Brightspot named as a 2021 Top Workplace by The Washington Post

RESTON, VA – June 18, 2021 – Brightspot, the leading CMS, announced today that it has been named to The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces 2021 list, which recognizes companies in the D.C. area with the highest ratings from their employees. Brightspot’s winner profile can be viewed at TopWorkplaces.com.

"We are thrilled to be named as one of The Washington Post’s 2021 Top Workplaces, in recognition of our deep D.C. roots and commitment to great company culture," said David Gang, CEO and Co-Founder, Brightspot. "In order to deliver next-generation digital content solutions for customers, we draw from being a people-first company that cares about doing the right thing for employees, customers and our surrounding community. Brightspot was built on the idea that inspiring work comes from inspired people, and we strive every day to do that for our employees."

For the eighth year, The Washington Post partnered with Philadelphia-based Energage to rank the D.C. area’s Top Workplaces. The process is based on a scientific survey of employees who rate their workplace culture. Respondents rate their employer on a seven-point scale—from strongly disagree to strongly agree—on 24 statements, such as "My manager helps me learn and grow" and "I feel genuinely appreciated by my employer."

In addition to challenging and engaging work alongside great colleagues, Brightspot offers a number of benefits to motivate employees. This includes tickets to D.C. sports games, a stipend to cover continuing education and sabbaticals after five- and 10-year anniversaries. Brightspot also makes work more meaningful by encouraging volunteerism, such as in 2019 when the company touched the lives of more than 1,850 individuals through charity work. Employees have a long average tenure at Brightspot, and many start their professional careers with the company and remain there for years as they grow.
