Yardstick Management Named to Inc.’s 2022 Best in Business in Management Consulting

3rd annual list recognizes 241 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2022 / -- Yardstick Management has been named to the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the Management Consulting category. This is the second year in a row Yardstick makes the list. Last year they won the Bronze award in the Human Resources category and this year they are the first to be recognized in the Management Consulting category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.

The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 13), and online, recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.

Yardstick Management was especially recognized for its transformative work this past year impacting the lives of thousands of employees across industries in the workplace through management consulting services provided by the company. The full Inc Magazine feature shares the story of the Founder and Managing Partner, Ebbie Parsons and more details on the innovative and strategic solutions Yardstick has developed to make a positive difference in global organizations.

“It’s an honor to receive this exceptional award which recognizes our ‘heart’ work! We truly believe in our mission of leveling the playing field for marginalized people and we do that by ensuring companies we partner with are creating equitable opportunities for their people across all levels and functions of their organizations. This is truly critical work that speaks to our purpose and it’s so rewarding to see it recognized and amplified by Inc. Magazine to support us at Yardstick on our journey of doing good,” says Ebbie Parsons, Founder and CEO of Yardstick Management.

Rather than relying solely on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 55 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year. Honorees for general excellence across various industries and categories are featured online at

Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “Inc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them.”
