RADNOR, Pa., March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN) announced today that it has been recognized by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group as one of the 2011 Best Places to Work in Virginia in the Large Employers category (more than 250 employees).
This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, which benefit the state's economy and its work force. Last fall, the Brandywine Virginia regional offices participated in the two-part survey process to nominate the Company. The first part consisted of evaluating the Company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking.
"We are extremely delighted to have been recognized in this first annual program for Best Places to Work in Virginia," said William D. Redd, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Richmond Region. "Brandywine's success is due to the contribution made by our employees on a daily basis. Their constant hard work, dedication and commitment have helped to create a strong culture that recognizes individual excellence, creative persistence and commitment to the Company's mission of providing extraordinary work environments."
Bob Wiberg, Executive Vice President and Senior Managing Director for the Metro Washington D.C. Region added, "We take a great deal of pride in our properties and our people. Brandywine has earned a reputation as an excellent landlord in this market and this is a reflection of the talent, effort and teamwork exhibited by our employees every day. They are at the core of our continued success in this very competitive marketplace."
