The Best Place to Work
McLean, VA (PRWEB) May 25, 2006
Monarch Title was recognized today by Washington Business Journal as the region’s #1 best mid-sized company to work for at the newspaper's annual breakfast awards program at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner.
The award recognizes Monarch’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture. Mid-sized companies are defined by the Journal as those with 51 and 150 employees.
“We have always believed that fostering a supportive, family-oriented work environment at Monarch was good for our customers and employees alike,” stated CEO Jerry Boutcher. “Being recognized by the Washington Business Journal in this way is a great honor indeed.”
Along with sponsors Monster, Reznick Group and Quantum Market Research, the Business Journal presented the results of quantitative employee surveys to the crowd of 600. Monarch Title was among hundreds of diverse companies in attendance, hailing from virtually every business sector. The top companies were selected from a pool of more than 200 nominations.
The company was also profiled in a special supplement in the May 12th edition of Washington Business Journal. Four Monarch employees related their personal “magic moments” when they knew they were working for a special company. These included being recognized for exceptional work, receiving a holiday bonus, having the CEO address you by name after only a few days on the job and the ability to leave work to attend to family matters.
The Journal also cited Monarch’s practice of providing lunch several times each month and providing support for personal development and training as critical factors in the company being selected “The Best Place to Work” in Washington for mid-sized companies.
