Atlanta Business Chronicle Honors IT Consultancy at 15th Annual Awards Gala

Atlanta-based Cumberland Group announced today it has been named one of Atlanta’s Best Places to Work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in its 15th annual competition that assesses the most hospitable professional environments for employees in the metro area. The distinction marks the second workplace honor for the IT consultancy, which in March was named a top 5 business in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s 2018 Top Workplaces report.

Honored at a Sept. 6 ceremony hosted by the Chronicle and sponsors, Cumberland Group ranked third of 20 finalists in the medium category, which acknowledges companies with 50-99 employees. Launched in 2014, Cumberland Group will celebrate its fourth anniversary in October.

“Cultivating a workplace that’s professionally empowering and enjoyable has been a priority from the beginning,” said president and co-founder Ken Snuggs. “Happy, satisfied employees share their enthusiasm in numerous ways that benefit clients, bringing that positive energy to conversations and challenges that help turn good ideas into great solutions.”

The distinction is the result of a monthslong evaluation led by the Atlanta Business Chronicle and its partner in the endeavor, Omaha, Neb.-based Quantum Workplace. The Chronicle first asked readers for nominations via its website, then Quantum surveyed employees based on topics such as overall work satisfaction, growth opportunities, level of engagement, and training.
