For Our Business


BrownFlynn’s success and growth is dependent on its most valuable asset—our employees. At the end of 2012, the BrownFlynn team comprised 12 full-time employees and two adjunct consultants. We are planning for growth and look forward to welcoming additional team members during 2013.

We are proud of our Firm and our staff’s personal achievements. We are constantly seeking to improve our internal processes and consulting capabilities in support of our goals. At our annual employee retreat in October 2012, we undertook a review of key internal performance objectives and measures of success. We reviewed and enhanced the measures of performance and commenced development of a talent strategy that will help frame our consulting resources approach—a more efficient and effective service delivery “pyramid” model. We are focusing on our capacity to better predict and proactively respond to client demands and routines to manage cyclicality in our annual workload.

Our Firm’s Performance Dashboard highlights these annual People objectives and performance measures. The Dashboard consists of overall goals that every team member must contribute to achieving. These goals are organized into overarching themes that help us keep them top of mind every day. Highlights of ‘People’ goals we achieved in 2012 were:

  • Improved employee well-being.
  • Ongoing monitoring of healthcare options and alternative provider plans with regard to both employer and employee benefits and costs.
  • Alignment of performance reviews with personal career development goals and Firm-wide goals. Specific development goals include:
    • Increased employee training and public speaking opportunities.
    • Consistently and creatively brought the “I / We are BrownFlynn” culture to life.
    • Reinforced service mentality in internal and external facing interactions.
