The Washington Post Names ThunderCat Technology a 2021 Top Washington-Area Workplace
Reston, VA June 23, 2021 – ThunderCat Technology 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.
“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.”
CEO Tom Deierlein commented on the honor: “This company’s leaders work very hard to make sure everyone feels that they belong, are valued, and acknowledged for their efforts and successes. This year we had to work twice as hard to just feel connected while separated. Even though we are a technology company, during this crisis our mantra was definitely people first. Each person had a unique health and family situation. Each person had a unique reaction to the pandemic. Many of us went to teacher’s aide first and real job second. It was a year where we all had to revisit and appreciate the true priorities in life – family and friends. Here at ThunderCat we try to be a ‘work family’ and we tried hard to be ‘friends’ for those that were having a hard time navigating. It was important for folks to know that there were people they could talk to, zoom with and just listen – no judgements. We are friends with shared values, that genuinely respect each other, and trust our teammates to get their job done as we all work hard toward common goals to fulfill our purpose. In the office or remote.”
The Washington Post hosted a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, June 17 to recognize the top-ranked companies. For more about The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces and to see the full list of this year’s honorees, visit https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2021/business/top-workplaces/.
