Alexandria, VA (October 15, 2020) – Goodwin House Incorporated (GHI) has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area, and ranked #10 in the large company category on the list of organizations receiving a Top Workplace designation. This is the second year in a row that Goodwin House received this honor.
