As the economy continues on the road to recovery, many consulting firms are as busy as they’ve ever been. In some cases, utilization rates have climbed above 80 percent, others even topping 90 percent.
The fact that some markets have rebounded faster than expected comes as good news. However, given the necessary belt tightening and layoffs most firms experienced in 2009, such rates clearly are unsustainable. Many consultants are tired of being overworked and underappreciated; and this can lead to potentially catastrophic effects on a firm’s overall vitality.
Fast fact: According to a proprietary Consulting study, approximately half of 10,000 surveyed consultants plan to leave their current consulting firm by the end of 2013. And most of them plan to leave the consulting profession altogether.
Unfortunately, as alarming as this news is, it’s not entirely surprising. You can’t blame consultants for being fed up with having their success rewarded with even more work and longer hours. You can however find a better solution for improving their work/life balance — and effectively your firm’s overall sustainability.
