The top scorers included Digital Management, a Bethesda firm that employs 907 workers and has appeared on Inc. magazine’s fastest-growing companies list for 10 consecutive years, according to the Post. Digital Management was ranked No. 21 out of 30 large companies on the Post’s list

The highest-scoring large company overall is Appian, a software firm that employees nearly 900 people in Northern Virginia.
