Follows L.E.K. Being Recently Named Among Vault Top 10 Best Firms to Work for in North America

London, Sydney (23 February 2023) – Global strategy consultancy L.E.K. Consulting is once again ranked among the 10 best consulting firms to work for in both the Europe and Asia-Pacific regions, according to the newly released 2023 Vault rankings of consulting firms around the world by Firsthand. L.E.K. had earlier in the year been named by Firsthand as one of the top 10 firms to work for in North America.

L.E.K. was rated highly overall by its employees across the regions. In Europe, employees ranked the firm particularly high in terms of international opportunities, the level of challenges it lets employees address and formal training for its people. In Asia-Pacific, they ranked L.E.K. highly in the same categories as well as for the benefits it provides to its people and the firm’s culture.

“Being recognized globally for the second consecutive year as one of the top ten consulting firms to work for in Firsthand’s Vault Consulting 50 rankings is an honour for L.E.K. It’s not only an acknowledgement of the strong, collaborative culture that we share but it’s also an indication of the high level of work our people deliver for our clients,” said Clay Heskett, Global Managing Partner at L.E.K. Consulting.

Here is what L.E.K.’s people said about the firm:

  • "L.E.K. has a flat hierarchy where everyone is given the opportunity to express their ideas and be heard. It's client-centred but also people-focused which ensures that our client needs are met without compromising the needs of our people. And although we take our work seriously, our teams and even our most senior leaders know how to lighten up and have some good fun as well."

  • “High employee morale, with notably increased retention. Good business outlook, and strong leadership that is very responsive to employee concerns, and the broader economic environment. 

  • “Incredible exposure to senior leadership from the get-go, significant entrepreneurial vibe and spirit – it’s the DNA of the firm, lots of opportunities available to anyone interested in bettering themselves or the firm, very dynamic and responsive leadership team, promotions are very quick, work is always engaging and appropriately challenging, training programs are bespoke, personalised, and intimate, lots of opportunities to learn from one another, a huge focus on improvement, everyone’s voices are heard, lots of growth opportunities instilled by a firm wide growth mindset.”

  • “D&I efforts are led by a group of Partners worldwide to ensure compliance and enforcement throughout our system. Training happens regularly with external parties and equal access is a cornerstone of our employment policy.”
