Best Places to Work in DC: American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Rockville and Capitol Hill; 280 employees

A nonprofit that supports audiologists and speech-language pathologists, ASHA tends to the health of its own workforce, too, with exercise classes, subsidized Weight Watchers, cooking demonstrations, and fitness challenges. It’s a nurturing environment (about three-quarters of the staff are women, with an average tenure of just over nine years) where healthy minds are also encouraged: Everyone sets a professional-development goal annually, and bonuses are tied to meeting that goal.

Perk: The organization deposits an amount equal to 8 percent of an employee’s salary into his or her 401(k).
