West Monroe is once again proud to be named one of the Best Workplaces for Parents by Fortune and Great Place to Work®. This is West Monroe’s third consecutive year named to this list, ranking No. 74 for 2021.
Great Place to Work determined the Best Workplaces for Parents® by gathering and analyzing confidential employee experience feedback responses from more than 6 million U.S. employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations that have at least 50 responses from parents. Great Place to Work’s analysis also focused on how parents’ workplace experiences compare to those of their non-parent colleagues, and reviewed each company’s parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare, and dependent health care benefits.
“At West Monroe, we pride ourselves on creating a people-first and inclusive culture where all of our employees feel welcomed and supported,” said Susan Stelter, West Monroe’s chief people officer.
Parents have always had a unique and challenging role to create balance, but the pandemic brought this to new heights from navigating both remote work and online schooling to childcare accommodations challenges and more. I am proud of the work we have done to ensure we have programs and options that support our working parents during these difficult times, and I am even more proud of every parent that navigated these challenges alongside us with incredible grace.”
The award reflects West Monroe’s investment in family-friendly policies and programs, and the firm’s continued positive experiences for working parents– including generous parental leave for both primary and secondary caregivers, flexible work arrangements, mental health listening sessions on topics such as caregiving, flexible time off, parenthood benefits through Maven, peer support through our Consulting Moms group, and backup care offerings – designed to benefit all employees, not just parents.
Nationally, West Monroe has received numerous national and regional accolades for its workplace and people practices. Great Place to Work previously recognized West Monroe as one of the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Best Workplace in Consulting and Professional Services, and more. Our award-winning culture is built on the belief that investing in our people and building the next generation of leaders is key to our success.
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.
