Arlington-based Decision Lens has been selected by Great Place to Work as one of the best small workplaces in the United States.
The company, which produces decision-making software and counts a number of large federal agencies among its clients, ranked No. 20 on the Best Small Workplaces list, published this month in Fortune magazine.
Employees of companies on the list tend to trust the people they work for, take pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with, according to a news release.
“Our culture at Decision Lens is inspired by acknowledging the fact that the office is our employees home away from home so the more we can create an environment that makes employees enjoy being at work each day the better results we’ll have as a business and as a team,” Decision Lens CEO John Kealey said in a statement. “Our commitment to upholding these values, encouraging our employees to feel comfortable sharing their opinions and creating an enjoyable place to work creates the foundation for our ‘best company’ work culture.”
Decision Lens offers its employees a number of perks, including tours of the USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier and the Hubble Space Telescope Operations Center at NASA, along with an Audi Driving Experience class at a racetrack and, on a separate occasion, a free pair of athletic shoes.
Companies that make the best small and medium workplaces list can see benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking and higher productivity, according to a news release.
Only one other Virginia company, Richmond-based Snagajob, landed in the Top 20 Best Small Workplaces.
Great Places to Work considers companies with 50 to 250 employees "small."
