Virginia companies make Forbes’ lists of best workplaces
- May 20, 2017
Twenty-seven large and mid-size companies have made Forbes magazine’s lists of best workplaces.
The highest-ranking Virginia employer on either list was the Alexandria-based National Credit Union Administration, which was fifth on the Forbes list of 300 midsize companies with 1,000 to 5,000 employees.
At No. 25, Navy Federal Credit Union, based in Vienna, was the highest ranked in the large-employer group of 500 companies.
Forbes worked with research firm Statista to compile the lists. Statista surveyed 30,000 U.S. employees, asking them to rank — on a scale of zero to 10 — how likely they were to recommend their employers to friends or family. Statista also asked employees to recommend companies outside of their own.
Other Virginia companies on the large-employer list were: Performance Food Group, No. 74; Norfolk Southern, 86; CarMax, 135; DRS Technologies, 140; Rolls-Royce Holdings, 152; Northrop Grumman, 153; Dominion Energy, 154 and University of Virginia, 166.
The large employer list also included Hilton Worldwide, 245; General Dynamics, 268; Willis Towers Watson, 303; Mars, 305; BAE Systems, 376; PAE, 380; SAIC, 401; Huntington Ingalls Industries, 402; Orbital ATK, 418; Serco, 455; and CACI International, 486.
Other employers on the midsize list included: Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, 69; George Mason University, 105; Old Dominion University, 185; ICF International, 186; SCRA, 253; and Altria Group, 266.
