West Monroe Partners was one of 35 Columbus-area employers recognized overall, and it ranked sixth among 10 companies named in the small business (25 to 99 local employees) category. This is the first year West Monroe Partners has been nominated for inclusion on this list of best Columbus workplaces.

West Monroe Partners, a North American business and technology consulting firm, today announced that it has been named one of Columbus Business First’s 2011 Best Places to Work.

“West Monroe Partners is built on a foundation of people-centered core values,” said Sean Adkins, who has led West Monroe Partners’ Columbus office since its inception. “We believe that focusing on the type of environment and experiences we offer our people translates directly into the quality of service we deliver to our clients. That philosophy is responsible for the growth and reputation we have earned in Columbus.”

Established in 2005, West Monroe Partners’ Columbus office today comprises a team of 40 consultants who provide business and technology solutions for clients locally and across North America. The Columbus office also is the center of excellence for West Monroe Partners’ Workforce Optimization practice.

“Our Columbus team exemplifies West Monroe Partners’ focus on people, innovation, and distinctive service,” said Dean Fischer, the firm’s president and CEO. “Not only has this team become better known locally as it has grown; it has established a strong reputation across the continent—and that means exceptional opportunities and experience for our people in Columbus.”

The Best Places to Work program, launched in 2005, is open to any company or organization with a Central Ohio office with at least 10 full-time employees. Applications are handled through Omaha, Neb.-based Quantum, which administers a survey to employees with about 30 questions regarding their work environments.

Business First named Best Places to Work finalists in four categories: large companies with more than 500 local employees; medium companies with 100 to 499 local employees; small companies with between 25 and 99 workers; and micro companies with 10 to 24 employees.

Business First recognized the finalists during a November 9 luncheon and in a supplement published in its November 11 issue.
