2017 CARE Awards Application

To be eligible for a CARE Award, businesses must be located (not necessarily headquartered) in Northern Virginia. Previous winners are encouraged to apply again.

Semi-finalists must participate in a confidential web-based survey of all their Northern Virginia-based employees.

Finalists should be prepared to discuss all information in more detail during an on-site interview. Each organization selected to participate will receive a copy of their survey results.

The forms should be completed and certified by a senior HR official in your organization. The last form will require certification by a Senior Executive as well. Since the application process can be lengthy, we recommend you have all of your benefits documentation on hand as you begin.
