Imagine a management consulting firm with a “No unwanted travel” policy. To avoid the grueling travel schedules faced by many of their peers at other firms, Slalom consultants work with local clients backed by national teams in 17 offices across the country. As _one consultant told us, “We can sleep in our own beds each night.” Employees also fill out a Meaningful Work Index weekly so that their managers can quickly identify problem areas. Another favorite here is a sabbatical policy where consultants get a paid month off every three years. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
