An independent research firm utilized each company’s entry along with an anonymous employee-driven survey to determine the winners. Key measures included compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.
“It’s an honor to be named one of the Bay Area’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the first year we participated in the program,” said Will Wu, a West Monroe senior director and San Francisco office lead. “It can be challenging to maintain and strengthen an exceptional workplace culture during a period of rapid growth, but this award validates the effort every one of our team members makes toward building our inclusive, people-first values since the San Francisco office was established.”
West Monroe’s San Francisco office opened in January 2016 and has since more than doubled in headcount. Its consulting team serves dozens of clients across Northern California in key industries, including private equity, energy and utilities, healthcare, and financial services. The firm expects to hire aggressively over the next several years in response to strong growth projections and momentum in the local market.
Like all of West Monroe’s offices, the San Francisco office maintains a highly participatory and collaborative culture marked by an open work environment; frequent employee meetings and gatherings, including an annual strategic planning retreat; a strong commitment to serving the local community through its 1+1+1 social responsibility program; and a recognition awards program.
Nationally, West Monroe has been listed as a top company to work for by Consulting Magazine, Great Place to Work® Institute and FORTUNE. West Monroe was also named by Great Place to Work as a top workplace for millennials in 2018 and as one of the 50 best workplaces for giving back 2016-2018.
The San Francisco Bay Area’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For will be honored at a symposium and awards celebration on November 5, 2018, at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco.
