Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that it has been named one of Consulting magazine’s 2012 Best Firms to Work For. “Being chosen two years in a row as one of Consulting magazine’s Best Firms to Work For is an honor and an indication that we are doing the right things to help our people succeed,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “The recognition highlights our longstanding commitment and focus on our people and our Company values.” The Company was recognized for its excellence in several areas:
- Work/Life Balance. Huron is committed to promoting a healthy work-life balance for its employees. The Company provides a generous and flexible time off policy that allows employees to work remotely or on variable schedules to accommodate family and personal obligations. To ease the demands of heavy workloads and out-of-town travel, Huron offers all full-time employees a reimbursement account for various wellness expenses as part of a broader wellness program and a travel recognition program for those who travel frequently.
- Career Development. Huron provides its people with training, coaching and mentoring to enable them to achieve career goals. The Company supports its people as they transition to new jobs and/or reach major milestones. New employees are oriented with an onboarding process that helps them acclimate to the Company, while more senior employees benefit from a structured milestone training to help progress in their careers. The environment centers on coaching and ongoing professional development opportunities including a balance of on-the-job training and formal training opportunities through the Company’s Huron Academy.
- Commitment to the Community. Huron encourages its people to get involved in the communities in which they live and work. Our employees share experiences and apply their professional skills while giving back through volunteerism, which is a fundamental part of Huron’s values. Huron Helping Hands brings employees together to support local community organizations that include Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs and the American Cancer Society. This May, Huron employees celebrated the Company’s 10th anniversary by participating in 33 community service events with 31 different organizations worldwide.
