ARLINGTON, VA - The Century Council has been selected as one of Washingtonian Magazine’s “50 Great Places to Work” in 2009. The winners were selected after reviewing several criteria: the extent of challenging and interesting work, positive work-life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and recognition and respect given to employees. More than 200 companies and 13,000 employee surveys were reviewed, and ultimately 50 organizations were awarded as “Great Places to Work.”
The Century Council is proud to serve as a strong not-for-profit in the Washington DC Metro area that affords its employees an enjoyable and rewarding work environment with many opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Century Council is committed to working in partnership with a wide range of local, state, and national organizations.

“The Century Council prides itself in maintaining a positive and productive work environment, where all employees play a significant role in our mission while also maintaining a manageable work-life balance. Being awarded one of the ‘50 Great Places to Work’ is confirmation that the energy we invest in employee satisfaction has resulted in a positive and productive workplace,” Ralph Blackman, President and CEO.
The Washingtonian has given this award six times since 1999; the “Great Places to Work” issue is published every other year. The Century Council is proud to stand among the fellow 2009 “Great Places to Work.”
