Arlington, Va., June 27, 2018 – Eagle Hill Consulting has earned the 2018 Washington Post Top Workplaces award in the midsize companies category. The company has earned this award in the past, as well as similar accolades from Washingtonian and The Washington Business Journal. These awards cement Eagle Hill’s position as a top company that values its employees. Notably, the award is based solely on employee feedback.
“I established this company to provide both unconventional management consulting services and an unconventional work environment. We’re doing just that,” says Melissa Jezior, president and chief executive officer of Eagle Hill. “My philosophy is that if you create a workplace where talented and committed professionals are fulfilled and valued, a business thrives,” Jezior explained.
Eagle Hill’s employee survey finds a 93 percent satisfaction rate. Also, 97 percent of employees say Eagle Hill has a collaborative culture, and 92 percent say they would recommend the company as an employer to a friend.
Jezior added, “I take my career seriously, and I am just as serious about my family. So from day one, we structured an environment that empowers our team to provide the highest quality client service and have the life they want outside of work. We’re equally committed to providing our employees with professional development, career advancement, competitive compensation and benefits, and meaningful community service opportunities. It’s this ‘total package’ strategy of delivering what employees need to be successful that ultimately translates into premier service.”
In the company’s most recent client survey, 100 percent indicate they would work with Eagle Hill again, and 100 percent of clients say they would recommend Eagle Hill to a friend or colleague.
“Overwhelmingly, employees of the companies honored on The Post’s Top Workplaces list not only value their workplace’s culture, but they also feel confident in the direction that their companies are going,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “The standouts on this list excel because they focus on engaging their greatest asset: their people.”
Eagle Hill team members explain why the company is considered a top employer:
“Leadership sets a great example at Eagle Hill, delivering for clients and growing the firm, while still prioritizing their vacation and time with family. That flexibility from the top encourages others to do the same, and makes work-life balance a reality at Eagle Hill,” says Jordan Henry, Eagle Hill director in the Seattle office.
“Eagle Hill pays 100% of employees’ health insurance premiums, which is almost unheard of today. That says to me that the company values the health and wellness of me and my family,” says Kathleen Kennard, Eagle Hill director.
“Our community service programs are employee driven. We are giving back because it’s the right thing to do, not because it builds our brand or brings in more business. I value this genuine commitment to volunteerism,” says Kayla McAfee, Eagle Hill associate and corporate citizenship team lead.
“We’ve added two children to our family since I’ve been at Eagle Hill. The support, flexibility and trust I’ve received from the company has enabled me to be successful as a professional and as a parent,” says Tyler Flood, Eagle Hill manager.
Award selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection.
