This recognition marks the 5th time in the past 10 years that NABR has included West Monroe Partners on its annual list of Chicago-area employers that deliver exceptional human resources practices and an impressive commitment to their employees.
“We are extremely honored and proud to be included in this list of Chicago’s premier workplaces,” said Kevin McCarty, Co-Founder and Chicago Office Managing Director. “Although West Monroe Partners has grown by many times since our first appearance on this list in 2006, we still take our commitment to providing a people-first workplace extremely seriously. It is a commitment upon which we will not yield.”
