Seattle Business magazine honored its 100 Best Companies to Work For at an awards dinner June 20, 2013. The winners, hailing from 18 cities across the state of Washington, were chosen based on extensive surveys sent to nearly 10,000 employees. The top winners in each category were selected from among the top scorers by a panel of expert judges.
West Monroe ranked fifth on a list of thirteen companies headquartered outside of Washington and earned high rankings in the Leadership of Executives category which is defined as: encourage employees to do well, inspire team spirit, respect employees and their opinions, promote diversity, encourage employees to take leadership and build strong relationships based on trust.
“We are honored to be named one of the Best Companies to Work For in Washington for the third year in a row,” said Tom Bolger, managing director and founder of the Seattle office. “To be a great place to work you have to create an atmosphere that enables all employees to contribute new game changing ideas. We pride ourselves on building an environment that requires innovative, creative minds, who demand the best from themselves, our teams, and our clients to foster new ideas that engage the entrepreneur in us all.”
Founded in 2002, West Monroe Partners has grown to a nearly $65 million consultancy and headcount to over 350 consultants. The Seattle office was founded in 2005 and has grown to over 40 employees. Key industries served by the Seattle office include banking, energy & utilities, healthcare, insurance and private equity.
In addition to this most recent award, West Monroe Partners has been listed as a top company to work for nationally by Consulting Magazine and Vault Inc.
Michael Romoser, associate publisher of Seattle Business magazine, said, “This was the largest attendance in the history of Best Companies to Work For. It reflects the continuing popularity of the program and a sincere appreciation of companies that are committed to outstanding communication and collaboration.”
To be considered for the Best Workplaces list, applicants must submit a formal nomination, participate in an employee satisfaction survey conducted by an independent third-party, and then be selected by a panel of judges from previously recognized workplaces throughout the state.
