JRC Awarded #1 Best Place to Work in Washington, DC
May 18, 2015: JRC is proud to announce the award of Washington Business Journal’s #1 Best Place to Work for 2015 in the large business category. This year marks the second consecutive year that JRC was recognized as one of Washington DC’s Best Places to Work by the Washington Business Journal. Other recent workplace awards include the 2014 Top Workplace Award winner by the Washington Post, and the 2013 Star Workplace Award winner by Washington SmartCEO GovStar. JRC’s recent selection as #1 Best Place to Work reflects the priority JRC places on our employees and the commitment JRC makes to our customers.
Despite the uncertain defense market, JRC has managed a 20% annual growth rate during the past three years. That growth came from multiple factors, including JRC’s continued commitment to our employees and their families. JRC’s commitment includes exceptional health benefits, company 401(k) contributions without an employee contribution requirement, a Metro subsidy, and an employee referral bonus program. Additionally, the company offers a “JRC Academy,” which supports employees with professional development training, certifications, and tuition assistance.
JRC’s commitment to its employees resulted in an exceedingly high retention rate, ensuring JRC could continue to support our customers throughout the uncertain fiscal environment. JRC’s ability to attract and retain the talent needed for our specialized customers enabled JRC to grow organically with existing customers and with new customers as well.
The Washington Business Journal evaluated companies on categories ranging from team effectiveness, trust in senior leadership, and alignment with company goals. Anonymous employee surveys were used to rank all award winners. In 2014, JRC earned its first Washington Business Journal award as a Best Place to Work, and this year JRC received the #1 Award.
“This award is a particularly proud moment, both for JRC and for me, personally. We have worked very hard to build and grow our company based on our core values of family, excellence and integrity. The entire JRC team has done a remarkable job promoting those values as we grew to new programs and new customers around the country. I am excited to see what lies ahead,” said JRC’s Founder and President, Dr. Tony Jimenez.
