ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Hill Consulting is the nation's top management consulting firm when it comes to work/life balance and office hours. The family-owned company also earned the number two position on the 2017 Vault Best Boutique Consulting Firms ranking of best places to work, and stands toe-to-toe with the big firms, securing the number 20 spot.
Other areas of recognition include Eagle Hill's culture, satisfaction, diversity, relationship with supervisors, travel requirements, vacation policies and interactions with clients. View Eagle Hill's overall rankings here.
"It's no accident that Eagle Hill continues to lead the way in work/life balance and office hours. We've made this a top strategic priority for the company," said Melissa Jezior, Eagle Hill's founder, president and chief executive officer. "We know that when our employees are rested, happy and empowered, we keep our top talent. And ultimately, our clients reap the benefits."
The Vault Rankings are important because it is an independent validation that Eagle Hill values its employees.
"I said from day one of establishing Eagle Hill that I wanted to build a corporate culture where professionals can give 100 percent of their talent and experience to our clients, but also build the life they want outside of work," Jezior explained. "What's more, we counsel our clients that real, meaningful work/life balance strengthens an organization. So it's all the more important that we at Eagle Hill walk our talk."
This culture contributes to the company's business success. Both employee satisfaction and retention remain above 90 percent, and 100 percent of Eagle Hill clients say they would refer us for business.
The rankings are based on the results of Vault's annual Management and Strategy Consulting Survey. A record 17,139 consulting professionals of all levels assessed their peer consulting firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige (respondents were unable to rate their own employers and rated only firms with which they were familiar). Consultants also rated their own firm's quality of life in such categories as firm culture and compensation, among others. For the purpose of the Vault Consulting 50 Ranking, a weighted formula was used to combine findings from both prestige and quality of life rankings to create one "Best to Work For" category.
Eagle Hill's broke from the pack of large, traditional consulting companies to establish a firm that is truly collaborative, unified in nature and possesses an entrepreneurial spirit. The company considers itself to be a community of consultants, rather than a traditional consultancy. As a result, Eagle Hill is uniquely positioned to help solve client business problems across various industries.
