questions about the organization’s benefits, personnel, and policies. (Later, a separate and shorter survey is filled out by employees.) There is no application fee.
