HERNDON, VA – Karsun Solutions has been awarded an Oklahoma Top Workplaces 2022 honor by The Oklahoman.

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.

Leadership Begins Within
Leadership and professional development programs start with the Karsun Innovation Center (KIC). The KIC leverages an in-house research and development unit, employee-centric practice areas and Karsun Academy which supports certification and training. The R&D team prototypes new technologies and is often the starting point for participants in Karsun Internship Program. This year’s intern class experimented with tools supporting asynchronous workdays. It was also featured by Comparably for companies offering flex internships. Many interns later transition to support client and delivery work at Karsun.
Practice Areas not only act as centers of excellence supporting initiatives like Karsun’s recent AWS Migration Competency but also empower teams through resource libraries, access to industry experts and opportunities to share experiences outside their team or organization. One popular program is Karsun’s Brown Bag series which includes both technical topics and sessions on soft skills like mentorship and virtual presentations.
Preparing Industry Leaders
Brown Bags, in addition to Karsun Academy’s Dojo workshops, serve as training grounds to prepare experts to present at outside events. The KIC’s Data Practice hosts the DataOps NoVa Meetup which previously included presentations from Karsun delivery team members, interns and experts. Government and public sector technologists may now also join practice experts for Karsun led AWS Immersion Days. And as hybrid and virtual industry events dominate calendars speakers from Karsun appeared at events like All Day DevOps.
In addition to events featuring our practice leaders, Karsun corporate leaders also shared their experience scaling and growing with Karsun. Senior Vice President Ben Marglin presented on this topic as part of an ACT-IAC panel. He later spoke on Acquisition Innovation at the organization’s annual Executive Leadership Conference (ELC).
