Today we are excited to announce that Optoro has, for the second year in a row, been named to the Washington Post's"Top Workplaces." We are so proud to be part of this report, and feel that our inclusion reflects the hard work that all of our staff does to make Optoro a great place to work.

Organizations are chosen to be part of the list on the basis of employee answers to a thorough survey conducted by thePost. The survey covers factors in workplace experience like compensation and benefits, meaningfulness of work, company leadership, and more.

We have grown and changed a lot as a company in the past year, but are proud to maintain a collaborative and exciting culture. Specifically, over the past year, we've launched a variety of different inclusion initiatives and joined the Pledge 1%initiative, in which we encourage employees to spend at least 1% of their work time giving back to the community and provide opportunities for them to allocate and track their hours.

Our beautiful office space atop Metro Center is a convenient location for most of our employees who commute on public transit. It includes a free office gym, as well as meditation and wellness rooms and a bike storage room. We have also partnered with local vendors like FlyWheel, The Dailey Method, SculptDC, and District Pilates and to provide exclusive wellness discounts to Optoro employees.

And as always, we have continued to hone our benefits packages to make sure they are both competitive and meeting all of the needs of our employees. We also continue to offer a flexible PTO policy — enabling employees to take time when they need it.
