The Washington Post is on the hunt for the top places to work in greater Washington, and we need your help.

We are looking for people to nominate worthy workplaces so we can survey their employees to determine which employers should be recognized in an upcoming Top Workplaces special report.

To do this, Capital Business is teaming with WorkplaceDynamics, a survey firm that has partnered with more than 40 newspapers to canvas 2 million employees nationwide.

We hope to recognize workplaces of all types: private, public, nonprofit and even government agencies. Eligible organizations must have at least 50 employees, and have operations in the greater Washington area. WorkplaceDynamics will reach out to the workplaces and ask to survey their employees. The survey is relatively straightforward — employees will be asked to respond to 22 statements.

Those employers that score highest — and meet national benchmarks — will make The Washington Post’s list of top places to work.

The nomination deadline is Feb. 21. The surveys will take place starting in mid-January and run through mid-April, 2014.

You can nominate your workplace at or by calling (202) 417-3866.
