Great Place to Work determined the Best Workplaces for Women® list by gathering and analyzing confidential employee experience feedback responses from more than 7 million U.S. employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Great Place to Work evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job, including what women themselves report about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men’s reports of the same workplaces. The ranking also factors how well represented women are in the workforce and throughout management, considering industry trends. West Monroe took the No. 96 spot out of 125 companies in the large company category.
“I am incredibly proud that West Monroe has once again earned a spot as a great workplace for women,” said Susan Stelter, West Monroe’s Chief People Officer.
At West Monroe, we pride ourselves on creating a people-first and inclusive culture where all of our people have the tools and resources to be successful. That’s why we thoughtfully create ways to invest in our employees, like the Women Leadership Network employee resource group, which is critical to our mission of building the next generation of leaders.”
The award reflects West Monroe’s intentional investment in policies, benefits and resources that support and retain women and others who may need flexibility. These include flexible work arrangements and time off; generous maternity and paternity-related benefits, investing in employee resource groups specifically designed to support women such as the Women’s Leadership Network and Consulting Moms group, back-up care benefits for children and dependents, as well as family planning and support benefits from Maven Maternity, and more.
