CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Navigant (NYSE: NCI) has been named to the 2017 list of America’s Best Midsize Employers by Forbes magazine. This marks the second consecutive year Navigant has been recognized by the magazine as a top employer.
Forbes, in partnership with Statista.com, conducted an online survey of more than 30,000 American workers spanning midsize and large U.S. companies. The willingness to recommend one's own employer on a scale of 0-10 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.
“I am proud that Navigant continues to be noted as one of the best places to work, not only in our profession, but across all industry sectors,” said Julie Howard, chairman and CEO of Navigant. “The company’s commitment to attracting, retaining, and developing the best talent, while building a culture that encourages excellent client service and collaboration, is vital to our success.”
Navigant was also recognized among the 2017 America’s Best Management Consulting Firms by Forbes magazine. The firm was highlighted in 15 categories overall — 10 industry sectors including healthcare, financial institutions, and energy, as well as several functional areas, including strategy, finance, and risk management.
Navigant’s investments in professional development, and its culture that encourages the open exchange of ideas, diversity, and inclusion, have helped establish the firm among “America’s Best Midsize Employers.”
The firm’s most recent employee engagement survey showed record engagement, driven by a continued focus on employees’ personal development and growth. The survey revealed that 93 percent of Navigant’s global workforce feels personally motivated to contribute to the firm’s success.
Community outreach and volunteerism contribute positively to Navigant’s culture. Navigant’s 1Mx2020 campaign is a firm-wide goal to positively impact one million youth by the year 2020 by preparing them for college and their professional careers.
In addition, Navigant offices across the globe champion local diversity and inclusion activities by sponsoring informational events with a focus on cultural education and valuing differences.
