Vault Ranks Insight Sourcing Group #1 Boutique Consulting Firm

Atlanta Consulting Firm Ranks #1 for Innovation, Firm Leadership, Business Outlook, & Overall Satisfaction


ATLANTA, Georgia – August 22, 2017 – For the third time in four years, Insight Sourcing Group has been named the #1 Boutique Consulting Firm to Work For in the Vault Consulting Top 50 for 2018—an annual ranking of the best consulting firms to work for.  Insight Sourcing Group previously held the #1 Boutique ranking in 2015 (the year the ranking was created) and in 2016.

The firm made across the board improvements, moving up four spots to #13 on the Overall Top 50 list;  regaining the #1 Boutique ranking; and rising in every single sub-category.  Of all consulting firms of any size, Vault ranked Insight Sourcing Group as #1 in the following categories:

  • Innovation
  • Firm Leadership
  • Overall Business Outlook
  • Relationship with Supervisors
  • Overall Satisfaction

The firm also ranks top 3 for Vacation Policy, Work / Life Balance, Firm Culture, Hours in the Office, Promotion Policy, and Travel Requirements.

“Insight Sourcing Group has been on our radar for a number of years—not least because it occupies a niche in the industry that is both growing and yet somehow underserved by the largest firms in the industry,” says Vault’s editorial team on the website. “In the course of watching the firm, it has gone from strength to strength in terms of its business performance and—more pertinent to our concerns—as an employer. It was no surprise at all, then, when the firm emerged at the top of our boutique ranking again this year: it’s been trending that way for some time, proving that the accolade is no fluke.”

“Being ranked as the #1 Boutique Consulting Firm provides tremendous validation of our focus on and investments in our culture,” said Tom Beaty, founder and CEO.  “The award is great for recruiting and provides visibility for our firm to people who might not know about us otherwise.  Our clients like working with enthusiastic consultants who are liberated from internal politics to focus exclusively on their needs.”
