Optoro Named A Top Workplace In D.C. By Washington Post

Their Culture Makes Them Who They Are!

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Hiring Partner Optoro, and published on June 25, 2018. Go to Optoro's Page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

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.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

LGBTQIA+ Inclusion In The Workplace

As we celebrate Pride this month, we should also take time to reflect about the practices— or lack thereof— at our companies that help to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community all year round. (LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual. There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)

From the Stonewall Uprising to the United States' Equality Act, we've come a long way, but the staggering statistics around the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace tell us that there is still work to be done.
