Collaborative Solutions – Why Work For Us?



We have been delivering successful ERP and SaaS implementations and upgrades to clients across the public and private sectors for nearly ten years. In 2003, we started our business supporting large-scale implementations of PeopleSoft ERP solutions such as HR, Payroll and Financial systems. In late 2006, we began forming alliances with leading SaaS providers such as and Taleo. By mid-2007, we added Workday implementation services as our foundation offering, making the transition from being exclusively focused on legacy and packaged software solutions to helping shape the growing SaaS space.  We now focus on implementing Workday solutions.

Since the inception of our Workday partnership, we have experienced a period of sustained growth as a result of our ability to meet customer needs and execute successful Workday deployments.

As a result, we offer unmatched services in the marketplace, across HCM, Payroll, and Financials implementations. In the past two years, our employee headcount has more than doubled and we have expanded our company offerings in the following areas:

  • Added Financials and Change Management & Training Service offerings

    Collaborative is an amazing place to work. This is a company that actually cares about their employees and makes sure you know it. The opportunity here is limitless and the people are the best I have ever worked with.


    I'd love to have more company wide meetings to get a chance to engage more with my co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Collaborative Solutions (Reston, VA) in June 2015.


    This was my best interview experience as I was job searching! The process was very straight forward and I was always able to get in touch with my recruiter.The communication was open and the questions I was asked were relevant to what I would be doing in the position. During my second interview I was supposed to have a phone call with a team member that ended up having a family matter they had to step away for at the last minute so the President & COO of the company jumped on the phone with me, while he was traveling, to conduct my second interview. How cool! I felt really valued and it was great to see that Collaborative really cares about their candidates and respects their time. Overall, my recruiter did an amazing job communicating with me on where I was in the process and each interview felt like a conversation where they were getting to know me and my skills vs. question after question feeling like I was being quizzed. Great interview experience!
