Rockville, MD — fusionSpan is proud to celebrate Certification Nation Day on May 17, along with the community of Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies across the country. Great Place to Work® has designated May 17, 2022, as Certification Nation Day to salute and recognize the companies working to create great places to work for all.


The leadership approach at fusionSpan has always been to empower each other as a team. By always collaborating and supporting we have built a team that not only focuses on delivering best in class solutions to our clients but also works on continuous improvement internally in a supportive environment. Great place to work certification is a reflection of the culture and growth opportunities provided to all of us! Proud to be part of a team that believes in empowering, learning, growing, and giving back.

Great Place to Work Certification™ is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences.

Certified companies put employees first”, says Michael C. Bush, chief executive officer at Great Place to Work. “Thriving employees increase revenue, profit and provide market-leading customer experiences. I hope that Certification Nation Day can inspire other executives to create and sustain employee-first cultures.

It’s important to honor all of the work that goes into creating a Certified company.

Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily”, says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience.

fusionSpan continues to invest in its team members’ growth with professional and personal development (aka Level Up) as one of three corporate objectives this year. Each team member is committed to obtaining at least one certification and/or working on a personal goal to help them grow their skills and knowledge that contributes to the value we bring internally and externally. Continuing to craft the best version of ourselves supports our aim to deliver seamless experiences and best-in-class solutions.

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
