AARP Receives 2020 Top Workplaces Award from Washington Post

WASHINGTON— AARP has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. AARP is a 2020 award winner in the top largest workplaces category.

“In the face of a pandemic that threatens the lives and health of the people we serve, our employees are more committed and energized than ever to helping our 38 million members through trusted information, advocacy and innovation,” said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins. “It is truly an honor to again be named a Top Workplace as AARP continues to protect, support, and serve older Americans, their families and caregivers.”

“Now in its seventh year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies that are leaders in the Washington-area in terms of employee engagement and satisfaction,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “We had a record number of employees participate in the survey this year, making it clear that these organizations have made cultivating an atmosphere of support and respect a priority.”
