Global consulting firm to create over 450 jobs in Blue Ash
By Terry Troy
Protiviti will open its new Americas Delivery Center in Blue Ash just outside of Cincinnati. The company, which has leased 47,000 square feet for the facility, plans to create 450 new jobs at the location over the next four to five years.
“Leasing this new office space in Blue Ash solidifies Protiviti’s commitment to our Americas Delivery Center in the Cincinnati region,” said Cory Gunderson, an executive vice president and leader of global solutions for Protiviti. “We’ll provide a broad range of standardized, technology-enabled, innovative and highly cost-effective services that support our consulting engagements across our offerings. We’re excited to be an employer of choice and hire local folks to help serve our global client base.”
“We’ve already hired nearly 70 people for the ADC and are running ahead of our projections,” said Bart Bradley, ADC site leader, Protiviti. “Our goal is to get up to approximately 450 employees within four to five years. That significant growth will bring tremendous professional opportunities for our people, including developing leadership, management, technical and operational skills. We’re interested in attracting talent from a wide variety of backgrounds including those with or without a university degree. We also look for people who have attention to detail and like being challenged to find ways to work better, smarter and more efficiently, including using technology to automate routine tasks.”
Protiviti is also looking to hire a diverse team, including but not limited to those who have followed non-traditional career paths, people who are re-entering the workforce or who are approaching the end of their careers.
“We believe building a diverse workforce and inclusive work culture will be a competitive advantage for us. We encourage our team members to bring their whole, authentic selves to work,” added Bradley. “We’re pleased to be able to offer candidates in the Cincinnati region positions in a top-notch professional working and collaborative environment that also happens to be near the beautiful Summit Park.”
A worldwide consulting firm, Protiviti has been recognized for its diverse hiring and employment practice, being named this year as one of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. It was also recently named to Seramount’s 2021 Top 75 Companies for Executive Women.
The list recognizes U.S. companies that demonstrate effectiveness in moving women to senior ranks, via mentoring, sponsorship, involvement in employee resource groups and leadership development training.
“Protiviti values inclusion and is committed to driving progress in our workforce, workplace and the marketplace,” said Protiviti Executive Vice President, Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Susan Haseley. “This recognition encourages us in our ongoing efforts to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.”
The Top 75 Companies survey evaluates U.S. companies with at least 1,000 employees on every aspect of women’s advancement, including succession planning, profit-and-loss roles, gender pay parity, support programs and work-life balance programs. Seramount was formerly known as Working Mother.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Protiviti to help bring its high-tech Americas Delivery Center to Blue Ash,” said Blue Ash Economic Development Director Neil Hensley. “The move is a testament to the City’s ongoing commitment to nurture and build its already strong business base.”
Locating the ADC in Ohio was supported by JobsOhio, REDI Cincinnati and the Ohio Department of Development. Protiviti has had offices in Cleveland and Cincinnati providing consulting services since the firm’s founding in 2002 and recently added an office location in Columbus.
