HERNDON, VA – Karsun Solutions announced today it is a recipient of the 2024 Top Workplaces for Remote Work award, featured by Monster, a global leader in connecting people and jobs. Energage, a purpose-driven organization that builds and brands employers of choice, determines the awards through an employee survey.  As a government contractor, Karsun Solutions hires technology experts for remote roles nationwide. Karsun teams empower government agencies to meet their mission through modern software development, cloud and data solutions.

“Top Workplaces awards are a powerful tool for companies to attract exceptional talent,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “They showcase distinctive culture strengths and communicate a clear message to potential recruits: This is a place where you can thrive and excel.”

“These awards underscore the importance of listening to employees about where and when they can be their most productive and happiest selves,” shares Monster CEO Scott Gutz. “We know that this flexibility is essential to helping both employers and candidates find the right fit.”

The Top Workplaces employer recognition program has a 17-year history of researching, surveying, and celebrating people-first organizations nationally and across 65 regional markets. 

The 2024 Top Workplaces for Remote Work award celebrates organizations with 150 or more employees cultivating exceptional remote working environments. Karsun earned the award based on employee feedback. The results of a confidential employee engagement survey were evaluated by comparing responses to research-based statements that predict high performance against industry benchmarks.  

Surveys conducted through Energage support Karsun’s initiatives toward building an open, transparent, employee-centered workplace. Karsun is proud to participate in other Energage award programs, including previously receiving Technology Industry Top Workplace awards from the organization. 

“We are proud of this recognition, which represents our ongoing commitment to a remote-flexible workplace where our team members can grow and thrive,” said Kelly Demaitre, Karsun’s Chief People Officer.

Karsun also secured culture awards for work-life flexibility, diversity and professional growth. It empowers teams with the flexibility to select the in-person, hybrid or remote approach that works best for them. Most teams choose remote work arrangements while utilizing Karsun’s resources for virtual training, collaboration and innovation. Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Karsun’s continual investment in employees yielded strong contract growth. As a result, it continues to hire for remote roles nationwide at KarsunCareers.com.

Like many organizations, Karsun transitioned to a remote workforce in 2020. Beginning with that transition and throughout the last three years, it has won new awards for culture, diversity, benefits and more. Most recently, it picked up its first-ever Top Workplaces Culture award for Work-Life Flexibility. Karsun received this award in addition to repeat Technology Industry Top Workplaces and Oklahoman Top Workplaces awards. 2023 was also Karsun’s first year receiving a Comparably Best Company Career Growth award. Both Top Workplaces and Comparably are based on independent third assessments of Karsun culture based on feedback from current employees.

Chae Song, the program manager for Karsun’s GSA Fleet Program, received a FORUM IMPACT award from the industry news sites FORUM/g2xchange. This award recognized exceptional women technology leaders from government and industry. Karsun continued to be recognized as a local industry leader, receiving a ranking for the fifth year in a row on the Northern Virginia Technology Council Tech 100

In addition to industry award recognition, Karsun experts and executives appeared as thought leaders in white papers, panel discussions and industry podcasts. Notably, Karsun released our Design for Every Next white paper detailing our strategy for delivering high-quality UI/UX initiatives on a massive scale and in highly complex systems. Karsun President, Terry Miller appeared on the Federal Tech Podcast to share insights from this new paper. 

Finally, Karsun graduated its eleventh fellow from an American Council on Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) professional development program. Anu Pajjur, a Portfolio Lead for Karsun’s FAA portfolio, completed ACT-IAC’s Voyagers Program in May 2023. This program pairs up-and-coming leaders from industry and government in an intensive one-year program.

From work-life balance to elevating industry leaders, culture shines here. The Karsun team continues its commitment to an employee-centered culture where everyone can learn and grow. And there are new opportunities to grow as a Karsun expert. We are hiring for remote roles nationwide. To join our team and Find Your Next visit KarsunCareers.com.  

Karsun has an employee-centered workplace that places flexibility, innovation and collaboration at the heart of our business. For most of our team members, that means they work remotely. And while that is the preferred style of work for many, we also know connecting in person is important to many of our team members. That is why we brought back some of our most popular in-person events this year. These included family picnics, team celebrations and community events. The result was new opportunities for team Karsun to connect with each other, within their communities and with our core values

One of those core values is fun, and this year marked the return of many of Karsun’s in-person social events. These were opportunities for Karsun families, teams and partners to meet face-to-face while enjoying ice cream socials, farm days and other activities. Additionally, we shared team accomplishments, presented innovative creations and recognized extraordinary work in monthly and quarterly remote events. Nearly 90 people received one of our quarterly employee awards this year alone. While many of these awards celebrated performance, several team members each quarter were awarded for embodying Karsun’s core values. 

For our Northern Virginia team members, this resulted in teams reconnecting with their community. The neighborhood clean-up team resumed their Adopt-a-Highway project, focusing on a new area near Karsun’s headquarters in Herndon, Virginia. The Wellness Team also led a Fit for Fall Challenge culminating in Run on the Rocks. This event, sponsored by Karsun, benefits Team AIMS, an organization supporting our local Washington, D.C., region and global communities.

The Wellness Team also ensured that our team had the resources to spend their time away from work in the way that best supports their needs. For that reason, we announced several new benefits this year. These updated benefits added parental leave, enhanced paid time off and new employee perks and discounts in addition to the award-winning benefits already enjoyed by Karsun team members. We were honored to receive our first Top Workplaces Culture award for Work-Life Flexibility. These awards came as we renewed our commitment to an open, transparent, employee-centered culture.  

As we prepare for 2024, we are excited to watch our team grow and thrive together. That includes new opportunities to connect and collaborate. We are actively hiring for remote roles nationwide. If you are ready to join us in the new year, check out our open positions and Find Your Next as part of team Karsun.

Karsun Solutions has once again been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Oklahoman Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. 

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

Karsun Solutions previously received a Top Workplaces 2023 Culture Excellence Award for Work-Life Flexibility and a 2023 Technology Industry Top Workplace Award. Both award programs use third-party survey results from Energage. In addition to culture awards from Top Workplaces, it has also received recognition from Comparably, an employee-rating site, for company outlook, diversity and career growth. 

“We are committed to a work culture where all can grow, innovate, collaborate and build great solutions for our government customers,” said Kelly Demaitre, Karsun Chief People Officer. “We are honored to see this commitment reflected in this Top Workplaces award.”

Karsun Solutions is an enterprise modernization firm serving government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Aviation Administration and General Services Administration. Most of Karsun’s Oklahoma City, Oklahoma-based team serves its FAA customer. This is the second year its team was named an Oklahoma Top Workplace.

For more information on Comparably and its annual Best Places to Work Awards, visit www.comparably.com.

This week the Washington Business Journal released its annual diversity index. We are proud to have appeared here and on the Journal’s other diverse businesses lists in the past. A critical part of building our diverse culture is a commitment to creating collaborative spaces and instilling teamwork across our organization.

It begins at the top. Our CEO and co-founder, Sundar Vaidyanathan, is a past winner of the Washington Business Journal’s Minority Business Leader Award. He was named to Comparably.com’s Best CEOs for Diversity in 2021 and 2022. This award is unique because the rankings are based on the reviews of diverse employee groups across Karsun. Those CEOs named to this list are recognized directly by their employees for their outstanding leadership.

“Teamwork and inclusivity are [the] most positive [part] about the culture and environment,” begins one Comparably review. Teamwork is one of our core values, and we pride ourselves on building an open and collaborative workplace. Again, much of this begins with our leadership. Each month a rotating group of employees is invited to participate in Coffee with Leadership. During these small virtual meetings, Karsun team members share feedback and concerns directly with our executive team with their recommendations to make Karsun an even better place to work. Lunch with Leadership gives managers the same opportunities to advocate on behalf of their teams.

Additionally, every employee has access to Karsun career pathing, a tool that allows them to view the pathway to every role at Karsun from entry-level through CEO. The tool suggests resources for an employee to progress and grow at Karsun. As a team growing together remotely, these resources are available to all team members regardless of their location via our Karsun Konnect app. 

We extend this commitment to growing diverse teams outside Karsun as well. We invest in supporting community organizations that enable people from diverse groups to grow in their careers. This includes organizations like TiE DC, which hosts entrepreneurship programs for current and future technology leaders. Or Women in Technology, which empowers women and girls exploring careers in STEM. Many of our senior leaders and executives also support industry organizations such as the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC). 

While we are proud of past recognition for our diversity efforts, we are excited to see how the diverse experiences of our team members inspire us to build better solutions for our government customers. Teamwork and collaboration are core to the work we do. Learn more about meaningful opportunities to join our collaborative culture at KarsunCareers.com.

Each quarter we celebrate a special group of individuals at Karsun. These team members, nominated by their collaborators and leaders, embody our core values. Their work represents the values that drive us to deliver quality solutions to our U.S. government customers. 

A recent LinkedIn survey found 82% of U.S. workers said it is important that their company’s values align with their personal values. We know core values are important to our team members, which is why we honor our values throughout the year. And it is also the reason we take special care to recognize how excellence, innovation, teamwork, commitment, integrity, and fun all help us deliver exceptional solutions to our government customers.

Excellence

At Karsun, we celebrate excellence in all we do. That includes recognizing team members who go the extra mile to learn or enhance their skills to deliver on a critical project. We also honor team members who take on new projects and responsibilities. We recently recognized a team leader who embodied both of these qualities. He stepped in to perform hands-on work when his team needed additional support. As a result, that team exceeded customer expectations on their project. When we recognize excellence, we honor both the outcome and the initiative, time, and effort required to obtain those results.

Innovation 

In addition to our monthly Innovation Town Halls, we also recognize some of our innovators during our quarterly awards ceremony. Every team member at Karsun has access to the Karsun Innovation Center, no matter their role. In one instance, a recent winner was celebrated for her work prototyping a synthetic data solution within a short time frame. This award also promotes work that may otherwise go unacknowledged publicly because it relates to confidential or proprietary projects. We use this opportunity to celebrate the members of our challenge teams that take on additional work beyond their usual duties to support new opportunities.

Teamwork

Our team champions and experts unite to build extraordinary solutions for our government customers. We honor the champions that implement better ways for their teams to work together. One of these team leaders was recognized for updating onboarding, reporting, and standard operating procedures for one of our helpdesk/operations and maintenance (O&M) teams. These major process improvements enhanced the relationship between his team and other teams, and our customers. A team member from our finance team was also recognized for similar process improvements. We celebrated her for not only improving productivity across teams but the way she builds trust and loyalty within her own team as well.

Commitment

We are committed to building modernization solutions that are built to last. That commitment extends from our practice advocates in the Innovation Center to our delivery teams. As part of our organization-wide commitment to this cause, many of our team members pitch in to grow our company in a way that ensures we have knowledgeable experts on every team. Last fall, one of these individuals was recognized for his commitment to ensuring talented team members join Karsun during rapid growth. He dedicated his time to interviewing and was ultimately responsible for multiple new Software Development Engineers in Test (SDET) joining Karsun.

Integrity

We conduct ourselves with honesty and fairness. That means doing the right thing for both our employees and our customers. That also includes acting proactively to ensure we do things the right way every time. We recently recognized a member of our quality assurance team for his management of our Software Process Engineering Group (SPEG). Under his management, that group is responsible for designing and executing quality assurance programs across Karsun teams to ensure we continually meet audit standards and best practices.

Fun

From day one, Karsun celebrated fun as one of our core values. That includes both a commitment to spending meaningful time together through events such as family picnics and team celebrations to ensuring our teams use their time in the way that is most efficient for them. Several of our core value award winners were recognized for going beyond one of the core values described above to improve the culture of their team. Nominations for our awards frequently mention how these stellar individuals improve team morale, bring empathy to their projects and improve the overall experience of working at Karsun.

Our core values inspire us to deliver extraordinary solutions to our government customers. These values are important to us, and we hope they might be important to you. If these stories inspired you to join a team where we honor and recognize strong values, then it is time to Find Your Next at KarsunCareers.com.

Remote work is no doubt popular with employees as demand for remote positions continues to grow. We have previously written about our commitment to flexible work environments, including remote work. Not only are remote and hybrid arrangements great for employee work-life balance, but they can also be great for the environment too. As part of our series this April examining the impact of Karsun’s work on the environment, we examine the ways in which remote work builds a healthier future for our communities and team members alike.

Remote work can conserve the environment in several ways. To begin with, by working remotely, employees can eliminate or significantly reduce their daily commute. That means fewer cars on the road, reduced traffic congestion, and lower greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. Remote and hybrid also reduce business travel, which is a significant source of carbon emissions. By using video conferencing and other remote collaboration tools, companies can reduce their carbon footprint. Teams in the Karsun Innovation Center support these goals by continually adding enhanced tools for remote collaboration to our Karsun Konnect employee application.

Adopting a flexible approach to remote work reduces energy usage and other waste. It moderates energy usage in buildings since fewer people are working in the office. This can lead to lower electricity and water consumption, as well as reduced HVAC usage. Karsun also uses a hoteling system as part of our Karsun Konnect app to better anticipate facilities and operational needs. This allows our onsite teams to act more efficiently to conserve resources when not in use.

Overall, remote work can help reduce the environmental impact of work and improve sustainability. But creating a better environment is also about encouraging a healthy and happy working environment too. Karsun commits to flexibility, work-life balance, and an open, collaborative culture as part of its employee-centered workplace.

Creating a Healthier Remote Work Environment

Remote work can offer several health benefits for workers. Remote work can reduce the stress of commuting and dealing with office disruptions. Workers can also have more control over their work environment, such as the temperature, lighting, and noise level, which can lead to less stress. Additionally, monthly Karsun Wellness newsletters offer tips and suggestions for reducing stress while creating a healthier work environment at home. 

Flexibility is a core tenant of our approach to work. Whether that’s the flexibility to explore new technology or pick the best spaces to collaborate as a team. Remote and hybrid work offered at Karsun allows our team members to have more flexibility in their work schedules. Likewise, flexible work options improve work-life balance by allowing workers to spend more time with their families, pursue hobbies, and engage in self-care activities, which can reduce stress and improve mental health.

Working from home can also encourage a healthier lifestyle, as workers have more time for exercise and healthy meal preparation. In fact, we actively encourage our team to use Karsun resources to focus on their health throughout the work week. Our team members may tune in to weekly remote exercise and fitness groups through our Karsun Konnect. 

At the same time, giving our team members the opportunity to work remotely when appropriate can also reduce exposure to illness. Workers that have the option to work remotely can reduce their proximity to others who may be sick. We also ensure our team members remain healthy throughout the year with award-winning benefits and generous paid time off. 

Overall, remote work can offer a range of health benefits for workers and a healthy environment for our communities. This contributes to improved well-being and quality of life for all.
