Huron Consulting Named One of Best Firms to Work For

Huron Consulting Group announced that it has been named one of the Best Firms to Work For in 2013 by Consulting magazine.

“Huron’s selection as one of Consulting’s 2013 Best Firms to Work For shows that we are doing the right things to help our clients and our employees succeed, and attests to the shared values of the management team and everyone at Huron,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “We know that our success depends on having the best people, which is why our top priority has always been to recruit and retain exceptionally talented individuals who will provide superior value to our clients.”

Huron was recognized for its excellence in several areas, most notably Work/Life Balance.

Huron’s commitment to work/life balance is reflected by its corporate culture. The company provides many benefits for its employees in this area, including flexible Paid Time Off (PTO), a wellness reimbursement account, travel benefits, pet insurance and an adoption assistance program, as well as an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which offers confidential counseling and referral services and assistance with various work/life needs such as childcare placement, college searches, elder care and more. Huron works hard to ensure that employees have the tools and support they need to manage the challenges of daily life.

Huron has been named one of Consulting magazine’s Best Firms to Work For in 2006, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The company’s ongoing commitment to the community brings employees together by helping others through its Huron Helping Hands initiatives. Huron Helping Hands provides support through civic sponsorship, community service projects, pro bono activities and an employee matching gifts program. Huron strives to foster an environment that capitalizes on the ideas, experiences and perspectives of its diverse community of professionals. The company’s Diversity & Inclusion Council leads efforts to promote an atmosphere of inclusiveness.

Currently, there are six employee resource groups (called iMatter Teams) that represent working parents; lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender (LGBT); African Americans, veterans, working women, and the newest team focused on cultural awareness and education. More than 850 employees are actively involved in one or more iMatter teams.

Consulting magazine’s 2013 Best Firms to Work For survey drew detailed employee engagement insights from nearly 13,000 consultants, representing more than 400 consulting firms.
