Imagine Recognized Among ‘Best Places to Work’

Best Places to Work Award

September is National Workforce Development Month, and Prince William Living, a lifestyle magazine celebrating the people and places of Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, invited its readers to nominate their local employers for the first annual Prince William Living Best Places to Work, and the judges reviewed and selected the best. The judges evaluated employer benefits, workplace culture, and employee morale, among other factors.

“We were awed by the quality of nominations we received,” Prince William Living Publisher Rebecca Barnes said. “After reviewing the nominations, it is difficult not to be impressed by the passionate comments made by many employees at these great companies.” Prince William Living is proud to present the contest’s results in this new annual award. “It takes a lot to be a great place to work. It’s more than just benefits,” Barnes said. “Our winners are great examples of companies working hard to make work fulfilling. It’s nice to see that it’s happening in many places in our community.”

Winners were chosen by how the nominees answered a series of questions on the business. “We learned a lot about these companies and the people making them the Best Places to Work in Prince William,” said Barnes.

“We’ve always been strong supporters of work-life balance and a culture that feels less like work and more of a place that people just want to be,” said Patrick King, CEO. “We want the best in our industry to join us and in order to do so, we need to look at every facet of the employee experience. Oh, and we’re hiring.”
