If you picked up this week’s Washington Post, you’ve read the great news! Vocus has been named among the Top Workplaces in the area by The Washington Post! Vocus is among winning companies that received the highest ratings from their employees based on a survey conducted by independent research firm WorkplaceDynamics, LLP.
“The company’s headquarters in Beltsville is designed to resemble a small city, complete with cafes, a radio station, clock tower and bookstore,” said The Washington Post reporter Sarah Halzack in her article highlighting evolving workplace culture in DC. “Health and wellness amenities are central to the company. An annual fair provides employees with free health screenings. There’s also an on-site gym and basketball court, and a spa where employees can slip away for some needed rest and relaxation.”
Followers of our Employer Brand are very familiar with the perks of being a Vocus employee at this point, but the recognition for our teams here is very special. We won this award because of our employees and it is a true testament to the hard work we put in each day. Our industry-leading people are what make our employee experience so rewarding.
“The productivity of our people is entirely related to the experience they have at work,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Holly Paul in an interview given to The Washington Post. “That’s why creating Vocus Town and building this culture was always so important to us.”
Vocus was honored alongside other recipients at an awards gala on June 19, 2014. Senior Social Media Manager Stacey Miller, myself, Marketing Manager Channing Muller, and Social PR Manager Adrienne Sheares represented Vocus at the Awards Gala on June 19. The complete list of Top Workplace winners was published in The Washington Post on June 22, 2014.
Congratulations to all Vocus employees! This is a great award for Vocus as an employer in the DC region and we couldn’t have done it without you!
