Forbes has named ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading global consulting and technology services provider to commercial and government clients, as one of America’s best mid-size employers for the second consecutive year. Companies on the list are recognized for being the best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated.

ICF works with hundreds of companies in critical markets and governments all over the world to plan, design, and implement transformative projects. The company has over 5,000 employees across 70 countries, with senior staff staying at the company for an average of 13 years. Each year more than 6,000 professional development courses are completed by ICF staff and an average of 14 percent receive promotions, which is five percent higher than the national average. Additionally, women hold nearly half of ICF’s leadership roles and three women sit on the company’s eight-person board of directors.

“It is an honor to be considered one of the best companies by those who know us best: our people,” said Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF Chairman and CEO. “We are not a typical services provider in the fact that we encourage our experts to think creatively, tackle problems with ingenuity and support diversity in every sense of the word. We are passionate about finding ways to invest in our people so they succeed and help our clients succeed.”

ICF was also named the No. 16 consulting firm to work for by Ivy Exec, an online professional network for executives, jumping up eight slots since last year. The company was also recognized by Forbes earlier this month as one of “America’s Best Management Consulting Firms” among its peers and clients for taking nontraditional approaches to the some of the most pressing challenges facing clients.
