The CARE Award gives companies the opportunity to showcase their support for their employees. Many business leaders believe that the recognition gives them an edge in hiring skilled and motivated workers. Companies have discovered that the self-assessment, combined with the outside evaluation by the CARE team of experts, gives them valuable information about the strengths and weaknesses of their policies. Applicants report that the process was time well spent, regardless of whether they won an award.
NVFS and the Northern Virginia business community see continued support of CARE as a tremendous opportunity to be on the leading edge of change and innovation in the workplace of Northern Virginia. Work and family are intertwined in most people's lives. Helping support and strengthen families is what we do at NVFS; CARE is a logical outgrowth of our mission to empower individuals and families to find stability and self-sufficiency, and to promote community cooperation in responding to family needs.

From Jodi Johnson, President and CEO of Titania Solutions Group:
“Despite the challenging economy, dwindling federal budgets and other difficult environmental factors, it was critically important to me when we incorporated Titania in 2012 that we build an organization that was founded in deep care of people, including our partners, customers, employees and their families. Being recognized with a CARE Award...is something that I value greatly. This recognition ensures that we don't just set a goal to taking care of our team, but actually follow through and accomplish it...and that we take the time to evaluate - and re-evaluate - how we are doing and where we might consider improving or adjusting.”
“The CARE Awards is one of the most important programs CustomInk participates in because the application process forces our company to thoroughly analyze what we offer, how well we do it and, most importantly, its actual value to our team. The CARE Award Program is not as publicized as some other award programs that are organized by publications, but the rigor and integrity of the process and the interaction with other participants have truly helped us improve and expand.”
