This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses. The 2024 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 Virginia companies selected from over 200 applicants and divided into 3 categories: small, midsize, and large.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:  

  • Be a for-profit business, not-for-profit business, or government entity; 
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of Virginia;
  • Have at least 15 employees working in the state of Virginia; and

The second portion of the process consists of an anonymous employee survey designed to measure the overall employee experience – this contributed to 75% of the evaluation. These combined scores were used to determine the top companies and their final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Virginia, analyzed the data, and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

The final rankings were announced during an in-person awards luncheon held on Feb. 1, 2024, at the Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia.
