Kirkland, WA - Xtreme Consulting Group, Inc.was named as one of the finalists for Washington's Best Workplaces by the Puget Sound Business Journal. The program was launched in 2007 to identify and recognize best practices in the hiring and retention of great people. This year, after an extensive and rigorous process, which included more than300 nominees and the completion of surveys by nominee-company employees across the state, workplaces in four different categories have been identified as Washington's best, based on their various employee benefit offerings, leadership, culture and work/life balance philosophies. In total, 85 companies have made the grade as finalists.
Xtreme Consulting Group, Inc. is a leading provider of Business Consulting, IT Consulting and Staffing Services. The company’s culture is built on a “people first” principle that the very best client services are only achieved by ensuring the proper support, development, and satisfaction of their employees. This unique leadership style has allowed Xtreme to achieve remarkable growth since its founding in 2005; earning a place on the Inc. 500/5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies for four consecutive years.
“Work force development has never been more important – or more difficult – than it is in today’s global economy,” said Gordon Prouty, publisher of the Business Journal. “We believe the Business Journal has an important role to play in drawing attention to innovations and excellence in the management of our region’s No. 1 resource: its people.”
The finalists will be celebrated at a one-of-a-kind awards event at Safeco Field on Aug. 9. Honorees and the public alike are invited to come cheer for the workplace accomplishments of these companies from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The celebration will include ballpark food and drink, walking the bases, speed pitching, and an awards presentation. The company with the greatest number of employees present will win a suite at a future Seattle Mariners game.
