Here are some of the comments made by Koya’s team members as part of the survey:

Koya is such an amazing company to work for. You are constantly supported by every team member and everyone is willing to help others. The company is led by strong, intelligent, empowering women who are looking to help others and change the world. They are also extremely talented and educated which provides so much space for learning. Working at Koya is such a blessing because everyone not only supports you, but you are also pushed to learn and strive to be better. We strive for excellence and I think that we constantly exhibit this. The supportive, empowering, and respectful culture is one of a kind. Koya is a growing company that impacts the life of our clients, candidates, and employees every day.

Koya is the ideal environment for professionals in the staffing industry. At the helm of the organization is a senior leadership team that lives and breathes nonprofit executive search and the work of our clients. The commitment to our clients is unparalleled to other staffing firms I’ve worked for. For young professionals like myself, this in an environment that fosters unbelievable growth by challenging staff everyday to perform at an exemplary level. We are motivated everyday by the work our clients do, and that is the most significant motivator to our team members.

Koya is an exceptional place to work. It’s rare to find an organization that is human capital focused in its service AND invests time and resources into its people internally – Koya is that and more. Such a dedicated and inspiring group of people. You have opportunities to grow and learn, while working alongside some of the most talented professionals in the industry. In our work – we get to place talented social change leaders in high impact leadership roles at nonprofits across the country and world. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Koya Leadership Partners “walks the talk” of employee engagement and support better than any company I have ever seen. The leadership and culture are uniquely attuned to the needs of staff, which ensures an unusually high level of thoughtfulness behind policies, benefits, and work resources. The careful attention to hiring also ensures impeccable culture fit for every staff member that joins the team, which only builds upon and grows the intention behind the culture.

Our co-founder and President cares deeply about each and every employee, both personally and professionally. This is a place you can be your full self and be supported. This is a place I hope to retire with, which is why I would rate it so highly.
