Perks and Programs

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

  • On-Demand Virtual Learning: All Valore Partners, staff have access to unlimited, 24/7 virtual education opportunities. They are welcome, encouraged and often rewarded for the various self-study programs that they complete. Examples include: Pluralsight, MSDN Accounts, Xamarin U etc.
  • Virtual Healthcare: All employees have access to MeMD: personalized virtual healthcare. Through this portal, staff are able to chat directly with professional healthcare or therapy provided by video, phone, or app here in Arizona. With MeMD, you can consult a therapist, nurse practitioner or doctor online and receive personalized treatment without the added expense of going to a walk in clinic or the wait to see their family doctor.
  • Gym Membership: Employees have unlimited access to an on-site gym and a number of growing fitness classes for a low, one-time fee. If they prefer a gym closer to home, they are able to submit their membership costs via their monthly expenses and will have it reimbursed up to a set amount.
  • Lunch & Learns / Tech Talks: The tech world moves fast and the best Consultants & Companies keep up. We offer regular Lunch & Learns / Tech Talks on exciting emerging technologies and/or new ways of utilizing the best of current technology.
  • Internal Support Network: Valore Partners prides itself on our collaborative environment; two heads are better than one right? We use an internal platform called Yammer which facilities cross-collaboration between our Consultants from various disciplines and teams in an on-going, real-time basis.
  • Regular Team Building Events: In a Consulting firm where our employees are working on-site with various clients scattered across the valley, we rarely have the whole company at the Head Office at one time. With this in mind, we make it a priority to organize company wide events and get-togethers so that the whole company is able to interact on a regular basis. Some of these events have included happy-hours, sushi making demonstration (and eating!), bowling nights & volunteer charity work.
  • Employee Awards & Appreciation: Without our amazing, intelligent and dedicated employees, we wouldn't be the company we are today; we give credit where credit is due! We hold biannual and annual awards nights, where various awards and prizes are presented. This includes Top Consultant Award which is typically a paid vacation to places like Bahamas, Disney, Jackson Hole etc. Outside of the formal events, we also celebrate with milestone anniversary celebrations and real-time peer appreciation via an app called Recognize.
  • Referral Program: We know that good people, know good people. We offer a generously funded internal referral program for any employee who successfully refers us a candidate that we hire!
  • Meetings with Ownership: Valore Partners is proud to be a local, mid-size firm. We're large enough to work on exciting projects, but small enough that you'll get to know each of your peers, management and the partners of the firm personally. You'll chat with management and the owners about creating a personalized employment experience on a quarterly basis, because career goals for everyone are unique and constantly evolving. 
  • Flexible Work Schedules: We're a family oriented firm and take work-life balance very seriously. Where possible, Consultants are able to work a flexible schedule according to what works best for them. Whether that means working a split day to accommodate a mid-day appointment, shorter weeks and longer days to get an extra day off for a special event, working early/late and leaving early/late to help with children's school drop off schedules--whenever possible, we'll accommodate.
