In a recent survey of consultants from the world's top firms, ZS Associates, a global sales and marketing consulting firm, was named one of the industry's best employers. The company, which employs more than 1,000 consultants in 18 offices around the world, placed seventh on Consulting Magazine's Best Firms to Work For 2009 list.
More than 200 companies were rated by their consultants in a variety of categories, including company morale, training, impact of work on clients and travel. ZS Associates placed in the top 10 in morale and in the top five on the question, "How often do consultants feel their work has a positive impact on clients?" Additionally, ZS' 46.6 hours of annual training is among the best in the industry.
"We've known for years that ZS is a great place to work. But this recognition shows that our continuous efforts to improve for both our employees and our clients have been successful," said ZS Managing Director Jaideep Bajaj. "Being ranked so highly on client impact shows just how committed our people are to being responsive and providing valuable solutions to our clients."
In developing the list, Consulting Magazine editors surveyed more than 10,000
people across 236 consultancies -- a record high for the survey -- and created
two sets of rankings: one for large firms that employ at least 500 consultants
and another for small firms that employ between 20 and 499 consultants. ZS
Associates falls into the large firm category.
"This year, in particular, the firms on our annual Best Firms to Work For list
truly represent the profession's gold standard," said Joe Kornik, editor in
chief of Consulting Magazine. "These firms not only offered outstanding
service to their clients, but they also kept their own employees front and
center in extremely challenging and even unprecedented economic conditions.
For that they should be celebrated."
