Washington Post Names REI Systems as a Top Workplace for the Sixth Time 
June 20, 2022

Sterling, VA  – REI Systems (REI), a leading provider of technology solutions to the public sector, was just named a 2022 Top Workplace by the Washington Post.  This is the sixth time we have received this recognition, and is perhaps the most rewarding, given the challenges of the COVID pandemic combined with the company’s rapid growth over the past several years. This award recognizes that REI Puts Employees First.  We care deeply about our people. REI intentionally and purposefully invests in professional growth well beyond the industry standard. REI offers formal upskilling and informal coaching to all our people, creating a professional home where people can develop their skills and grow their careers. 

 Detailed survey data provides some key reasons our employees rated REI so highly, including: 

 …dedicated to diversity and inclusiveness (96th percentile); 

…doing things efficiently and well (93rd percentile); and 

providing the long-term stability that employees need (91st percentile). 

 When asked to reflect on the sixth Top Workplace Award, REI CEO Shyam Salona said “REI has consistently attracted great employees because We Are Compassionate. When you ask our employees about REI, they describe a caring and flexible work environment, talented and kindhearted colleagues, and a lack of office politics as things they like best about our company. REI is a place where deep friendships are made and sustained over years.  We value being compassionate more than being right.” 

 REI COO Scott Fletcher explained why people come to REI and stay – “It’s because we value integrity, collaboration, and customer service over profits.  We do the right thing for our customers and employees – even when no one is looking.  We call this ‘The REI Way’.”
