The St. Louis Business Journal recently named Perficient a Best Place to Work. A team from our global headquarters celebrated the honor during an awards ceremony the publication hosted to spotlight winners of the annual program.
“The recognition is a testament that our employees are truly excited about working at Perficient,” said Jason Hudnall, general manager, St. Louis. “We are extremely honored.”
During the St. Louis Business Journal’s ceremony, more than 750 attendees – a record number – cheered each other on for going above and beyond for their employees. Perficient landed in the “Large Finalists: 100-249 local employees” category, and ceremony speakers cited our high degree of role autonomy, significant work-life balance benefits, awards for excellence, opportunities to connect with colleagues during fun office festivities and outings, and more.
Back at our St. Louis office, colleagues were treated to 10 dozen donuts. In all the celebrations, the Best Place to Work award brought to mind all the aspects of working at Perficient that our colleagues hold dear.
Teammates of all tenures – from recent hires to veterans – shared their experiences:
Why Perficient is a Best Place to Work
All-Time Favorite Employer

Perficient understands the importance and the value in building a strong, positive culture. Perficient truly cares about its people, and the communities they operate in.

Teammates Help Each Other Excel in Work and Life
“Perficient provides many opportunities for our employees to get involved in leadership projects outside of their daily job functions. For instance, many of our team members spend time giving back and volunteering in the community. Other colleagues help coordinate amazing social events that help build culture and foster networking. Others are focused on growing their skills by lead trainings and mentoring their peers through career counseling. It’s all about building relationships and making an impact in each other’s lives. Perficient provides our employees a great work-life balance where everyone is treated with respect and each person has a voice to bring forward new ideas. Our consultants take pride in providing value for our clients delivering projects not only on time and on budget but also with a focus on purpose and innovation.”
-Jason Hudnall, general manager, three years with Perficient
Looking Forward to the Future
“The people, our clients, our growth, opportunities to succeed, and the engagement of senior leadership has made the past seven and a half years of my career with Perficient unbelievable. Perficient is the absolute best place to work, and I am looking extremely forward to the next seven-plus years.”
– Ellie Huss, director, seven years with Perficient
