It goes without saying that people are any consulting firm’s most important asset. Meet the top consulting firms to work for in the Middle East.

Recruiting the brightest talent and keeping them onboard is instrumental for the success of every consulting firm in the Middle East, and as a result, consultancies of all sizes in strive to be a top workplace for their consultants and staff.

So what makes firms a best workplace?
