At Forum, we hire for the firm - not for a specific client. 'Forum-ites' genuinely care about their clients and delivering successful outcomes - as well as their community. We understand that to be great at what we do, we must balance work and fun. We live our lives with enthusiasm and pursue activities that make a difference both inside and outside of work.

 

A Great Place to Work

Forum offers the intellectual challenge and variety of consulting work without the demands of a large, globally focused firm. We are building a unique business that allows us to offer our associates the following:

  • Learn the business and become a leader - opportunity to help build our business
  • Get new skills - in a variety of clients and assignments in varied industries
  • Sleep soundly at night – our culture puts our clients’ needs first
  • Balance work and life – we work to create a healthy balance between the two
  • Collegial, cooperative (and fun!) professional environment - we believe in sharing our best practices with each other to benefit our clients and our colleagues

Our Benefits

Forum Solutions provides competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package including medical, best-in-class 401(k), generous paid time off, and monthly telecommunications stipend. Financial rewards are based on company success, contribution to clients and the firm's growth.

Forum sponsors pre-approved professional development opportunities to encourage employee’s professional interests and sponsors several social and professional development activities, including “Forum-Forums,” an annual team retreat called Forum Escape and other events.

Forum Principles

The backbone that governs Forum Solutions are our principles that serve as our North Star. We are selective in our hiring because we have high expectations in how we serve our clients, our colleagues and cultivate our firm culture.

  • Lead with Listening
    We do not dominate conversations or speak in a patronizing way. Organizational transformation doesn’t happen with a Powerpoint deck; it happens through building trust and quality relationships. Emotional intelligence is not optional, it is valued.
  • Go Lean, Go Forth
    We are lean, entrepreneurial and solution-oriented. We find creative solutions and need little hand-holding. We approach challenge with zest because that is how we grow.
  • Hungry for Feedback
    We give and receive feedback in the moment and see it as a gift. We trust that our co-workers have our best interests at heart. Reviews are never ”surprise attacks” of what we can do to improve.
  • Co-Creator of Culture
    We are building a company we truly want to brag about. We know our individual actions and attitudes can add or subtract. We choose to add (lots of jokes).  
  • Work-Life Groundedness
    We know if we’re not grounded in our personal lives, we cannot show up grounded for our clients. We respect our colleagues’ time and right to relax.
  • Down-to-Earth
    We are humble and do not overly complicate things. We treat others how we want to be treated and have a good time in the process. We genuinely care about our clients and put relationships first.
  • Systems Thinker
    We know siloed solutions can make incremental impact but a systems, holistic approach can move mountains. Integrating perspectives from different functions and industries makes solutions more sustainable. 
  • Driven for Excellence
    We are not satisfied until we have done our best – for our clients, our company, our community and ourselves. We do not create one-dimensional “shelfware” solutions for our clients and leave. We love running into our current and past clients in the grocery store because we are proud of our work and its longevity.
  • Learning Mindset
    We are intellectually curious and reframe every opportunity as a learning opportunity. Classifying anything as a “failure” is limited thinking.

 

 

If you have a business owner mindset and are driven to bring great ideas to fruition with brilliant results, send us your resume and a quick note about what inspired you to connect. If there’s a fit, we’ll set up a coffee date to learn more about each other. Let us unlock the possibilities together!
