CENTREVILLE, Va., Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Carfax has achieved distinction from its employees as one of the 'Best Places to Work' in the nation for 2015, according to Glassdoor. Carfax is one of only 50 small-medium U.S. businesses whose employees earned the company a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award.
"This recognition from Glassdoor is a remarkable achievement for Team Carfax," said Adrienne Webster, VP of human resources. "Our team's constant expression of pride, confidence and enjoyment from helping our customers and fellow employees is what makes Carfax so unique. We know that one key to creating a successful company is hiring great people. Another is giving them an opportunity and a place to be great. Every member of Team Carfax contributes toward building Carfax into one of the Best Places to Work."
Carfax consistently ranks in the top two percent of U.S. companies for employee satisfaction. Members of Team Carfax take full advantage of a work environment that promotes socialization and collaboration, as well as a positive work-life balance. For example, employees often conduct meetings seated on beanbag chairs, enjoy a generous paid leave and holiday schedule, and compete in fitness-oriented and team building outings together. On top of it all, Team Carfax shares in the success of individual departments and the company.
"I was very impressed when interviewing at Carfax by the culture and the obvious commitment to the Team," said Mike Irvine, general manager at Carfax. "Over the past few years I've experienced firsthand the benefits the Carfax way brings. As the leader of a team pioneering a new service designed to help make communities safer I know we've got the support of all 600 members of the Team. That's a really great feeling."
In addition to the award from Glassdoor, Carfax has been named as one of the 'Best Places to Work in Virginia' by Virginia Business for the fourth straight year. The company also won the 'Best Place to Work" in 2011 from Inside Columbia's CEO magazine and has been voted a 'Best Place to Work' by The Washington Post and The Washingtonian. Carfax was founded in Columbia, Mo and is headquartered in Northern Virginia.
