Explore Consulting Named One of the Best Companies to Work For by Seattle Met Magazine

BELLEVUE, WA – May 16, 2011 – Explore Consulting, a professional services company that provides innovative technology solutions for managing business data and a cost-effective approach to completely outsourced IT in the Cloud, was listed in the Top 3 on this year’s list of the “Best Places to Work” in the Greater Seattle region by Seattle Met Magazine and the Best Companies Group. Other companies on the list included Expedia, Zillow and Groundspeak.

While still important, the article acknowledges that many job-seekers today are looking beyond salary, location and advancement opportunities when determining if a company is right for them. They also look at how their life outside the office will be affected once joining a specific team. “We work hard and we play harder,” said Jones. “Explore has consistently strived to foster a positive culture and work environment that values our people and their contributions. We are thrilled to be honored by Seattle Met magazine as a great place to work.”

In addition to a Nerf gun target range for stress relief, Explore’s Bellevue headquarters has an onsite exercise facility with showers, lactation facilities, tuition reimbursement and twice annual company parties where multiple performance awards are distributed with prizes that include free parking, Seahawks tickets, plasmas and ipads. Benefits include a 401(k); profit sharing, quarterly bonuses, employer subsidized health and parking/transportation benefits, and flexible work schedules.
