IPA Recognized as One of The Washington Post Top Workplaces

Independent Project Analysis (IPA) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of The Washington Post Top Workplaces.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement that conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States.

The Washington Post references several reasons why IPA is recognized as one of the Washington, D.C. area’s Top Workplaces. IPA fully covers health care premiums for all employees and their family members. The company actively supports a number of local charities, including the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program, Habitat for Humanity, Generosity Feeds, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Every year, the company donates $500 to the charity of each employee’s choice on their behalf. Additionally, employees accrue a minimum of 4 weeks of vacation time annually and enjoy a casual dress code and comfortable office environment.

“While I welcome this recognition from the Post and from our staff, the effort to make IPA a great place to work for our staff around the world is a journey and not a destination,” said IPA founder and CEO Edward Merrow. “The engagement and creativity of our staff is at the center of our success. Our commitment to stable, long-term employment started 27 years ago and has never been stronger.”

The Washington Post published the complete list of Top Workplaces on June 22, 2014.
