Washington, D.C. — McKinley Advisors, an association consulting firm, has been named as one of Washington Business Journal's "Best Places to Work" in the Washington, D.C. region.

To determine the nominees, Washington Business Journal, in partnership with Quantum Workplace, assessed employee satisfaction through staff surveys. The survey questions focused on company culture, leadership, employee engagement, employee benefits and more. Based on the results of the survey, 75 Greater Washington companies were selected from hundreds of companies that participated.

“We pride ourselves on being a people-first company, so we are constantly looking for ways to take better care of our employees and improve their work experience. As our firm grew over the past year, we overhauled our recruiting and onboarding process to ensure our commitment to equity and belonging are at the foundation of those processes,” said Karli Susi, MBA, McKinley Advisors Chief Operating Officer.

McKinley Advisors helps associations address their most complex challenges and has partnered with hundreds of mission-driven organizations to develop clear, actionable and proven strategies that enable clients to maximize their value and advance their missions.

“I am beyond grateful for our amazing team of individuals who all share a passion and expertise to support the association community.
