Alexandria, VA – In a press release issued today, Goodwin House Incorporated (GHI) announced that it has been selected by the Washington Post as a 2019 Top Workplace. The top-notch senior living facility appears seventh on the annual list and received a Top Workplace designation.

“The Goodwin House mission is focused on those we serve and those who serve,” said Kathleen S Anderson, president and CEO. “It is a tremendous honor to be a 2019 Washington Post top workplace and a double honor that our diverse and engaging employees are so positive and passionate about our culture and mission to support, honor, and uplift older adults and those who serve them.”

Selection for the list is based completely on employee feedback collected through an anonymous third-party survey conducted by research firm Energage, LLC. The survey measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
