Huron Consulting Group Named Among Consulting Industry's Best Places to Work
Consulting magazine Ranks Huron as One of the Best Firms to Work For in 2011
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that it has been recognized by Consulting magazine as one of the Best Firms to Work For in 2011.
"It is an honor for Huron Consulting Group to be selected as one of Consulting magazine's Best Firms to Work For in 2011. The recognition provides a sense of pride and validation for the firm and our employees, and we are very pleased to be recognized as being among an elite group of our peers,"said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. "Our people and our clients always take center stage. The leadership team, and everyone at Huron, share a focus on teamwork, collaboration, and delivering excellent client service. When you live those priorities every day, they define your company's culture."
The Company received the recognition in part because:
- Huron is committed to its employees and provides generous time off which allows for a great deal of flexibility. The time off policy is on a "take what you need"basis within reason and allows some employees to work remotely or on variable schedules to accommodate family and outside obligations. To recognize some of the challenges related to significant out of town travel and promote a better balance between work and employees' personal time, Huron offers all full time employees a work/life balance reimbursement account and a travel recognition program for those with heavy travel schedules.
- In addition, Huron's commitment to the community has continued to bring employees together by helping others through Huron's Helping Hands initiatives. Huron's smart and hardworking people not only apply their skills and share their enthusiasm with our clients, but also in their personal causes and interests. Huron's Helping Hands program encompasses the three most valuable resources a charitable organization needs to survive - time, talent and treasure. Huron, through the support of its leadership team, is fortunate to be active in many communities through Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs, American Cancer Society, and many other philanthropic organizations.
The Company will mark its 10th anniversary in May 2012. Huron has a portfolio of service offerings focused on helping clients address complex business challenges. The Company has three operating segments: Health and Education Consulting; Legal Consulting; and Financial Consulting, representing 65%, 26%, and 9% of June year-to-date total revenues, respectively. Since commencing operations in May 2002, Huron has conducted more than 11,000 engagements for more than 4,100 clients. The Company has also worked with more than 90 of the top 100 research universities, more than 275 General Counsels, and nine of the top 10 largest healthcare systems ranked by Modern Healthcare.
