CTS Impact: An Innovative Approach to Consulting

CTS Impact was founded in 2002 in response to a market demand for something different than the traditional consulting model. Our goal was simple: To provide hands-on business consulting services, by leveraging industry-experienced staff who are passionate about the work, and also who want to be part of something more; to help others in our community.   

And for over two decades, CTS Impact has been committed to re-defining what it means to be a consulting firm.

The difference is simple: We hire—and retain– exceptional people with real-world experience.

Every member of our highly collaborative team brings more than seven years of real-world experience in business integration, finance & accounting, human resources, data analytics and information technology across a wide range of industries. This first-hand insight expertise allows us to understand and navigate the complexities facing large organizations, by rolling up our sleeves to implement practical solutions. 

In other words, we do the work.

Our clients include Fortune 1000, middle market, and emerging growth companies with global reach, and our work includes projects in the United States and 16 countries worldwide to date.

CTS Impact is a woman-owned and operated firm, and a WBE-Certified Women’s Business Enterprise that partners with our clients to help demonstrate their commitment to supplier diversity.

Our 3 Pillars of Impact:

Our innovative business model consists of 3 major pillars to make the most significant and sustainable impact on our clients, our team and in our community.

Client Impact

We apply our real-world, first-hand industry experience to analyze and  implement practical solutions, all delivered with a “roll-up your sleeves” approach. Our recommendations are rooted in best practices, and then carefully tailored to fit the unique business needs of our clients.

Our team approaches our solutions with a practical mindset, which keeps our work grounded in the business needs of our partners. This flexible, hands-on approach is a hybrid of hands-on business consulting expertise coupled with staff augmentation resources—our team includes Project Managers, Business Analysts and  Subject Matter Experts who work side-by-side with our clients to rise to each new challenge with innovative solutions.

Team Impact

A collaborative and supportive workplace attracts top talent, and great people do great work. That’s why we offer our employees the resources, flexibility, and professional development they need to thrive both professionally and personally. The success of this approach is evidenced by our high employee retention rate year over year, and a vibrant culture consisting of creative problem-solvers that has yielded transformative, sustainable change for our clients.

At CTS Impact, our proven commitment to DEI has been inherent in our culture from the very beginning. We value an inclusive, welcoming culture that promotes equity as well as diversity, and have consistently sought to assemble a team made of diverse, dedicated, and deeply experienced individuals   The depth and breadth of knowledge among our staff fosters a highly collaborative team environment, where complementary skill sets and real-world industry experiences are leveraged to find the best possible solutions to our clients’ most complex and unique problems.

Social Impact

CTS Impact was founded with the belief that as business leaders, it is incumbent upon us to lead by example through a commitment to social justice. As champions for social change, helping those in our community is an integral part of our business model.  We achieve our social impact goals in the same way as we treat all our endeavors—with a holistic, hands-on approach.

From financial support to serving on boards and committees, volunteering to pro-bono consulting services, our commitment to helping those in need is multi-faceted and long-standing. By inviting our team and business partners to join our commitment to social justice, CTS Impact is committed to being a workplace where both our employees and clients have the opportunity to join us in building a better tomorrow.
