Macedon receives Best Places to Work in Virginia award for the 4th time

Reston, VA – Macedon Technologies has once again received the Best Places to Work in Virginia award. It is Macedon’s 4th consecutive award, and our 2nd year in the mid-sized best companies category. The statewide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

For the 10th year, the Virginia Business has compiled the Best Places to Work in Virginia list; nearly 200 companies applied for inclusion on the 2020 list. A hundred companies were chosen in three categories: small (15-99 U.S. employees), midsize (100-249), and large (250 or more).

Employee surveys benchmarked 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.

Another part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for the 4th consecutive year,” said Shayla Thurlow, Macedon’s Director of Human Resources. “Our core principles of caring, learning, excellence and fun are the foundation of our culture at Macedon, and we are committed to providing a workplace environment where these values are shared by all our employees.”
