MITRE Named a Washington Post Top Workplace for Fourth Year in a Row
McLean, Va., June 25, 2018—The Washington Post has named The MITRE Corporation to its Top Workplaces list for 2018. MITRE, which has appeared on the list for four consecutive years, was ranked 26 in the category of largest organizations with 500 employees or more in the Washington, D.C., area. The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback.
"We are very proud to be named to The Washington Post's list for the fourth year in a row," said Jason Providakes, MITRE President and CEO. “The results reinforce our goal of being a world-class organization. Our employees' dedication to MITRE’s mission of solving problems for a safer world is what truly make us a Top Workplace."
MITRE employees who work at the organization's McLean headquarters and elsewhere in the Washington, D.C., area provide systems engineering, research and development, and IT systems and cyber systems support to a range of government sponsors and customers to help them solve difficult problems that challenge the safety, stability and well-being of the nation.
The Washington Post's 2018 Top Workplaces survey was conducted by employee survey firm Energage, which specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The survey measured individuals' responses to statements regarding key factors related to employee satisfaction including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, as well as pay and benefits.
"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."
The Washington Post published the complete list of Top Workplaces on June 22, 2018.
