Chantilly, Virginia – Integrity Applications Incorporated (IAI) has been named one of Washingtonian magazine’s 2011 Great Places to Work in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. The announcement is featured in the November issue of Washingtonian magazine, published on Oct. 20. This is the fourth-consecutive time that Washingtonian has chosen IAI as among the best employers in the D.C. Metro area.
Top workplaces honored by Washingtonian are chosen for their competitive 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 employees. Washingtonian has honored top workplaces since 1999 and first took notice of IAI’s high-quality work environment in 2005.
“IAI has nearly 350 employees who work in the D.C. Metro area,” said Joseph L. Brickey, Chairman and CEO of IAI. “We’ve always known that be a top-tier company means hiring top-tier talent and putting them in an environment that facilitates success. This honor proves that those ideals continue to be relevant today.”
Winning companies were chosen after a panel of editors and writers reviewed more than 13,000 employee surveys. The final determinations relied heavily on the scores given by a cross-section of company’s employees. Among Washingtonian’s 2011 winning workplaces, there are a mix of sizes (from 11 to over 68,000 employees) as well as industries (winners include trade associations, government agencies, information-technology firms, government contractors, nonprofits, law firms and more).
According to Washingtonian, IAI was singled out for its “challenging engineering work that is rewarding and rewarded.” The magazine highlighted IAI’s above-industry-average pay, fully paid health-care premiums and high number of staff referrals, “giving the company a family feel.”
On Oct. 20, IAI attended the Greater Washington Board of Trade breakfast at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in D.C. honoring the companies selected for the list. In attendance were Brickey, IAI COO Bill Jugus and six IAI employees representing different facets of the company – Felicia Brickey, Kimberly Smith, Jackie Carr, Michael Scher, Steve Zini and Ken Richardson.
