No. 2 Small Company: Boly:Welch Consulting | Recruiting
This company offers some pretty nice perks: spring break massages, an ice cream tab, and a Hood to Coast relay team. But what employees seem to really appreciate about this recruiting and consulting firm are the flexible schedules, family-friendly atmosphere and attention to work-life balance. “Not a day goes by that positions and processes aren’t considered to create a more equitable and positive environment in which to do our jobs and enjoy our lives,” says one employee. “Recruiting, historically, can be ruthless,” comments another employee. “But that is the farthest from the truth in this office. We laugh, we act as a giant team and we pay compliments forward.” Employees also like the fact that staff opinions count. “This is a very entrepreneurial environment,” says one worker. “The partners support initiatives that are raised as ideas from the team members.” Caring and supportive owners are another plus. “When we face a problem, they move heaven and earth to help fix it,” observes one employee. “There’s really no place like it.”
Those sentiments and benefits have helped land this company on the 100 Best list 9 times. It has been on the top 10 list three times.
