At Walker Sands, people like coming to work each day. That’s not accidental. We have worked to create a vibrant and rewarding workplace that allows our employees to grow personally and professionally.
We value hard work.
Before we can do right by our clients, we have to do right by our employees. We recognize our employees’ hard work by providing a straightforward career path with opportunities for advancement and prioritize promoting from within the agency. From our robust company mentoring program to industry conference opportunities, knowledge and professional development are hard-wired into our agency culture.
We have fun.
It’s not all about the work. Our culture and office environment offer plenty of opportunities for fun and games. We regularly host after-work happy hours and social events, and our team has become a formidable force on the recreational kickball circuit. Movies in the park more your speed? We do them, too. And our employees rave about the annual Chicago Cubs outing. At Walker Sands, we work hard to promote a healthy work-life balance and ensure that we provide opportunities both inside and outside of the office to have some fun with their coworkers.
We offer great benefits.
In addition to competitive salaries, we offer a variety of benefits to our employees, including an employer-matched 401k program as well as high-quality health, dental and vision insurance coverage. To make life a little easier, we reimburse public transportation expenses and offer gym membership reimbursement as part of our “Get Fit” program. Additional benefits are provided to senior employees and our flexible office environment creates opportunities for everyone to occasionally work from home.
We give back.
Each year, Walker Sands One Step Forward tackles several projects for local charitable causes. We also collaborate on a number of charitable activities outside of the office. Whether it’s making dinner for the Ronald McDonald House, attending a rooftop Cubs’ event that benefits the Little Giraffe Foundation or helping build a home with Habitat for Humanity, we’re happy to do our part to give back to the local community.
