Making Waves On and Off the Field of Consulting

Anna Kelly

For good reason, Impact Advisors is known in the healthcare IT consulting industry as a tough competitor. Our company has received multiple Best in KLAS® awards including Best Overall Services Provider twice since our inception. Our consultants are known as the best due to our work ethic, dedication and determination. However, what isn’t so well highlighted is our drive to assist our communities whenever possible.

Many employees are able to carve out time to participate in community service by utilizing Impact Advisors’ Volunteer Time-Off Policy in which each employee receives 24 PTO hours to be used for volunteer activities. Others have participated in organized events such as Feed My Starving Children, an organization that provides hand-packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children all around the world, or Move for the Kids Run/Walk 5K for improving the health and well-being of Chicago’s kids.

Run to Homebase is an annual event for Impact Advisors and it took place this month. This is a yearly run/walk event that helps Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families heal from the invisible wounds of war — post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury — through clinical care, community education and research. Each year, Impact Advisors employees are encouraged to sign up to either run, walk or attend as a part of a cheer squad. It is a way for all of us to raise money for a great cause and an excuse to meet up for a great weekend in Boston, MA….and to FINALLY get a peek inside Fenway Park. Over the past four years, 25 runners/walkers and cheerers from Impact Advisors have raised over $16,000. Getting involved in our communities to give back to those in need is important and something Impact Advisors prides themselves on!

Personally, by giving me these opportunities each year, Impact Advisors provides the support and environment I need to thrive on and off my client engagements. These opportunities have provided me with the foresight to appreciate what I have and assist me in keeping my work/life balance in perspective. In turn, I am more committed each year to thrive on and off the field of consulting.
