West Monroe is once again proud to be named a 2022 Best Workplaces in Chicago. The firm ranked No. 2, based on analysis of survey responses from more than 1 million current employees across the U.S along with rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. West Monroe ranked No. 5 in 2021.
“We would once again like to thank Great Place to Work® and Fortune for honoring West Monroe’s Chicago office and our incredible people,” said Tom Hulsebosch, West Monroe’s Chicago office leader. “As the Chicago office and the firm continues to grow, it’s more important than ever we stay true to our core ‘People First’ value by providing meaningful careers and growth opportunities all while building the next generation of leaders. This award wouldn’t be possible without our peoples continued commitment to becoming leaders for our clients, our firm and in the Chicago community.”
Since opening its doors in 2002, West Monroe has grown to more than 2,000 employees, with approximately 975 employees in the Chicago office, and aims to nearly double the local workforce to 1,600 people by 2024. Our Chicago office serves a multitude of clients in the financial services, private equity, consumer and industrial products, energy and utilities, retail, high-tech and software, and healthcare and life sciences industries.
Like all West Monroe offices, the Chicago team is a highly participatory and collaborative culture marked by frequent events, transparent employee communications, a strong commitment to serving the local community through its corporate social responsibility program, and a deep focus on inclusion and diversity through employee-led resource groups.
“As employee demands and expectations have dramatically changed over the past year, these companies have risen to the occasion—and it’s not been easy,” says Kim Peters, executive vice president of global recognition, research & strategic partnerships at Great Place to Work. “Their hard work and dedication to listen to and care for the well-being of every employee, and support them in a way that’s meaningful to all, is the standard all organizations will be held to.”
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization and headquartered in the Chicago metropolitan statistical area. This is West Monroe’s sixth appearance on the Great Place to Work in Chicago list. West Monroe was also recently named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
