WASHINGTON, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Monument Wealth Management is proudly recognized as one of the top 25 "Best Places to Work" in the small business category of the Washington Business Journal article, "2013 Best Places to Work." This prestigious award goes out to 25 companies in each of three categories: small (10-50 employees), medium (51-150 employees), and large (151-999,999 employees). The company must first be nominated for the award, and then a survey is distributed to and completed by its employees. Winners are determined as those representing excellent spirit and diverse characteristics. The employees of Monument Wealth enjoy a dog friendly work environment, March Madness brackets where the winner's charity of choice receives a donation from Monument, holiday donations to each staff member's charity of choice, the ability to choose one paid Friday off each summer month, and a refrigerator stocked with snacks and beverages.

Administrative Assistant, Paula K. Cooper, explains that the employees are "encouraged to take initiative and receive a sense of empowerment that does not exist in many other workplaces." Brittany R. Kaschak, Brand Manager, describes Monument's new office set up, which "allows for communication, collaboration, and transparency across the practice, which can be hard to find in other financial firms."
