West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy, today announced it ranked No. 1 in the Small and Medium Companies category as part of the 2019 Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. The ranking considered feedback representing over 339,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations in the consulting and professional services industry.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.
“It’s an honor to be recognized among other leading firms on this list for the third consecutive year, and especially to take the No. 1 spot,” said Susan Stelter, West Monroe’s chief people officer and one of the firm’s co-founders.
“Our people-first culture is fundamental to who we are as a company. We make it a priority to ensure we are delivering on our mission of developing the next generation of leaders by providing our employees an environment to grow and empowering them to best serve our clients and communities. While we don’t do what we do for awards, it’s exciting to have our commitment to our people endorsed by Great Place to Work.”
Founded in 2002 in Chicago, West Monroe has grown to nine offices across the United States and more than 1,100 employees. It has received numerous national and regional accolades for its workplace and people practices. Great Place to Work and Fortune previously recognized West Monroe as a Best Workplace for Recent Grads, Best Workplace for Giving Back, Best Workplace for Millennials and Best Medium Workplaces overall.
“Consulting and professional services companies operate in some of the most competitive spaces and endure the challenges of unpredictable and rapidly changing markets,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “The Best Workplaces on this list have invested in the professional development and personal care of their employees, which have become crucial parts of their value proposition that separate them from the competition in recruiting and retaining talent.”
