Oliver Wyman Named One Of The 2019 Best Workplaces In Texas By FORTUNE
Mar 20, 2019
Dallas – Oliver Wyman is one of the 2019 Best Workplaces in Texas, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
The ranking is based on survey feedback of more than 42,000 Texas-based employees. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie, and workplace traits linked to innovation. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for them. It also accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, older team members, and disabled employees.
Oliver Wyman has Texas-based offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston. The firm was noted for:
- Apprenticeship Model – Oliver Wyman supports colleagues’ ability to discover and develop their talents and one way the firm does that is by matching new hires up with a buddy, Career Advisor, and Talent Manager who are all tasked with mentoring and minding colleagues’ development.
- Commitment to Work Life Sustainability – Various programs such as The Way We Work and FlexOW ensure employees have a sustainable work/life balance. Team comradery and off-site events happen throughout the year.
- BOOST – A program designed to support parents before, during, and after a leave of absence for additions to their families.
- Volunteering and Social Impact – All employees receive eight hours of paid time off for volunteering, which can be spent with an individual's preferred charity or group projects arranged by a community leader in each office. Our offices regularly work with a wide range of charitable organizations to broaden our social impact in the communities where we live. For example, members of the Dallas office developed a grassroots program with Back on My Feet, an organization that aims to combat homelessness through the power of running. Employees regularly volunteer at morning runs plus host mock-interview sessions and computer literacy classes where participants can learn skills such as how to maintain a monthly budget and update a resume.
"Our team in Texas is thrilled with this honor. We are dedicated to creating an innovative, inclusive, and engaged culture so all of our employees feel supported, have stimulating career opportunities, and feel connected to our vibrant and growing company,” said Birgit Andersen, Oliver Wyman’s Dallas Office Leader.
“Explosive metro-area growth and some of the lowest unemployment rates in the country put intense pressure on Texas employers to ensure their workplaces are attractive to top talent,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Oliver Wyman stand out from the crowd, providing a workplace where people with a broad range of backgrounds can contribute to the success and innovation of organizations ranking among the best in the nation.”
