GREENBELT, Md., Oct 20, 2011 – Gryphon Technologies, LC, was named one of the Washington, DC area’s Great Places to Work by the Washingtonian Magazine. Gryphon Technologies was recognized at this year’s awards event in October.

“We have worked hard to create a culture in Gryphon that encourages and empowers our employees,” said PJ Braden, Founder and CEO of Gryphon Technologies.

This is the seventh time The Washingtonian magazine has chosen Great Places to Work in the Washington, DC area. The feature dates back to 1999; it is published every other year. Among The Washingtonian’s 50 winning workplaces, there are a mix of sizes (from an organization of just 11 employees to one with more than 68,000), as well as industries (winners include trade associations, government agencies, information-technology firms, government contractors, nonprofits, law firms, and more).

This year’s 50 winning workplaces were chosen on the basis of such measures as: generous pay and benefits, challenging and interesting work, great work/life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees. Winners were chosen after a panel of editors and writers reviewed more than 200 companies and some 13,000 employee surveys. The final determinations relied heavily on the scores given by a company’s employees.
