The Kaplan Center was recently named one of Arlington Magazine’s 2022 Best Places to Work.

The awards program and regional survey was created by Arlington Magazine and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize and honor the best places to work in Arlington, McLean and Falls Church, Virginia. The goal of the program is to honor, support and celebrate the region’s economy, workforce and businesses. Arlington Magazine’s 2022 Best Places to Work list is comprised of 10 companies.

In 1985, Dr. Kaplan created The Kaplan Center in Arlington, Virginia, to offer patients suffering from chronic pain and illness a more effective model of medical care. “This award helps validate all of the work that we’ve put into fostering a supportive and rewarding work environment for the Kaplan Clinic team.” Says Dr. Gary Kaplan, President of The Kaplan Center. “Our goal is to provide all of our team members with the resources and opportunities they need to thrive and do their best work. And while we are incredibly proud of the community we have built at The Kaplan Center, we are equally excited about what’s ahead of us.”

To be considered for participation, organizations had to have an office in the eligible areas, at least 15 employees and be in business for a minimum of one year. For-profit, non-profit and public sector organizations qualified. Organizations from across the region entered the two-part process to qualify for Arlington Magazine’s Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, and it also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

“Arlington, McLean and Falls Church are fortunate to have many outstanding organizations and a talented workforce,” says Greg Hamilton, president and publisher of Arlington Magazine. “The organizations on this list have worked hard to implement policies and create cultures that make them attractive to their employees and sought-after places to work.”

The Kaplan Center will be recognized and honored in Arlington Magazine’s November/December 2022 issue, on and in the digital edition.
