August 16, 2023 | Global News, News Germany

The renowned seal of quality “World’s Best Management Consulting Firms” proves companies are in excellent hands with Staufen. Once again, the US business magazine Forbes named Staufen one of the best consulting companies in its 2023 ranking; Staufen was also awarded this prestigious honor in 2022. Thanks to its specialized expertise and international orientation with locations around the world – including Atlanta, Mexico City, and Sao Paulo in the Americas – Staufen has earned an outstanding reputation as a top consultancy with broad market positioning. 

“We’re honored to receive this award for the second year in a row, and it encourages us to continue down the path we have blazed. This Forbes list, which is updated annually, serves as an aid and compass for companies that are seeking a world-class consulting partner. Staufen has earned a top position in this ranking thanks to its high-quality work and unique approach to rolling-up our sleeves and working side-by-side on our customers’ most challenging operational performance and workforce development issues” says Nick Phillips, partner at Staufen and manager of the US offices. It’s success factors include the company’s operational excellence and workforce development expertise and global expert network: “Here in the USA, we can also rely on resources in Mexico, Germany, Brazil, and the rest of the Staufen world at any time. Plus, we have a wealth of knowledge in our Training and Development Academy, which we benefit from as well. This close cooperation distinguishes Staufen.”
