Alexandria, Virginia -- Washingtonian magazine once again named The Motley Fool to its "50 Great Places to Work" list for the Washington, D.C. metro area on Thursday. The magazine previously included TMF on its list in 2011, 2009 and 2007. The list appears bi-annually.
"I am incredibly proud for us to once again be recognized among the amazing businesses that exist in the Washington DC area," Chief People Officer Lee Burbage said. "We know that area residents hold the Washingtonian's list in especially high regard. There are so many great businesses in the area, and we love anything that continues to find and recognize great places to work."
Per an email from Washingtonian editor Sherri Dalphonse, "this year's 50 winning workplaces were chosen on the basis of such measures as: generous pay and benefits, challenging and interesting work, great work/life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees. Winners were chosen after a panel of editors reviewed more than 200 companies and some 13,000 employee surveys. The final determinations relied heavily on the scores given by a company's employees."
"We know that our employee happiness directly affects the success of our business," Burbage said. "We work tirelessly to make sure our employees are engaged in jobs they're passionate about doing. It's gratifying to know that we're doing well by them."
A number of additional outlets have given The Motley Fool awards for its workplace culture over the years. The company won the Best Places to Work Award from the Washington Business Journal in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Business Insider also recently ranked TMF the Best Media Company to Work For, placing it ahead of Disney, ESPN and Turner Broadcasting among others.
