This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

SimV CEO, Larry Root, said, “It is truly an honor to be one of the Best Places to Work in VA for the 9th time! We are humbled to stand next to so many other incredible companies across the Commonwealth. Of course, we would not be one of the best if we didn’t have the best working for us! So, we would like to thank our incredible employees who are constantly making us better every day! To Virginia Business – thank you for watching us grow and believing in our mission and vision!”

Companies from across the state enter the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. The first part consists of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process is worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consists of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process is worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determine the top companies and the final ranking, which is revealed in January of each year. The Best Companies Group manages the overall registration and survey process in Virginia, analyzes the data, and uses their expertise to determine the final ranking.
