For more than 25 years, the CARE Awards have recognized outstanding companies proactively making our region a better place for everyone to work, live and play.

The CARE Awards commend outstanding culture and employee engagement strategies, including innovative and sustained corporate social responsibility, to create best places to work across our region. Awards are presented by NVFS and are a natural extension of NVFS’ mission to strengthen Northern Virginia families and the community as a whole, given the mutual importance of work and family.
