FORTUNE Recognizes Collaborative Solutions as a Best Workplace for Women for Third Straight Year

Company ranks ranks on noteworthy list as a top workplace for women.

RESTON, VA –  September 18, 2020 Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored Collaborative Solutions as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Women. The ranking considered feedback representing over 4.9 million employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.

Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60  elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.  Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies that best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Collaborative took the #3 spot on the list.

"What's wonderful about Collaborative is that we have always focused on pay equity and gender parity," said Lynn Hurley, Senior Vice President of Consulting Services. "It's something that has had leadership's attention from the very beginning."

This commitment to pay equity is evidenced by Collaborative's monthly compensation review process, as well as continuous monitoring by practice leaders to ensure more frequent equity reviews. Being a value-driven company has also resulted in an equal split of males and females at every level of business. All of this has elevated Collaborative Solutions as an employer of choice, offering an inclusive work environment for all.

The Best Workplaces for Women stand out for excelling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces. In the past year, Collaborative has continued to focus on inclusivity by establishing several Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), including a group for women called Women Together. The mission of this ERG is to foster relationships, raise awareness of perspectives, and build empathy to strengthen collaboration among women and allies. 

“Best workplaces like Collaborative Solutions are committed to addressing gender issues and evolving their behaviors and mindsets to narrow the gender gap,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “By creating an inclusive culture, Best Workplaces on this list see an increase in innovation regardless of gender, giving them a competitive advantage to thrive during these uncertain times.”     

The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. In 2020, Collaborative also was ranked as a Best Workplace for Millennials™ and a Best Workplace in Consulting & Professional Services™ by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
