National Association for Business Resources Names the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation For 2019

For the second year in a row, The National Association for Business Resources has named Frederick, MD based, custom software provider, Orases, one of the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For in the Nation! The 2019 national winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm which reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners.

The Best and Brightest Program honored 540 national winning organizations from across the country out of 5,000 nominations. In addition to honoring all national winners, the top 101 highest scoring national winning companies were also announced, Orases being one of the elite top 101. The elite categories include: Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Recruitment, Selection and Orientation; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Communication and Shared Vision; Diversity and Inclusion; Work-Life Balance; Community Initiatives; Strategic Company Performance, and the Best of the Best: Small Business, Medium Business, and Large Business.

Jakob Hunt, the Director of People and Culture states, "The Orases culture is a top priority and one of the greatest differentiators from other companies, especially in the field of technology. We prioritize culture both in the way we work, by encouraging creative, ergonomic, and collaborative work spaces and in the way we play, enjoying monthly social events as a team. Team members do their best work when they feel safe to bring their true selves to work. Sometimes, that may mean taking quiet time in the meditation room relaxing in the massage chair with the lights lowered, spontaneously jamming out on the in house band equipment when hitting a creative wall, taking time to contribute to the ever changing puzzles, or even settling debates through a round of ping pong. At Orases, we believe that great culture contributes to great work, not the other way around." 

“With the war on talent hitting the door steps of the Best and Brightest, this achievement means even more than it did a year ago. As we continue to raise the bar, these companies rise to the challenge through cultural innovation, maximizing their workforce potential,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.

Orases is always looking for the best and brightest team members that Frederick has to offer. If you are interested in working for one of the best software companies in the U.S. and believe you are one of the best and brightest in your field, visit to apply.
