Monument Wealth Management Honored As Great Place to Work Through CARE Awards

2017 CARE Awards Great Place to Work

Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) selects Monument Wealth Management as a leader in family-friendly policies, employee engagement and community impact to receive its Companies As Responsive Employers (CARE) Award.

For 25 years, the Companies As Responsive Employers (CARE) 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. For the second year in a row, Monument Wealth Management will be honored as a responsive employer and great place to work for its outstanding employee engagement and culture, progressive family-friendly policies and deep community impact.

The Monument Wealth Management Partners and Team have created a work environment that allows them to truly “CARE” for their clients, co-workers, families and neighbors. This environment, which has also been named a “Best Place to Work” for five consecutive years by Washington Business Journal and a “Small Gem” by Washingtonian, involves flexible schedules, customizable benefits, and a culture of teamwork, empowerment, trust and respect.  See all of Monument Wealth Management’s awards and accomplishments on their website.

“I was originally drawn to Monument because of its team-centric culture and the work-life balance afforded by the flexibility and generosity of our co-founders,” states Financial Planning Associate, Emily Harper. She goes on to say that “the entire team is mutually invested in the long-term success of Monument, one another, our clients, and our community” and the Team is “empowered to always find a better way!”

Brand Manager, Brittany Dewberry greatly values the passion that the Team has for community service and giving back. She explains that “at Monument, we support our community in all different ways, from sponsoring galas and charity events to hosting free online sports brackets for which the winners choose a charity to receive a Monument donation.  Around the holidays, we participate in programs like Adopt-A-Family and Toys for Tots, and each Team Member gets to select a charity to receive a donation from Monument. We even get to take time off work for volunteer projects that are important to us. Monument has a very special Team culture centered on helping people.”  See all the ways Monument Wealth Management is involved in their community.

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.

“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.”

Awards will be presented at the 25th Annual CARE Awards Breakfast, held Friday, November 17, 2017, at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. To commemorate this anniversary year, NVFS has a special panel of industry leaders to inspire business and workplace evolution in the years ahead.
