AARP Receives 2021 Top Workplaces Award from Washington Post
Fourth Consecutive Year AARP Has Been Honored

WASHINGTON—AARP has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2021 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. This year’s honorees include government contractors, real estate firms, professional and business services, law firms and tech companies.

“AARP employees have shown their commitment and passion for helping all older Americans navigate a daunting year – from a public health emergency and mass unemployment to age discrimination, inequities and disparities,” said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins. “It is an honor to be named a Top Workplace for the fourth consecutive year. It’s really a celebration of our people, whose dedication and creativity fuel AARP’s work to protect, support, and serve all people 50-plus, their families and family caregivers.”

“Now in its eighth year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies in the Washington-area that are leaders in company satisfaction and engagement,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “Throughout the past 15 months, these companies have had to make quick decisions in order to keep their employees safe while also balancing productivity and efficiency, and their employees have taken note of this great work.”

As a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization strengthening communities and fighting for the issues that matter most to families, AARP is committed to attracting, inspiring and retaining its diverse, skilled and motivated workforce. AARP offers benefits designed in alignment with its social impact agenda focused on financial resilience, health security, and personal fulfillment for people age 50-plus and their families. Through an environment that encourages and enables their highest achievement, AARP employees are empowered to be everyday innovators in aging.
