Brightspot named as one of the nation's Top Workplaces by The Washington Post

Brightspot is recognized as one of the nation's top workplaces by The Washington Post

The annual award is determined solely by employee feedback gathered in an anonymous survey by an outside market research firm. Brightspot stands out for its commitment to a supportive work environment, professional growth and community involvement.

Brightspot is proud to announce it has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2024 Top Workplaces. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection. This year’s honorees include technology companies, government contractors, real estate firms and financial service providers.

In hearing from our employees about why they love working at Brightspot, a number of key themes echoed throughout the survey feedback. Namely, Brightspot’s competitive compensation levels and benefits package; a commitment to ensuring employees enjoy a healthy work-life balance; work that motivates with a focus on innovation and a commitment to customer satisfaction; and a company culture built around purposeful partnership and dedication to giving back to the communities around us.

To help further shine a light on what makes Brightspot such a special place to work, we interviewed a number of colleagues throughout the company to hear what being named one of The Washington Post’s 2024 Top Workplaces means to them.
