West Monroe named One of Puget Sound Business Journal’s Washington’s Best Workplaces for 5th consecutive year

West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy, has been recognized as one of “Washington’s Best Workplaces” by Puget Sound Business Journal for the fifth year in a row. The firm was ranked No. 2 out of 25 companies in its category.

The publication surveyed hundreds of nominated businesses in the region, ultimately honoring 100 finalists in one of four size categories: 10 to 49 full-time employees, 50 to 99 full-time employees, 100 to 249 full-time employees and more than 250 full-time employees in Washington state.

“We are honored to be recognized by Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the region’s top employers for the 5th consecutive year,” said Brian Paulen, managing director and head of the firm’s Seattle office. “We remain committed to building a fun, inclusive, people-first culture even as we experience tremendous growth as a firm. This award program tells us we are doing the right thing by investing in our people to develop the next generation of leaders.”

West Monroe’s Seattle office has nearly 100 employees and serves more than 40 clients across the Pacific Northwest in key industries, including banking, insurance, healthcare, retail, and technology. To meet continued strong growth projections, the firm plans significant local hiring in 2018, up to 33 consultants by the end of the year.

Like all West Monroe offices, the Seattle practice maintains a highly participatory and collaborative culture marked by an open work environment, frequent employee meetings and gatherings, a strong commitment to serving the local community through its 1+1+1 social responsibility program, and regular recognition awards.

The final rankings were revealed at the Washington's Best Workplaces event at Safeco Field on Aug. 16 and published in the Aug. 17 print edition. 

Nationally, the firm has been listed as a top company to work for by Consulting Magazine, Great Place to Work® Institute and FORTUNE. West Monroe was also named by Great Place to Work as a top workplace for millennials in 2018 and as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back 2016-2018.
