Perks and Programs

We asked SingleStone to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Gratitude Gifts: Our team works really, really hard and we believe it's important to acknowledge and celebrate their hard work, achievements and dedication to our firm. In mid-May our CEO presented each Team Lead with a "Gratitude Gift." Team Leads were given a budget ($100 x # of employees on their team) and asked to celebrate, recognize and thank their team for all of their hard work this year. Teams voted on how to spend their gifts; here's a few examples of what they did: donated to a non-profit, received Amazon gift cards, received $100 in cash, spent a day with their team on the golf course and even rented a pontoon boat for the afternoon.
  • Leader Lunches: We launched a series of “Leader Lunches” to give our team more regular exposure, and connection to, leaders across our firm. As consultants, we're spread across a number of projects, and client sites, and don't interact with the broader firm on a daily basis. Leader lunches are an easy way for teams, and our leaders, to connect more frequently. Every month each leader meets with a group of consultants (usually about 6-7 people) and hosts a casual discussion that allows individuals to learn more about each other and gives our consultants an opportunity to learn more about our leaders, and their role at SingleStone.
  • Team Appreciation Days: Account Managers and Team Leads are encouraged to host social and team building events with their teams. Teams have done everything from Escape Rooms to Happy Hours to Habitat for Humanity. These outings are a great opportunity for teams to take a break from project work, connect with their peers on a more personal level and (most importantly) to let their hair down and have some FUN!
  • Culture Collaborations: We kicked off 2016 with a series of "Culture Collaborations." where we invited the team to participate in 60-minute sessions and asked them questions/engaged in conversations about our culture. We discussed what was great about our culture (what we want to do more of) and things about our culture that may be holding us back (things we should eliminate or change.) These collaborations were open, honest and an invitation to share, brainstorm and suggest ways that we can be better. We've already incorporated much of the team's feedback and are excited for continued progress into next year!
  • Client Spotlights: In each quarterly All Hands Meeting we invite project teams to present a Client Spotlight. These spotlights are opportunities for our teams to share their learnings, and their accomplishments, with the broader firm. It's also an opportunity for our team to connect better to the work we're doing outside of their current project.

How to Get Hired

We asked SingleStone for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Here at SingleStone, we hire for attitude, aptitude and skills - in that order. The only deal-breaker is values alignment. Candidates must have personal values that align with our firm's core values - always learn, pursue excellence and serve passionately. If candidates aren't committed to these values, then SingleStone isn't the right place for them. We also seek talent that is obsessed with learning new things and comfortable operating in the “grey space.” We look for raw talent, natural ability AND experience delivering results. Candidates must be passionate about their craft and committed to delivering high quality work. They should be naturally curious and insanely driven to serve others. So driven to serve that they put the needs of our clients, and our team, before their own. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Educate yourself before reaching out to our Recruiting Team. Visit our website, read our blog and get familiar with our people! Do your homework and be prepared to ask questions about the company. Show up at events where you know SingleStone will be present. Be bold, introduce yourself and explain why you think you'd be a good fit for our team. Ask to connect with us on LinkedIn and reach out to people that you know who have worked with us. Follow our company page - learn more about the work we do, the people we want to hire and the culture we've created.    

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We're always looking for great talent to join our growing team but our primary growth areas will likely be in UX/Design, Technology and Account Management.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Visit our Website, read our blog and get familiar with our people! Apply to a role that's interesting to you. We have an excellent, user friendly interface to connect candidates to our open roles. Our consultants provide relevant and interesting information on our blog to help individuals, and potential hires, gain a better understanding of what we do.
