Revealed: Frederick's Top 50 Workplaces

Frederick’s Top 50 Workplaces were revealed today in a special publication of the January 2020 edition of Frederick Magazine. 

“These companies are a major reason Frederick County continues to be a great place to live, work, and raise a family.  They have made it clear that their most important asset is their workforce, and they contribute to the success and overall health of Frederick County,” said County Executive Jan Gardner and OED’s Executive Director Helen Propheter in a joint message.

OED received 132 nominations for Frederick County’s Top 50 Workplaces, and were selected based on powerful employee testimonials and each workplace’s unique strategies to attract and retain top talent. The final list also included criteria based on the company’s individual responses on the following:

  • Company’s median salary
  • Benefits offered to employees
  • Community involvement
  • Work environment
  • Professional growth opportunities
  • Work-life balance

In addition to this criteria, Frederick Magazine’s writers further explore what it means to work for a Top Workplace with four articles.  Health at Work, takes a look at what companies are doing to put the health of their employees first.  Ping Pong Anyone? reveals the companies with workspaces that inspire creativity and improve productivity while remaining functional.  More Than a Paycheck explores companies that offer intangible benefits such as sense of purpose, advancement opportunities, work-life balance and autonomy.  Finally, the companies that give back to the community and inspire their employees to do the same are highlighted in Setting an Example.
