West Monroe Partners, a progressive business and technology consultancy, has been named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces in the United States on its 2017 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in Fortune magazine. Ranked No. 3 out of 100 in midsize category, this is the fifth consecutive year West Monroe has received this honor.
Divided into two categories, Small (25-100 employees) and Medium (101-999 employees), the list has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past 12 years. This ranking considered 74,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. West Monroe earned a spot on this list based on co-workers’ assessment of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards, and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace. |
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a best firm yet again,” said Kevin McCarty, President and CEO of West Monroe. “We didn’t set out to be an award-winning company when we opened our doors 15 years ago, but we did seek to be a people-first organization. This vision guides everything we do, from extending our 100-percent employee ownership model to all of our people, to making it our mission to build the next generation of leaders.”
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work®. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
"The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®.
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work–Certified™ organizations. West Monroe also ranked as a best workplace for Giving Back and Millennials, Consulting and Professional Services and Best Small and Medium Workplaces in Chicago by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
The ranking was based on anonymous feedback from more than 74,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Employees completed a Trust Index™ survey with more than 50 questions assessing pride, camaraderie, executive effectiveness, innovation, benefits, professional development and other elements of a great workplace. Scores also considered organizations’ performance relative to their size and industry, as well as their ability to provide a great workplace for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do. Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level. Organizations with 10 to 99 employees were considered for the small workplaces list and those with 100-999 employees were considered for the medium list.
