ROCKVILLE, Md., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --The Emmes Corporation today announced the highest revenues in its 40-year history along with significant growth in its employee count. Revenues surpassed $90 million in 2016, and it employed 567 employees in its U.S. and international offices.
This is also the first time that Emmes has appeared on the Washington Business Journal's top company lists. Emmes was the eighth largest women-owned business in the Washington metropolitan area, according to the 2016 ranking. It was also included as one of the Washington Business Journal's Top 100 private companies in September, with recognition in a related article about the record number of new companies on the list.
"It's an honor to be recognized as a top company in the Washington area," noted Dr. Anne Lindblad, president and chief executive officer of Emmes. "Our growth reflects a commitment to building client relationships founded on collaboration and trust. As a result, we're continuing to recruit scientists, statisticians and support staff, and this means even more opportunities for personal and professional development."
Last year, Emmes was chosen as one of the best places to work in the greater Washington area. The Washington Post's prestigious Top Workplaces list recognized organizations with the highest engagement ratings from their employees in a survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics. Emmes was one of only three biotechnology organizations on the list. The company also received a Workplace Seal of Approval from the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) for the second consecutive year.
"What we do at Emmes is support clinical trials and public health research for clients in government, corporate and non-profit sectors," Lindblad said. "Our work and our culture attract people who think about their work in the context of preventing disease and creating more effective treatment options. The recognition we've received this past year is the result of a great team of employees."
We collaborate with our clients to produce valued, trusted scientific research. Our team members at Emmes are passionate about making a difference in the quality of human health, and we have supported more than a thousand studies across a diverse range of diseases since our formation in 1977.
