This year marks the 10th annual Richmond Times-Dispatch Top Workplaces Awards program, which allows companies large and small to be nominated for recognition of their organizational health.

The newspaper is once again collaborating with Energage as a research partner on the project.

Energage conducts Top Workplaces surveys for media in 61 markets and surveyed more than 2 million employees in over 8,000 organizations in 2021.

The company says its research shows that the core elements of organizational health are what employees value most in the workplace and that organizations with high levels of organizational health outperform their peers.

1,141 organizations were invited to last year’s 2022 program and 118 were interviewed.

87 were recognized as winners, with over 17,000 employees taking surveys for the awards.

Participating organizations must have 35 or more employees in the Greater Richmond Region to be eligible. These can be public, private, non-profit or governmental organizations.

The 2022 awards were presented in four categories – groups with 25-124 employees, 125-399 employees, 400-899 and companies with over 900 employees.

Last year’s winners included major companies such as Capital One, CarMax and Estes Express Lines.

Some of the smaller companies that received awards were Starling International Childcare & Learning Center, Cutz For Guys and the City of Ashland.

Workplaces that participate in the program are evaluated by their employees using a short 24-question survey.

The companies are surveyed from October to January.

Jobs can be nominated on The Times-Dispatch’s Top Workplaces page at by entering an email address or by calling (804) 977-9367.

The deadline for the first nomination is November 18th. The final release date is still set for 2023.
