Excerpt from CEO Report, 2018
“Our 2018 Corporate Culture Award winners understand that work-life balance is more than just a fad. It is the key to a creating a positive, productive organization where innovative ideas are realized,” said James McDonald, president of CEO Report. “This year’s winners have gone above and beyond to ensure they attract and retain the area’s top talent, which helps keep them on the cutting edge.”
President Urvashi Malhotra leads by example, creating a company culture that values expertise, integrity and collaboration. Great benefits and the availability of flexible schedules help Changeis’ employees achieve work/life balance. Exceptional performance is recognized in a variety of ways, including bonuses, and the company encourages and supports professional development to build an environment of constant striving and knowledge. While having offices in multiple locations can present some challenges, Changeis provides a variety of fun activities, outings, and contests to keep employees engaged.
In 2018, The Washington Business Journal recognized Changeis as a winner of its 12th annual Best Places to Work award. We consider this a special honor because the award is based on an independent, anonymous survey of those who know us best — our employees. They touted several company attributes as being key to a “best” employment experience — including our workplace culture and morale; workplace engagement; strength and accessibility of our management team; employee benefits; and opportunities for advancement.
Changeis earned 11th place on the Washington Business Journal’s list of “75 Fastest Growing Companies.” The list ranks private companies headquartered in the Washington, D.C. region based on their average revenue growth between 2015 and 2017. With Urvashi Malhotra as its president, Changeis was one of less than 12 companies on the list headed by a woman.
Changeis was ranked by Inc. Magazine among the top 1,000 of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This marks the third year that Changeis has been recognized by the magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 list.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment. Industry-recognized Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be recognized, for the third consecutive time, as one of the fastest growing companies in the country. Our growth is a reflection of our dedicated employees who are committed to the success of our customers.”
