CENTREVILLE, Va. (Oct. 21, 2011) -- The Washingtonian today named Carfax as one of the '50 Great Places to Work' for 2011-2012. Carfax is one of only two area employers to earn recognition on the biennial list five straight times.

"I want to thank Team Carfax for making our five-time selection as a Washingtonian Great Place to Work possible," said Toni Amey, VP of human resources. "To walk into work and always see smiling faces is invigorating. You see the commitment to excellence and shared passion for the work we do from every person here – we wear our hearts on our sleeves. Our employees flourish because each one of them genuinely loves what they do."

Carfax employees enjoy a flexible work environment that encourages healthy, family-oriented lifestyles. The company extends health-care benefits to include domestic partners, subsidizes gym memberships and supports numerous community service initiatives. In addition, the entire staff gathers twice a year to celebrate individual and team successes along with organizational milestones.

"We believe that a Great Place to Work starts and ends with great people," continued Amey. "At Carfax, we're here for each other as much as we are the millions of customers we help buy and sell used cars every day. With everyone working together, we'll continue to make a great place even better."
