13th annual Best Places to Work
2023 winners of small, midsize and large categories
This is the 13th year that Virginia Business has compiled the Best Places to Work in Virginia list in collaboration with Pennsylvania-based Best Companies Group.
More than 200 companies applied for inclusion in the 2023 Best Places to Work in Virginia cohort. A hundred companies were chosen, divided into three categories: small (15-99 U.S. employees); midsize (100-249); and large (250 or more).
Best Companies Group makes its selections based on surveys conducted with the companies and their employees.
Employee surveys benchmark companies on a list of core values: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communication; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and benefits; pay; and overall engagement.
