CARFAX Receives Spot on the Washington Post’s ‘Top Workplace’ List for the Seventh Straight Time

CENTREVILLE, Va. (June 15, 2020) – CARFAX has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area for the seventh consecutive year. CARFAX is just one of 14 companies to receive the prestigious honor seven times since the award began in 2014, highlighting a culture built around teamwork and dedication to the CARFAX mission.

“The Post’s recognition of CARFAX as a Top Workplace for the seventh straight year confirms our team’s unwavering commitment and passion,” said Dick Raines, president at CARFAX. “Team CARFAX has a mission-driven culture that aims to help millions of people confidently shop, buy, service or sell used cars. This award is incredibly meaningful because it’s based on the feedback from Team CARFAX. We’ve grown that team significantly in recent years, and it’s critical we continue to invest in it and our unique work environment.”

CARFAX has been a staple of the Northern Virginia business community for more than 30 years. The expert in vehicle history since 1984, CARFAX is a leader in consumer-information technology with a database of more than 24 billion records. Through the years the CARFAX product offerings have expanded to include Used Car Listings and Car Care, a program designed to help car owners better maintain their vehicles. Outside the office, Team CARFAX has been a long-time supporter of the annual Bike to the Beach DC program, which raises money for autism research.

This was the first year CARFAX was recognized in the Large Company category. CARFAX currently has 997 employees – more than 250 new people joined Team CARFAX in 2019 alone.

“Now in its seventh year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies that are leaders in the Washington-area in terms of employee engagement and satisfaction,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “We had a record number of employees participate in the survey this year, making it clear that these organizations have made cultivating an atmosphere of support and respect a priority.”

Selection in The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. The full list along with additional content will run in print in a special Top Workplaces magazine on October 14 and will be available on The Post’s site. The Washington Post will also host an awards ceremony in October to recognize the 200 top-ranked companies.
