Collaborative Solutions announced that it has been recognized as the number two ‘Best Firm to Work For’ by Consulting Magazine for the second year in a row. Consulting Magazine conducts the popular Best Firms survey annually, with over three hundred of the industry’s top firms participating in 2019.
“Having a spot at number two on this list for the second year in a row is a huge accomplishment,” said Carroll Ross, Chief Executive Officer. “This recognition highlights everything that we work so hard to accomplish – from culture and client engagement, to career development and strategy, and I am humbled and proud that through our acquisition and integration of another firm this past year, we have been able to not only maintain, but strengthen each of these areas.”
Rankings were based on the online survey conducted over the spring and summer, which garnered participation from 11,000 consultants at every staff level. The survey included six categories which measured different aspects of employee satisfaction. These categories included: Client Engagement, Firm Culture, Firm Leadership, Career Development, Work/Life Balance, and Compensation & Benefits. Collaborative Solutions ranked in the top three in each category.
“The results of the survey are extremely encouraging,” said Bob Maller, President and Chief Culture Officer. “With our open-door policy and dedication to a culture of feedback, we like to think that we have a good pulse on morale, but this shows us our programs and initiatives really are beneficial and well received by our consultants. We work in a fast-paced and demanding industry, so it is critical that we keep the wellbeing of our employees a priority.”
Collaborative Solutions’ dedication to employee wellbeing is all-encompassing. Everyone is viewed and treated as a full person with unique and valuable skill sets, career goals, and personal lives. Collaborative strives to build upon and nurture each of these elements with vast training opportunities, a mentorship program, and bi-annual career conversations, which come coupled with benefits like volunteer time off and unlimited PTO. The result of this dedication is a superior workforce and the reputation that our consultants offer the knowledge, experience, and integrity that make Collaborative the preferred firm choice for those interested in digital transformation.
