CARFAX In Top Five on the Washington Post’s ‘Top Workplace’ List for Large Companies

CENTREVILLE, Va. (October 14, 2020) – CARFAX is being recognized as one of The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area for the seventh consecutive year. This year marked the first that CARFAX was recognized in the Large Company category, and it took the fifth spot on the list.

“Team CARFAX continues to grow,” said Adrienne Webster, Vice President of Human Resources. “We’ve done a significant amount of hiring in recent years, and we’ve continued to stay focused on our unique culture. In these unprecedented times, this award is especially meaningful because it’s based on the feedback of CARFAX employees. We know they value our continued investment in teamwork and a mission-driven culture.”

CARFAX is just one of 14 companies to be named a Top Workplace seven times since the award began in 2014. CARFAX currently has 1006 employees – more than 250 new people joined Team CARFAX in 2019 alone.

CARFAX has been a staple of the Northern Virginia business community for more than 30 years.
