RESTON, VA – April 28, 2020 – Collaborative Solutions announced today that it was ranked number one on the Best Workplace in Consulting and Professional Services list by FORTUNE Magazine and Great Place to Work® for small and medium companies. This is following the company earning a Great Place to Work-Certification™ for the sixth year in a row.

“It is a true honor to place on the top of this list as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company,” said Bob Maller, Collaborative’s President and Chief Culture Officer. “At Collaborative Solutions, we are driven by values to not only serve our customers well, but also our employees. This placement shows us that as we’ve grown and matured as a company, we’ve been able to achieve trust and satisfaction both in business and amongst our workforce, something difficult to accomplish in this demanding industry.”  

This is a positive progression from the company’s ranking last year at #3. A summary of these ratings can be found here. The rankings considered feedback representing more than 357,000 US employees working in the consulting or professional services industry. The feedback assessed 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job including, trust in leadership, respect given to others, fairness in workplace decisions, and camaraderie within the organization.

Collaborative’s commitment to fostering a positive and supportive work environment has only been heightened during this unprecedented time navigating through a global pandemic. With remote practices already established, Collaborative nimbly adjusted to completely working from home, and since ‘shelter in place’ orders have been implemented, the level of collaboration throughout teams and across departments have far surpassed the outlined principles and standards set in the company’s core values. This teamwork, in turn, has been beneficial to customers who are delivered the same superior level of work, along with additional resources to excel in the current climate of the world.
