Insight Sourcing Group Lands #4 Spot in Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s 2017 Top Workplaces Survey
ATLANTA, Georgia — March 27, 2017 — Insight Sourcing Group, an Atlanta-based boutique consulting firm focused on cost optimization and procurement-related services, announced today that it has been named one of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplaces in 2017. The firm is ranked as the #4 top company with less than 150 people, making this Insight Sourcing Group’s third consecutive year ranking in the top 5 small workplaces.
In addition to being named the #4 workplace, the firm also received special recognition for showing that efficiency, quality, and excellence in execution are hallmarks of the company.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of Atlanta’s Top Small Workplace,” said Tom Beaty, CEO of Insight Sourcing Group. “We have built a unique culture that attracts and retains great people. We are humbled by the fact that our turnover is well below the consulting industry average of 15-25% per year, and in fact last year, our voluntary turnover was 0%. After many years of high staff retention, we have many team members who joined us out of college five, eight, and even 10 or 11 years ago and remain with us. For a firm whose product is its people, this consistency and depth of expertise brings extraordinary value to our clients.”
“Despite receiving awards like this one, we always strive to enhance and build upon our culture and this year is no different,” Beaty said. “We have recently launched an effort to create a world class leadership development program for our team members that will be unique among firms of our size and innovative compared to larger firms.”
Almost 60,000 metro workers participated in the survey. They were asked to respond to a set of statements using a seven-point Likert scale. Each statement was tested to ensure a high correlation with how metro employees rate their workplaces. This was calculated by correlating the statement responses to a control question that asked each employee to rate his or her workplace on a scale of zero to 99.
The resulting top 150 list consists of 25 large companies (500 or more employees), 50 midsize companies (150-499 employees) and 75 small companies (149 or fewer employees). Another 15 companies are honored as WorkPlace Achievers — they scored high enough to meet national standards but not high enough to crack the top 150.
