Washington, D.C., April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICMA-RC announced that it has been recognized in Ragan Communications’ Class of 2021 Top Places to Work. The award honors organizations that are true to their mission and vision, and highlights workplaces that shine a light on their employees.

Key contributors that led to ICMA-RC’s selection include the following:

  • An ICMA-RC Corporate Culture Engagement Survey showed that employees had a profound connection with the company’s mission, as it allows them to directly contribute to the success of the organization and the financial wellness of its participants.

  • ICMA-RC believes that talent from diverse backgrounds further enhances its ability to serve those who serve their communities, and as such, ICMA-RC is dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion across all aspects of its business. In late 2020, the company’s CEO and President, Lynne Ford, pledged her commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace by signing the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion Pledge.

  • Each year the company recognizes high-achieving teammates for going above and beyond their regular responsibilities or have had a significant impact on a project, initiative, department, or the company. Additionally, ICMA-RC recognizes its Unsung Heroes – those who have greatly contributed to their team and/or department through consistent and impactful performances.

“We are honored to have received this recognition, as it highlights a corporate culture that I am incredibly proud of,” Ford commented. “Happy employees lead to happy clients, and we take great pride in promoting a healthy, productive workplace that encourages inclusivity and ultimately helps our clients and their participants prepare so they can enjoy a secure retirement.”

ICMA-RC also received an Honorable Mention for its Plaza Event that brought employees together virtually to build morale during the pandemic.
