We are so pleased to announce that we have been recently named one of Frederick’s Top 50 Workplaces by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development (OED)!

To develop the list, OED identified a variety of data points that are important to economic development, such as the number of Frederick-based jobs, local property taxes paid, how many square feet the business occupies in the county, and how long the company has been in business. Final selections were made on the 132 nominees’ responses to questions regarding employee benefits, median salaries, community involvement, work environment, growth opportunities, and work-life balance.
