Lodestar Consulting Ranks Among Highest Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces List

Lodestar Consulting, Inc. has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. Featured in the May/June 2022 issue, hitting newsstands on May 17, 2022, and prominently featured on, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

“At Lodestar, the core of our success rests squarely on the amazing professionals in our company and the culture which facilitates personal and professional growth. Our emphasis on people, values, and principles drives everything we do! As President, my goal is to ensure this emphasis is making a positive difference in the lives of our Team. I recently found it is, and I couldn‘t be more honored. Today, Inc. Magazine recognized Lodestar as a Best Workplace for 2022; a business who “cracked the code for excellent company culture”. I’m both humbled and thrilled by this announcement, especially knowing this designation is awarded to companies based on employee survey responses and analysis. I, and my entire leadership team, are thrilled our professionals feel the way they do about working here. It also directly ties back to why I started this company, and I couldn’t be more grateful to our most valuable resource…our people."
- Ambarish Mhaskar, President

“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
