West Monroe Named one of Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces 2012

West Monroe Partners, a full-service North American business and technology consulting firm, today announced that it has been named one of the Chicago Tribune “Top Workplaces” in 2012. West Monroe was one of 100 employers recognized in the November 13th special report, a collaborative effort between the Chicago Tribune and its partner, Workplace Dynamics LLC, to identify the area’s best places to work.

The report ranked West Monroe Partners 11th among 40 small companies evaluated. The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Workplace Dynamics determined overall and specific attribute rankings by surveying employees of nominated organizations.

“This recognition is particularly gratifying in that it is based exclusively on the voices of our people,” said West Monroe Partners’ President Kevin McCarty, one of the firm’s founders and head of the Chicago office. “In 10 years, our firm has grown and evolved and is a much different enterprise today in terms of our scope and capabilities. But we have never allowed ourselves to grow in a way that compromised the key principle upon which we founded the firm—being a people-first organization.”

Inclusion on the Tribune’s Top Work Places 2012 is the latest in a long list of employer accolades for West Monroe Partners, founded in Chicago in 2002 and now with offices in eight locations across North America. Over the past year, West Monroe Partners has received national recognition as an employer from and Consulting Magazine as well as from leading business publications in two of its primary markets: Chicago and Seattle.

The Chicago Tribune published the complete list of Top Workplaces on Tuesday, November 13th. For more information about the Top Workplaces lists and WorkplaceDynamics, please visit and
