CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP), a leading provider of online real estate marketplaces, information, and analytics in the property markets, announced today that it has been chosen as a 2024 Top Workplaces USA for Richmond by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. This was the first year that CoStar Group had been considered for the award, which was informed by employee surveys conducted by a neutral third party, employee research firm Energage.

“I’m very proud that we’ve been named one of Richmond’s top places to work, an accolade that reflects our relentless focus on building and supporting the best teams in the industry,” said Andy Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar Group. “This is a validation of our efforts to create the most positive environment possible for our employees and empower them to succeed in a variety of ways. Winning this award in Richmond, where our largest number of global employees are located, helps solidify our reputation as a place where people want to work.”

The Richmond Times-Dispatch Top Workplaces Award recognizes companies in the Greater Richmond area that promote a positive workplace life and provide their employees with outstanding training opportunities and benefits. Entrants are evaluated on issues ranging from workplace life and work-life balance to training opportunities and benefits, through anonymous employee surveys.

CoStar Group prioritizes investment in its own employees as its strongest advantage in the industry. Last year, the company promoted 1,021 employees to new internal roles and maintained a 99.1% average monthly retention rate. It has also emphasized best-in-class training programs, with employees averaging 54 hours of training in 2023, a 22.7% increase compared to the year prior.
