Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Owning a piece of the company

As the antithesis of a “churn and burn” consultancy, we sprang from a desire to create a place where people could build long-term careers and participate in the equity they help build.

To ensure that we all share in our combined success, every employee participates in our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Our ESOP is designed to reward loyalty, professional growth and company performance.

You don't need to purchase shares or invest your own money as long as you remain employed at the firm you'll receive a share allocation each year. And as we continue to successfully execute on our strategy year over year, the value of every share increases.

West Monroe Partners was named 2017 Illinois ESOP Company of the Year by the Illinois Chapter of the ESOP Association, celebrating our commitment to employee ownership and our people-first culture. 

Being an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) is a unique and important part of West Monroe. We all share in our collaborative success and as an employee-owned firm, each of us can directly impact West Monroe’s success.

The bottom line.

Individual contribution powers our collective results, and we all share financially in the success.
