What employees say: “I have never worked for another company that has made me feel more appreciated than GO2 Partners. I am often verbally thanked for a job well done and appreciate little surprises like a gift card left on my desk—which makes me want to work harder for them!”

What GO2 Partners President Charley Lombardo says: “It is a great honor to be named a Greatest Company to Work For by PPB magazine for the second consecutive year. As an employee-owned company, GO2 Partners prioritizes its employee-owners' well-being, entrepreneurial voice and professional development. In the last year we have expanded our Partners Way Team, an employee-led group that develops and executes internal employee engagement programs, recognizes and celebrates our employee-owners’ fully vested anniversary. Programs like this help GO2 foster a collaborative, prideful and selfless culture that plays a critical role in delivering a competitive advantage for our clients.”
