The Protiviti Perspective

At Protiviti, we strive every day to help you face the future with confidence. We do this by listening closely to you, focusing on understanding your organization and helping you discover previously unseen opportunities and risks. We believe the most productive relationships inside our company and with you, are defined by collaboration where all voices are heard and business problems are considered from multiple perspectives. This process allows us to craft tailored solutions and teams for you and leads to outcomes that help you drive great business performance and protect enterprise value.

Central to our approach is valuing the perspective of individuals. To celebrate the unique perspective that our people seek to bring to you on each project, here on our website and in some of our materials you will see the notation on photographs – Protiviti Perspective. These photographs are generously shared by Protiviti professionals from around the world who captured these images during their daily commutes, business travels, work days, evenings, weekends, vacations and sabbaticals. We believe these photographs reflect the diverse, global perspectives that you value from our people and are a reminder of what we strive to deliver each day in helping you face the future with confidence.

Included on this page is a gallery of some of the images you will find on our website and in our materials. We are proud to share the unique perspective of our people and appreciate all the contributions they make to our organization. 


"Target Your Efforts" by Richard McDonald (Waterloo)

"I prefer candid moments to posed compositions. As a ​​​result, I often find myself wading into a cold mountain stream before sunrise, or under a liberal coating of sunscreen beneath the midday intensity of the desert sun, or lying in long grass with an insect or flower an inch from my lens. Whatever the setting, that’s where I need to be, because that’s where the shot is!"

"Balloons at Sunrise" by Matthew Beachnau (Ohio Valley)​

"I took this photo when my wife and I were on a trip in Napa a couple of years ago. She is absolutely terrified of heights, and I'm not super fond of them either, but we took a leap of faith and climbed aboard a hot air balloon. I remember it was sunrise over the vineyards, and we were having an adventure. In fact, I submitted this image because it reminds me of our adventurous, young company and how we're always trying to take on new challenges"

"Synchronicity of Color" by Brandon Wa​rdlaw (Houston)

Brandon Wardlaw

"My personal interes​​​​ts draw me toward​s focusing mostly upon architecture and public art, infrastructure, and commerce – things that are often taken for granted, but serve as symbols of human ingenuity and creativity."

"Chicago Sunrise" by Fredric​k Brewer (Chicago)​

"I took this photo on my way to the office, while I was waiting on the train. I tend to take pictures to post to Instagram and Facebook to keep a record of places, food, events, and friends."

"Streets of Toulouse" by Julia Berchtold (San Francisco)

"If there ever was proof that Protiviti hires creative, engaged individuals, this is it! I think it also reminds us that we all have a lens, but we don’t have to use it the same way. It’s a reminder, whether we’re walking to work or walking along the Seine, to try and look at the world in a new way. Take a moment and glance behind you, make eye contact with a stranger, search for a reflection in a puddle, or wake up a few minutes earlier and watch the sun rise.​"

"Endless Celebration" by Hirunda Kanaharaarachchi (Canberra)

"Capturing portraits of everyday people is something​ I really love. I usually take lots of photos of people whenever I travel. My friends are not very happy with it since I don't take many pictures of the landscape and surroundings. I love capturing raw candid emotions of people. You can really tell a story just by looking through their eyes.​"

"Walking to Exceptional" by David Pressman (Denver)

David Pressman

"It's sort of funny how this all worked out, because this photo truly encapsulates my experience at Protiviti – both in front of the lens and behind it. I started my Protiviti career in the New York office, and during my time there, I became extremely familiar with the hallway you see in this photo. I've walked down that corridor after a lot of long nights and to start many early mornings. I was staffed on the client in that building for over a year before transferring out to Protiviti's Denver office.  I moved to Colorado for several reasons, but one of the biggest was to have the outdoors and all that it has to offer right at my doorstep. After finding so many cool places while exploring my new home, I decided to buy a camera to document my journeys. Fast forward a few weeks: I'm back in New York in the building that's shaped my career thus far, with the camera I only have because I moved to Colorado (an opportunity granted to me by Protiviti) to better enjoy everything I get to do now outside of Protiviti.

I also feel like this photo is incredibly collective to the people at Protiviti, especially the younger consultants.  As fresh consultants, a lot of our time is filled with uncertainty, but we all walk down that long metaphorical hallway, ready to take on whatever may lay on the other side."
