Cassaday & Company, Inc. has been awarded first place on the 2019 Best Places to Work in Virginia ranking. Created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group, this annual award program identifies, recognizes, and honors outstanding places of employment throughout the state of Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The 2019 Best Places to Work in Virginia list comprises 100 companies. Those recognized were benchmarked on a list of core values including leadership and planning, corporate culture and communication, role satisfaction, work environment, relationships with supervisors, training and benefits, and pay and overall employee engagement.

Cassaday is honored by this recognition and attributes this success to our employees. Our firm was founded with the guiding objective to create a workplace that would attract and retain the top talent in our industry and to ensure the professionals we employ think like owners. In doing so and understanding our employees are our greatest resource, we have been able to reduce turnover, and create continuity of service for clients. We take pride in the ability to hire outstanding people with innate skills that cannot be taught, and we build positions around them, but beyond that, we are proud of our confident, self-reliant top performing team who take initiative and pride in their work. This combination of superior skills and an open, nurturing environment encourages personal growth, a sense of purpose and fulfillment which, for us, has led to outstanding outcomes for our firm and clients.
