RESTON, VA – October 14, 2020 – This week, Collaborative Solutions was named one of the Top Workplaces in D.C. by The Washington Post. The Post announced the top places to work in the Washington D.C. area according to its seventh annual Top Workplaces survey, with Collaborative ranking #54 on the list for small companies.
Conducted in partnership with employee engagement firm Energage, LLC, the Post’s survey identified the highest ranked workplaces in the region based on employee responses about their own company. More than 3,500 area companies were invited to participate, and 406 companies were surveyed.
“Now in its seventh year, the Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies that are leaders in the Washington-area in terms of employee engagement and satisfaction,” said The Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “We had a record number of employees participate in the survey this year, making it clear that these organizations have made cultivating an atmosphere of support and respect a priority.”
Collaborative Solutions continues to focus on its familial culture for employees, even as tremendous growth and an acquisition into the Cognizant family of companies has brought change to the organization. Programs like "Collabie Convos," in which executive leaders host small, casual conversations with employees on a variety of topics, help to create a culture of transparency and openness that are crucial to being a top workplace. Especially this year, as employees are working fully remotely, Collaborative has utilized creative ways of connecting so that morale stays high and employees feel supported by one another.
“We are delighted to be back on this list as a Top Workplace in D.C.,” said Carroll Ross, CEO at Collaborative Solutions. “Collaborative has a global workforce made up of the best and brightest employees who continually strive for excellence, and our D.C. employees are no exception.”
This recognition follows other noteworthy honors throughout 2020 thus far for Collaborative Solutions, including Fortune Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services, Top 100 Best Companies in Florida, Best Places to Work in Atlanta, and Fortune Best Place to Work for Millennials, Fortune Best Place to Work for Women, as well as recognitions for our Executive Leadership Team.
