AARP RECEIVES 2018 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD FROM WASHINGTON POST
AARP Ranked 14 among Top 30 Large Workplaces

WASHINGTON, DC—AARP has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Washington Post. The survey is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics) and measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. AARP is a 2018 award winner in the top 30 large workspaces category.

“The passion that our employees have for their jobs came through very clearly in this survey,” said Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP. “They reference collaboration, inclusiveness and innovation as key aspects of our culture. Our employees also indicated that our meaningful work, social mission and work-life flexibility allow them to ‘make a difference’ in the health, wealth and self aspects of the lives of people 50-plus.”

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

AARP relies on a diverse, skilled, highly motivated and committed workforce. To attract, inspire and retain that workforce, AARP offers an environment that encourages and enables their highest achievement. AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, social welfare organization helping people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthening communities and fighting for the issues that matter most to families.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
