BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JBG SMITH, (NYSE: JBGS), a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed-use properties in the Washington, DC market, is proud to announce it has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces in the region. JBG SMITH ranked third in the largest employers category, which encompasses those with more than 1,000 employees.
Now in its seventh year, The Post’s Top Workplaces highlights the companies that are leaders in the Washington-area in terms of employee engagement and satisfaction. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered anonymously through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC. The survey, completed by employees earlier this year, measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
“The world has changed in unimaginable ways since the JBG SMITH team completed the survey in January, and it has been gratifying to witness how everyone at the firm has stepped up to support one another, whether it be assisting with childcare, dropping off groceries, or finding other new and creative ways to stay connected,” said Carey Goldberg, Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Inclusion. “Hearing those stories and experiencing the camaraderie firsthand, it is no surprise that this amazing group of individuals has shaped one of DC’s top workplaces.”
Added Chief Executive Officer Matt Kelly, “Each and every one of our employees are responsible for creating and maintaining a dynamic and supportive environment, and their contributions are indisputably what makes JBG SMITH the absolute best place to work. I’m incredibly proud to lead a team that has cultivated such a strong culture of collaboration and participation, and I continue to be impressed by the way everyone has adapted and come together during these challenging times.”
More than 3,500 companies in the region were invited to participate in this year’s ranking, and a record number of employees completed the survey.
