SEATTLE, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Behind every one of the innovative and successful local businesses are great people who are passionate about their companies, customers, and communities. To find out which Seattle-based organizations are ranked highest by their own people, Seattle Business Magazine surveyed thousands of employees and consulted an expert panel of judges to determine the 100 Best Companies to Work For. This year, Slalom Consulting took home fourth place out of several hundred businesses in the large company category.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by Seattle Business Magazine," says Brian Jacobsen, general manager of Slalom Seattle. "Further, taking fourth place in the large company category is a testament to what we try to do every day — build a transparent organization which attracts and keeps top talent for the long term. It's great to be recognized for what we already know — that Slalom Consulting is a great place to work."
Companies were judged on benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring and retention, performance standards, responsibility and decision making, rewards and recognition, training and education, and work environment. Awards were presented during a cocktail reception and dinner at the Westin Seattle on June 14, hosted by Brock Huard, with a keynote by Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll.
As a best place to work, Slalom has been recognized for their unique culture and fostering a healthy environment for employees to succeed and grow. Slalom was ranked highest in the "responsibilities and decision making" category, emphasizing the approach the company takes to fostering an environment of accountability while giving employees the latitude and authority to create solutions through teamwork.
