SOAR365 Earns 2024 Top Workplace Recognition 

SOAR365 has now received the honor for a third consecutive year.  

Aligning with the organization’s goal of being “best in class,” SOAR365 has been tabbed as a Top Workplace in Richmond for the third consecutive year. 

The award is based on employee responses to an in-depth survey conducted by the Richmond Times-Dispatch and their partner agency, Energage. The responses were then compared to other local employers, proving once again that SOAR365 is amongst the very best places to work in Richmond. 

“We have worked hard to build our reputation as an employer of choice, but our journey continues,” noted John Walker, President and CEO of SOAR365. “We will always strive to be the most respected, and largest, disability services organization in Central Virginia.” 

Over the last year, SOAR365 has taken many tangible steps to improve the employee experience. Those steps include reorganizing the Human Resources department to improve customer service efforts, creating a new department in Business Solutions to provide expanded supports to employees with a disability, and adding pet insurance and legal insurance to employee benefits packages. 

Whether SOAR365 is offering impactful programming or providing business clients with award-winning results, employee expertise is essential, and so is community support. Our staff work side-by-side with dedicated volunteers, donors and community partners to make SOAR365 a positive, welcoming place.  

”None of these achievements would be possible without our staff, volunteers, donors and community partners working as one. Reaching our goals requires a true team effort, and it is because of our great team that SOAR365 is receiving this recognition,” concluded Walker. 

As a result of making the list, SOAR365 was one of just 98 companies and organizations recognized at a celebration held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts on May 15th. A full list of this year’s honorees can be found here.
