Rockville, MD.; February 7, 2020—Ripple Effect was named a 2019 Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation by the annual Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition.

Ripple Effect ranked among the 540 winning companies in 2019, out of 5,000 companies nominated nationwide. Data was collected directly from surveys of full-time employees, and organizations were assessed by an independent research firm based on key measures across categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention, and more.  

“Winning this award is a great honor,” said Ripple Effect President and CEO Amy Bielski. “We’ve dedicated ourselves to building a healthy and high-performing culture that values flexibility and inclusion, and rewards learning and adaptability. It’s especially nice to see that reflected in this award’s results, which comes directly from our people. 

All participating companies receive a complimentary organizational assessment report and additional benefits throughout the year. Winning companies are invited to celebrate at one of the Best and Brightest® event regions. Beginning in 2020, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation® winners will be celebrated at the Best and Brightest® Illuminate National Summit, hosted from March 24-26 in Dallas, TX.
