Each year the St. Louis Business Journal holds the esteemed Best Places to Work Award. For 2019, Concero was selected as the winner in the small business category of this esteemed and competitive designation.
“We’re appreciative of this recognition,” says Jay Murchison, president and senior managing partner. “Our people are driven, compassionate and fun. We encourage them to be CEOs of their own careers, but we’re proud to provide stability and support of being a part of a bigger team.”
In previous years, Concero was a finalist for the award, so being selected as the winner meant a great deal to the entire team. Over 250 nominations were submitted for the St. Louis Business Journal’s Best Places to Work Awards.
One of Concero’s main tenets is creating authentic and memorable connections. In October 2018, Concero moved to a new, larger office that was designed facilitate easier conversations, especially in regards to the interview process. Complete with comfortable interview spaces, Kaldi’s coffee on tap and an endless array of snacks, the new office is inviting and bright.
“We want both our employees, our consultants and our clients to feel the positive energy when they come to Concero,” explains Murchison. Read more about Top 10 Reasons Why Concero Makes Interviewing Fun and to see photos of the office.
Concero offers contract, contract-to-hire and direct-hire placement services to organizations looking for technical and industrial/engineering professionals — from entry level to the c-suite — in the greater St. Louis region.

The process included an in-depth questionnaire, as well as evaluating and scoring of a variety of metrics, including: team effectiveness, retention, employee alignment with company goals, individual needs, team dynamics, and trust in leadership, among others.
The Business Journal announced the winners of each category at an awards breakfast on Thursday, March 7 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. More information can be found on The St. Louis Business Journal website.
