CENTREVILLE, Va. –
CARFAX has done “a significant amount of hiring in recent years,” said the company’s vice president of human resources Adrienne Webster.
“Team CARFAX continues to grow,” Webster said in a news release, adding that the company continues to focus on “our unique culture.”
That is one reason the Washington Post recently recognized CARFAX — which describes itself as “the expert in vehicle history since 1984” — as one of the Top Workplaces in the Washington D.C. area.
CARFAX, which says it has been “a staple of the Northern Virginia business community” for more than 30 years, has won the recognition seven years in a row.
CARFAX received recognition in the “large company” category for the first time. CARFAX placed No. 5 on that list.
Webster said the award was “especially meaningful” in the current times because it is based on CARFAX employee feedback.
“We know they value our continued investment in teamwork and a mission-driven culture,” Webster said.
Only 14 companies have been named a Top Workplace seven times since the award began in 2014, and CARFAX said it is among them. CARFAX currently employs 1,006 people, and in 2019, more than 250 new employees joined the company.
CARFAX notes that it operates a database of more than 24 billion records. CARFAX product offerings have expanded over the years to include Used Car Listings and Car Care. CARFAX designed that latter program to help car owners better maintain their vehicles.
The company says “Team CARFAX” outside the office has long supported the annual Bike to the Beach DC program. That program raises money for autism research.
Selection in the Top Workplaces list is based on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey.
Research partner Energage LLC administered the survey, which measured workplace culture aspects such as alignment, execution, and connection.
