Knight Point Systems Named a Great Place to Work in the DC Area by Washingtonian for 2015

October 22, 2015 – Reston, VA – Washingtonian — the premier lifestyle magazine for the DC Metro area — recently named Knight Point Systems one of its Great Places to Work for 2015. The award is based on a wide range of metrics, including an organization’s average pay and benefits, work/life balance, professional development opportunities and contribution to the larger community. Being named a Great Place to Work recognizes Knight Point’s ongoing commitment to its team, and its drive to create a positive, supportive work environment for all staff.

About the Award
Washingtonian magazine publishes its list of Great Places to Work in the DC Area every other year. The award dates back to 1999 and recognizes 50 unique employers each time it is released. Businesses on the list range from small boutique firms to major corporations employing more than 48,000 individuals. The list crosses industries and sectors, recognizing government agencies and contractors, IT firms, nonprofits and more. Due to the diversity of businesses represented, the list is unranked — winners encompass the best 50 applicants, but they are not listed in any order.
Winners are determined after a comprehensive review of more than 200 applications and 10,000 employee surveys. Key criteria for selection include the scores awarded to each company by their own staff, as well as the magazine’s own independent research and fact-checking. As a result, the list heavily reflects both the reputation and the working culture of winning organizations.
