Our Culture

Employees are the heart of our organization. That’s why we embrace diverse perspectives and believe in treating people with respect. Our success is only possible by recognizing the distinct talents and variety of experiences of each employee, and working together to serve our community. We encourage each other to bring our whole selves to work and we create time and space for open, honest conversations. Making education accessible to all citizens is central to why we do what we do.

Our employees have the option for flexible work schedules, receive a generous number of Paid Time Off days, and have fun engaging with each other during agency-hosted activities. We believe in giving our employees the opportunity to achieve a healthy work/life balance that meets their individual needs.

Taking care of our wellbeing is a vital element in being able to accomplish our mission. That’s why we encourage employees to engage with the variety of wellness initiatives we offer – such as educational sessions, wellness programs, mental health resources, onsite walking trail, discounts for local fitness centers, and free access to our office park gym.

We know our employees enjoy working for Virginia529, as we made the Virginia Business Best Places to Work list four years in a row.

Our People

Virginia529 employees work on both higher education savings programs and savings options for individuals with disabilities. But we wouldn't be an industry leader for both programs without our highly motivated and skilled employees. We employ individuals across a wide variety of professional areas who share our commitment to helping families dream, save and achieve.

Investing in our employees is the best way to invest in the future of our organization. Our employees have a variety of ways to achieve personal and professional development success – through our tuition reimbursement program, online resources, conferences and training events.

Our employees also share our passion in giving back to the community. Virginia529 partners with organizations including Junior Achievement, Special Olympics, Partnership for the Future, Virginia Blood Services and FeedMore, the Central Virginia Foodbank. Employees can use work time to volunteer with these great non-profit organizations
