Emmes Ranked as a Top Area Workplace for Three Consecutive Years by The Washington Post
Company Also Recognized by the Alliance for Workplace Excellence and Ranked as the Area's Fifth Largest Biosciences Employer
ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Emmes Corporation announced that it was selected as one of the best places to work in the greater Washington area. The Washington Post's 2018 Top Workplaces list ranked private, public, nonprofit and government agencies based on the highest engagement ratings from their employees. The Washington Post partnered with employee research and consulting firm Energage, formerly Workplace Dynamics, to conduct the survey, with more than 2,800 area companies invited to participate.
The Top Area Workplace awards, which are based solely on employee survey feedback, honored 150 organizations as Top Workplaces. Emmes was ranked 20th out of 25 in the large company category and was one of only two biotechnology organizations to make the list.
"We are proud to be honored for a third consecutive year," said Dr. Anne Lindblad, president and chief executive officer of Emmes. "At the conclusion of the Top Workplaces survey, we learned that one of our employees had written: 'I am one small part of a very impressive research community that is making incredible advances in healthcare.'
"That is a perfect description of what makes us attractive to job candidates and why so many people build their careers here," she added. "Employees believe they are making a difference in public health, plus they feel they have a voice in the way Emmes is run. They truly are valued contributors and idea generators."
Emmes also was honored this summer by the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) for its commitment to balanced leadership and the overall success of its workforce. The company received its fourth consecutive Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval. Corporate culture and management practices, family- and employee-friendly programs, health and wellness initiatives, growth and learning opportunities, and a variety of other employee relations criteria were considered in the award selections.
In other recognition, Emmes was ranked as the Washington area's fifth largest bioscience employer by the Washington Business Journal in May.
