Merritt Group is thrilled to announce that we have been selected as a 2016 CARE Award recipient. The CARE Awards exemplify what it means to be an outstanding organization and a great place to work! One of just 16 local company winners, Merritt Group’s achievement rewards and recognizes our dedication to providing an atmosphere that cultivates outstanding employee engagement and culture, progressive family-friendly policies and deep community impact.

WE WEAR THIS BADGE PROUDLY

We are so honored to be recognized as one of Northern Virginia’s best places to work. As a company, we are passionate about work-life balance and do our best to create a healthy and happy work environment.

Merritt Group showcases this through our Merritt InBalance initiative, a voluntary health and wellness program designed to encourage healthy, active lifestyles among employees. Each month, we organize a company-wide event that promotes one of our core mission pillars, which are:

  • Nutrition
  • Fitness
  • Mental Wellness
  • Philanthropy

 This year, the entire Merritt Group team has participated in numerous community events for Earth Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week, and we have organized employee gatherings that help foster positivity in the workplace. Each year during December and in the spirit of the holiday season, Merritt Group participates in our Merry Week of Giving. The entire organization comes together to support the mission of lending a hand, giving our time and donating items to communities in need. Last year, Merritt Groupers helped five local organizations in numerous volunteer efforts.

On Friday, November 18, Merritt Group will attend the awards presentation at the 24th Annual CARE Awards Breakfast. In addition to being recognized by Northern Virginia Family Service, the event includes the opportunity to hear from local executives on family-friendly workplace policies. We hope to see some of you there!
