Collaborative Solutions Named A Top 100 Best Company in Florida for Third Consecutive Year

Reston, VA – July 30, 2019 – Collaborative Solutions has been recognized for the third time as one of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For in the large company category. The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine.

“It is a great honor to be on this list three years in a row,” said said Bob Maller, President and Chief Culture Officer at Collaborative Solutions. “We truly strive to create a workplace that not only is innovative and customer-focused, but also prioritizes the employee experience. It is important for all of our employees to know there are resources and programs in place to provide guidance, support, and opportunities to build strong and lasting connections amongst one another.”  

Participating companies were evaluated on their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, as well as an employee survey to measure satisfaction. Standings were determined by the combined scores. Collaborative Solutions placed #9 on the large company list, moving up from #13 last year.

“This year we spoke with Millennial employees of the Best Companies to Work For to get their perspectives on their workplaces and work experiences,” says Florida Trend Executive Editor Mark Howard. “It’s clear that the Best Companies know how to attract Millennials and then engage them once they’ve been hired. Millennials want what every employee wants — a workplace environment that helps them be productive and a chance for input into how work gets done.”

Collaborative Solutions’ intent to ensure a great workplace for all in Florida and across the globe in only achievable by taking into consideration all perspectives, no matter tenure, role, or age, when it comes to decision making. Continuous programs aimed to collect direct feedback from employees offer opportunities for Collaborative Solutions to grow and evolve as a company that not only provides work-life balance, but also work-life happiness.

"These best companies have figured it out!" said Florida Trend Publisher David Denor. "Providing their employees with an environment and culture that promotes growth both professionally and personally - all while delivering workplace benefits that lift employee morale and create loyalty... these best companies offer lessons we can all learn from."    

While Collaborative Solutions’ Tampa office offers a thriving culture scene, it is also acts as an innovation hub for the company. Housing the “Accelerated Cloud Deployment Center”, which allows the integrations team to leverage the company’s inventory of integration frameworks and best practices, ensuring customers get the most efficient integrations as possible, the office has acted as a blueprint for technical operations in EMEA and APAC as well. Thus, landing on a Best Companies list with connection to this office is extremely meaningful.

This honor comes on the heels of other noteworthy recognitions for Collaborative Solutions this year including, Fortune Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services, Best Place to Work in Illinois, and Fortune Best Place to Work for Millennials, as well as recognitions for our Executive Leadership Team.

The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
