SEATTLE, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Slalom Consulting, a national business and technology consulting firm, 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.
