As we look forward to closing out another successful year here at Protiviti, we’re so proud to announce that we’ve been named to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list for the second time! Winners were determined entirely based on Glassdoor feedback provided by employees over the past year. With an overall company rating of 4.3, Protiviti stands proudly at #47 out of 100 on the Best Places to Work U.S. Large Companies list.
As a recruiter, I often get asked questions about what differentiates Protiviti and makes it a great place to work. With the news of the Glassdoor award, I couldn’t help but to reflect and I came up with my top 5 reasons I think Protiviti is an extraordinary place to grow a career.
Our Culture, Our People – Company culture is huge. It’s one of the top factors in employee retention and a strong determining piece for prospective candidates. At Protiviti, all our employees have a voice in building the best culture. Our people are empowered to be creative, pitch new ideas and get involved – and they are pretty great at doing so. This, in large part, can be attributed to the fact that they themselves are quite amazing. I’ve been fortunate enough to call many of my co-workers friends, and that is what #LivingProtiviti is all about.
Opportunity to Grow and Be Challenged – As a fairly young company (in the game since 2002), Protiviti is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Not only are we growing in size, but Protiviti also offers employees a wonderful opportunity to grow and be challenged in their careers. Within both the practice and operations, cross-collaboration allows employees to build out their skill sets and see a diverse array of project work. Protiviti also offers financial assistance with programs like certification reimbursement program, which encourages employees who are looking to advance technical skills in their area of focus.
Accessibility to Leadership – Our leadership teams are very present, both globally and in each local market. Throughout my (almost) four year career at Protiviti, I’ve had the opportunity to meet every Executive Team member on more than one occasion. I don’t know how many people can truly say that about their company! Stating ‘open door policy’ and actually having an open door policy can be two very different things, and Protiviti without a doubt holds true to both statements. Not only is leadership a presence at trainings, events, and office outings, but they also participate in programs such as our Advisor Program. The three-tiered Advisor Program is one that we’re really proud of at Protiviti, ensuring all our employees have advisors at the Peer, Career and Executive levels.
Benefits – Let’s talk benefits and perks! Protiviti offers very competitive benefit packages which includes a 401K matching program, an impressive Choice Time Off (CTO) plan, and an Incentive Compensation Program, among other great benefits. Not only do these programs reward employees but they support a culture that promises to recognize employees and provide a strong work/life balance. The perks don’t stop there, though! Protiviti also matches charitable donations to support the local community, which means our people’s hard work makes double the impact. Other programs in place for recognition include iAchieve and WeAchieve awards, “PROPS” points which can be redeemed for some amazing items through Protiviti’s company store, and holiday parties!
Get Involved, Have a Voice – Last, but certainly not least, Protiviti encourages our people to get involved and to feel empowered. We have initiatives and teams in place to support Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace, such as iGroWW, which stands for the Initiative for Growth and Retention of Women in the Workplace, our Multicultural ENG, and our proPRIDE efforts, among others. Protiviti employees also like to have fun. On any given week, you can find a Protiviti team out on a softball field, playing kickball, or on the basketball court thanks to our sports and social committees. While we may not always win the championship, it’s pretty clear to me that we’re still batting way above average.
At the end of the day, there are a lot of different factors that make a company an amazing place to work, but these are just a few of my favorite reasons. Congratulations to everyone here at Protiviti on receiving this honor as a Best Place to Work from Glassdoor, and thank you for all that you do! We are proud of you, Protiviti!
