AARP Receives 2022 Top Workplaces Award from Washington Post
Fifth Consecutive Year AARP Has Been Honored

WASHINGTON—AARP has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2022 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, health service providers, and tech companies. AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins was also awarded the Leadership Award in the Largest Companies category.

“It is an honor for AARP to be named a Top Workplace for the fifth year in a row and to receive the Leadership Award,” said Jenkins. “This recognition demonstrates how much AARP values our diverse, skilled and dedicated staff, who advance our mission every day to empower people to choose how they live as they age.”

“The Post’s Top Workplaces list is now in its ninth year and continues to highlight the companies in the Washington-area that employees deem to be leaders in company satisfaction and engagement,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “Each year, the leaders at these companies are commended for their leadership and collegiality, qualities which have increased in importance to employees with the last few years of heightened transition and change.”

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.
