Designing the Ideal Employment Environment Earns Denver Company Accolades

Velocity Global named the winner of the 2018 Top Company Awards – Professional Services


Published:

Professional services – from architects to accountants, engineers to doctors and lawyers – this expansive sector encompasses a meaningful chunk of Colorado's economy. The 2018 Top Companies in this category run the gamut from employment solutions to environmental stewardship. Check out the Top Professional Services in Colorado this year.


VELOCITY GLOBAL

DENVER

Velocity Global is a global employment solutions company that offers a suite of services that help its clients expand around the world.

The Denver-based company, which has nine offices worldwide, helps with everything from setting up the operation and hiring employees in new markets to helping procure business and work visas and handling payroll. Its wide reach enables it to support clients around the clock.

“The real secret sauce behind Velocity Global is our belief in prioritizing people, both internally and externally,” Velocity Global Chief Executive Ben Wright says. “Internally, we strive to design the best employment environment possible for all of our talented team members. And externally, we endeavor to create an unparalleled client experience first and foremost, regardless of the service that we are providing.”

Velocity Global supports First Descents, a Denver-based nonprofit that provides support and assistance to young adult cancer survivors through outdoor adventure programs. The company recently extended its financial commitment to help develop a new program specifically designed for young adults battling multiple sclerosis, a disease that hits close to home with the company’s Director of Sales Rob Wellner, who was diagnosed with MS nine years ago.

The company is looking for ways to increase its philanthropic participation in First Descents and plans to implement a company-wide volunteer program with three local organizations by January.


FINALISTS

 

LT ENVIRONMENTAL INC.

ARVADA

LT Environmental’s commitment to doing the right thing has earned the company numerous accolades, including the VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship; recognition of its groundwater quality protection program in oil fields from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists; and Pinnacol Assurance’s 2017 Circle of Safety Award presented to the top 1 percent of more than 26,000 companies nationwide.    

The company’s patent pending groundwater sampling technique increases quality while reducing client costs and vehicle travel. It also has developed mobile solar-powered groundwater remediation systems for remote sites and uses drone technology to support assessment activities and remediation projects.

Among its projects were managing regulatory issues and impacted materials for the Shoemaker Plaza renovation and Confluence Park and repurposing the Argo Mine in Idaho Springs.


CREATIVE ALIGNMENTS

BOULDER

Creative Alignments’ approach to recruiting finds its clients the best talent while saving them money. That’s because instead of charging a commission, Creative Alignments bills clients for the time it takes to find their ideal employee. Because Creative Alignments’ employees aren’t working on commission, they can work as a collaborative, transparent and supportive team. They share ideas, resources and work to ensure clients are getting the best employees.

The team recruits across all functions in the technology, food and consumer products, professional services and manufacturing industries. Founded in Boulder, the company has expanded to Denver, Austin and most recently to the Chicago market. It intends to continue expanding into new markets across the nation.
