Strategic advisory firm recognized by Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) for family-friendly policies, employee engagement and community impact
RESTON, VA – Toffler Associates, a leading future-focused strategic advisory firm, announced today it is a CARE Awards recipient. For 25 years, the CARE – Companies As Responsive Employers – Awards, presented by Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS), have provided insight into employees and programs, offered a forum for innovative thinking and driven strategic changes in the workplace.
Toffler Associates employs just under 30 people, though a visit to their offices would suggest otherwise, given the autonomy for remote work offered to employees. Nonetheless, through the Toffler Essentials onboarding course and mentorship programs like Women in Leadership and Closest Colleague, the firm cultivates a collaborative spirit and family-like feel among its team members. Toffler Associates also employs a significant number of military veterans, and has put programs in place to support those employees’ commitment of continued service in the National Guard.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a CARE Award winner,” said Deborah Westphal, CEO of Toffler Associates. “I’m very proud of our people and our ability to coalesce a group of unique and exceptionally talented professionals around our mission to create a better future. The mission applies not only to the work we do for our clients, but to our employees and community as well. We strive daily to foster an environment that allows us to put into practice our core values of lifelong learning, thought diversity, speaking truth to power and a commitment to connecting people.”
CARE Award winners are selected based on their performance in the categories of flexible work arrangements, dependent care, work/family stress management and benefits and community involvement. The 2017 CARE Awards will be presented at the 25th Annual CARE Awards Breakfast on Friday, November 17 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.
"Workplace flexibility, employee well-being and community stewardship are great ways for Northern Virginia companies to demonstrate commitment to strong families and a strong community,” shares Stephanie Berkowitz, president and CEO at Northern Virginia Family Service. ”Such values not only attract exceptional talent, they provide an opportunity for companies to make an impact on the community around them.”
Toffler Associates earlier this year also was named to the 2017 Inc. 5000 and recognized as one of Consulting magazine’s “Seven Small Jewels,” both of which celebrate firms that have exhibited compelling growth and delivered extraordinary results.
