Slalom Consulting earned the #3 spot in Glassdoor's 2013 Top 25
Companies for Work-Life Balance rankings. This is Slalom's third
consecutive year on the list and highest ranking to date.
"Slalom strives to provide a supportive and flexible environment
for our more than 2,000 employees," said John Tobin, Slalom
Consulting's Co-Founder and President, North America.
"We believe in empowering our employees to have a true balance
between their work and personal life. Our consultants are and
always will be our company's greatest asset and we'll continue to
create a culture of success and innovation."
The consulting industry is traditionally known for demanding
hours and frequent travel. It's a testament to Slalom's local model
that it was the only consulting firm to be ranked in Glassdoor's
Top 25. Slalom's work-where-you-live policy is groundbreaking
amongst consulting companies and means no unwanted travel and more
freedom for its consultants. It also means more satisfied clients
who benefit by working with local experts who understand the local
market and economy while providing top-notch solutions and
services. In addition, Slalom also creates work-life balance
opportunities for employees located near its regional centers via a
National Delivery service model that allows consultants to deliver
work virtually to clients across the U.S.
This ranking resulted directly from current and past employees'
unsolicited feedback recognizing the employers who provided the
best balance between work and personal life over the past year.
Winning attributes included flexible schedules, the option to work
from home, and the ability to more fully contribute to the local
community by living and working in the same city.
The list was compiled using Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm,
and the overall ranking was determined according to each company's
overall Glassdoor rating.
