Jabian Consulting

Jabian Consulting Company Profile


Old school values, new school thinking

Atlanta-based consulting firm Jabian is a local operation. With its roots firmly planted in Georgia, employees enjoy local brand recognition, zero travel time, and the satisfaction of investing in their community's businesses-all while working at a cutting edge firm. The firm was founded in 2006 by Brian Betkowski, Nigel Zelcer, and Chris Reinking, three coworkers at a "Big Five" consulting shop. All current partners in Jabian, the trio built the firm around three major principles: client service, local focus, and an innovative, entrepreneurial spirit.

Priding itself on its ability to tackle its clients toughest issues, Jabian focuses on the big picture, make or break factors of doing business, including business strategy, customer interaction, human capital management, operational excellence and technology optimization and execution.

Though the firm considers itself "old school," Jabian often comes by its clients' solutions in a unique way: via off-hours Innovation Councils, where employees brainstorm for fun, not fees, and challenge themselves to think way outside the box-and often the bounds of their engagements. Results have ranged from innovative social media apps to brand new revenue models.

Jabian has earned national acclaim from Consulting Magazine as one of the Seven Small Jewels to Watch, and from the National Association of Business Resources, receiving the Best and Brightest award three years in a row. The Company has also gained local recognition from Atlanta Journal Constitution as a Great Places to Work three years running.

Work locally with entrepreneurial freedom

With employee turnover rates running at less than five percent, Jabian must be doing something right in terms of job satisfaction. Local focus has a lot to do with that: fewer than five percent of Jabian's consultants have had to travel for work, with the travel itself representing less than one percent of their working time. As for the work itself, the company prides itself on giving employees a true work-life balance, the ability to spend time on "career focused activities", and providing consultants with projects that do not require travel. When on the job, Jabian reports that most of its employees' time is spent at client sites, and that a "career, not job" focus allows consultants to hone expand and diversify skills. Social events like corporate and mentor lunches help keep the group close knit between projects.

Home grown business

Community is very important to Jabian, and it's a mutually beneficial relationship. The company cites many bankable upsides to staying local, including a deeper cultural understanding of clients, strong reputation in the community, and closer relationships, both with clients and between team members. Jabian re-invests in the area that feeds it through both professional and charitable involvement-which includes the firm's own non-profit, (501(c)3 charitable foundation, Jabian Cares. But perhaps its strongest advantage is visibility: since all employees are local, their presence around town encourages clients old and new to feel a sense of solidarity, security, and support-and to keep coming back for more.
