Job Description

LCO Practice, Associate

Who we are

As a global consulting partnership in more than 40 countries, our people make us who we are. We’re individuals with different passions and strengths who take as much joy in the work we do as from those we work with. Over the years we’ve fostered a culture in which we are united by shared values—passion, solidarity, generosity, curiosity, and boldness—and these come alive in the work we do and how we do it.

Together, we know our people are our difference—for our clients, our colleagues, and our communities. That’s why we take pride in being individual and inclusive and create a place where everyone can bring their full self to work.

The Leadership, Change and Organization (LCO) Practice knows what drives change, how to make it happen, and how to make it last. We know it is essential to translate strategy into the right combination of organizational strength, agility, and leanness and to align all elements of the operating model. We know it is crucial to engage people to make it all work.  From people and culture to processes, technology, and structure, our experts provide organization and transformation tools and knowledge to produce immediate impact and lasting results.
