Building a Team Culture that Cares

Step inside our TTA office and you are immediately immersed into an atmosphere filled with laughter, enthusiasm, and occasionally a friendly barking dog. Whether you visit us in person or connect virtually, you’ll immediately feel this positive and exciting vibe. We love working together at TTA!

This positive workplace that promotes employee growth, engagement, and innovation didn’t happen overnight. For years, it has been nurtured and fueled by our role model and CEO, Maria Melfa. She leads TTA with compassion, collaboration, and whole lot of humor,

Her influential leadership and genuine dedication to helping others is the reason she has received numerous awards for women-run workplace of the year, top best workplaces, and dedicated service to helping military families. TTA’s recognition doesn’t stop there. Beyond making TTA a great place to work, Maria embraces change in the L&D marketplace and continues to offer exceptional services, so companies are prepared to handle the complex and changing needs of the industry.

This resilience and ability to quickly transform as an organization, has led to several new industry awards by Brandon Hall Group and Training Industry, Inc. for content development, leadership training, sales training, excellence in learning, and onboarding.

Thank you Maria for making TTA a great place to work!

Fun
Days

Fun Days are an integral part of TTA’s culture. In the business world where stress is high and digital devices are ever-present, our employees are given five Fun Days per year to spontaneously take a day off and enjoy themselves. These Fun Days are in addition to the vacation time that TTA employees get.

Whether it’s an impromptu beach trip in the middle of the summer or a quick ski trip during the winter, there is no need to schedule these days off in advance or feel guilty about waking up one morning and taking off work.

What Our Employees

Have to Say

TTA allows me work-life balance. It’s as simple as that. I spend more time at work happy, more time with family happy, and more time with friends happy. I recognized that this was important to me in order to feel fulfilled and TTA was the first company to provide that to me. I am grateful that I finally get to live a life that’s comfortable and am inspired to work hard at my job every day.

I’ve made lifelong friends out of colleagues and customers and I couldn’t feel more rewarded for the work I do and the life I’ve been able to create with my family. I am a TTA lifer, as long as they’ll have me!

TTA is a very special place to work. We have a CEO that emulates our core values every day. We work hard but have fun! We collaborate and share our strengths, we enjoy laughter. We are encouraged to give open and honest feedback.

Work/life balance is very important to TTA we have the flexibility to work hybrid and adjust our schedules as needed. Our leaders show empathy and truly care about each and everyone one on our team.

I gave the ratings I gave because people here have impacted me positively since day 1. While keeping a relaxed and lowkey environment, TTA manages to remain one of the most productive and success-oriented workplaces I’ve worked in.

The first thing you notice when interacting with TTA employees is that they are happy. It really is that simple!

I have worked at many places and TTA is the only place I have felt like my opinion matters, where my teammates and management really care, and where I am treated as a professional.

TTA values the work every employee does and trusts you to get the work done, without micro-managing. It is very clear that they know who they hired and are confident in that decision.

My experience working with TTA has been phenomenal. I trust where our leadership is taking us because if things are working the way we envisioned, TTA isn’t afraid to make adjustments or pivot on the fly.

We are constantly thinking outside the box and working in an agile manner. The support on a personal level is unmatched.
