Virginia Business, a print and digital magazine reporting on the State’s business intelligence, has named VHB one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Virginia—the sixth year in a row. The company joins a prestigious list of 100 companies from across the State that were evaluated based on surveys conducted with businesses and their employees. VHB was ranked 7th in the Large Employers category (250+ U.S. employees)—up seven spots since 2021—for keeping their employees’ well-being in mind, focusing on professional growth, and creating a collaborative workplace environment.

VHB is passionate about making meaningful contributions to the Commonwealth through the work that we do, leveraging technology and innovation to deliver sustainable, equitable, and resilient solutions. Our employees positively impact communities by providing services that improve health and well-being, contribute to economic vitality, and promote environmental stewardship.

“We are honored to again be recognized as one of Virginia’s best places to work,” said Nancy Barker, Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. “This past year was one that tested our ability to conquer and persevere in unexpected ways. I am proud of the way we identified imperatives and key market trends to guide our course forward and define our focus—leading to success for our company, clients, and communities. Thank you to our Virginia staff for doing all you can to make VHB a great place to work year after year!”

The competition’s application process was designed to highlight what makes a business stand out from “standard workplaces.” An Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey was given to employees to determine what they love most about where they work. Companies are benchmarked on a list of core values: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communication; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and benefits; pay; and overall engagement. Taking a spot on the list of the best places to work in Virginia for a sixth consecutive year shows that VHB continues to be a company who values its employees and takes great pride in their work.

With four offices across Virginia, VHB is dedicated to shaping the world through their work as engineers, planners, scientists, and designers. With a total firm size of more than 1,600, VHB partners with clients in the transportation, real estate, institutional, and energy industries, as well as federal, state, and local governments. Their projects across the Mid-Atlantic include preliminary engineering for Long Bridge—a $21 million project that will transform the eastern seaboard’s freight and passenger rail network, the Norfolk Casino, University of Virginia Ivy Corridor, the Ohio Creek Watershed resiliency project, and Washington, DC’s first World War I Memorial.
