Pittsburgh, PA, November 5, 2020 – Aspirant, Pittsburgh-based management consulting and technology firm, has been named a “2020 Best Place to Work” in Western Pennsylvania by the Pittsburgh Business Times (PBT). The PBT is holding a virtual event to honor the winning organizations on Thursday, December 3, 2020, from 3-4 p.m.
“While large, traditional consulting firms have struggled during the pandemic, Aspirant has grown over 25% because of our culture and our people,” said Mike McClaine, President of Aspirant. “Our consultants are innovative, agile, and absolutely dedicated to creating the practical, sustainable results that businesses need now more than ever.”

This past year companies have been tested in ways no one ever imagined. Join the Pittsburgh Business Times as we recognize those companies going above and beyond for their employees as we count down our region’s best places to work by size category to those with the highest scores.”
