Gaithersburg MD, 2019 – Boland (boland.com), a leading intelligent building technology and energy services provider, has been named a Best Place to Work for 2019 by the Washington Business Journal (WBJ). This is the eleventh time Boland has received the Washington Business Journal recognition.
“While making the Washington Business Journal’s Best Place to Work list is wonderful recognition for the company, it says even more about our associates," said Jim Boland, president of the nearly 60-year-old organization. "Their values and their commitment make Boland a great place to work. We have an outstanding company with many wonderful assets, but we believe our people are at the core of our strength.”
The Best Places to Work Award, a recognition program of The Washington Business Journal, acknowledges DC-based companies that do an exceptional job with providing a friendly and stimulating work environment for their employees.
“Being selected as a Best Place to Work for eleven years is especially meaningful considering the recognition is driven solely by associate input,” said Sarah Heitkemper, senior vice president. “Our team members bring their own skill-set, talents, and knowledge to work each day and rally around common goals that drive our success. We are extremely proud of the fact that our associates – and the Washington Business Journal – say we are one of the best.”
The Best Places to Work results are quantitative, based on survey responses from employees themselves, rather than a panel of outside judges. Employees of nominated companies received a link to a survey - the results of which were captured and evaluated based different aspects of workplace culture, including manager effectiveness, team dynamics, communications, and other categories. The data doesn't lie — these companies are scoring points with their workers for perks, leadership, office space, culture, and more.
