Independent survey of employees identifies the best large and midsize companies
Navigant Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: NCI), a specialized, global professional services firm, was named among the 2016 Best Midsize Employers in America by Forbes magazine.
Forbes, in partnership with Statista.com, conducted an online survey of more than 30,000 American workers spanning midsize and large U.S. companies, nonprofits and government agencies. The willingness to recommend one's own employer on a scale of 1-10 was given the most weight in the survey. Secondarily, employees were asked to mention good or bad employers in other sectors/industries other than their own. The list of 250 midsize companies is comprised of those with at least 100 mentions and 20 direct recommendations in the online survey.
“This is an exciting time in Navigant’s evolution. As a professional services firm, top talent is how firms remain relevant and add value to clients. I am confident in our ability to attract and retain the best talent across our core industries as we continue to innovate and evolve as a Firm. Our people give us the competitive edge - this accolade recognizes our employees’ exceptional talents and commitment to helping clients build, manage, and protect their value in the face of significant change and risk,” said Julie Howard, Navigant chairman and CEO.
As part of Navigant’s evolution and strategic growth plan, the leadership team has emphasized programming to create transparency and acknowledge expectations for every job level in the Firm’s strategic growth plan. Through investments in professional development, recruiting focus in key growth industries, supporting an open exchange of ideas, encouraging an inclusive culture, and understanding the needs of colleagues and clients, Navigant has established its reputation as among “America’s Best Midsize Employers”:
