An Insider's view of Premier International

What are some social events your company does?

It’s not just all work here, we know how to have fun too! We have company-wide parties to celebrate our achievements, participate in annual volunteer events, host fantasy football and sports leagues. We've even had Premier office kittens in the past!


Manager of Sales Operations

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem that we’re tackling right now is helping a large healthcare organization undergo a complex data transformation to Workday for multiple products. Often times, data can be complex and require deep analysis to understand how to clean and transform legacy system data into what we would need within a target system like Workday.


Senior Consultant

How does the company support your career growth?

Premier supports my career growth by encouraging me to take on more responsibilities as I gain experience in my role. They do this by allowing me the autonomy to step out of my comfort zone and potentially make mistakes but simultaneously providing a support network of managers and senior staff who provide continuous mentorship and feedback.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We hold regular “speak freely” meetings and encourage open dialogue about what's working and what’s not. My goal as a leader is to always be accessible and intentional in bringing our people in on the process. We’re a culture first organization so knowing how we can serve our people better is what enables our team to better serve our clients.



What’s the vibe like in the office?

Even though we've been around for over 35 years, we've still got that startup mentality! The vibe is work hard, play hard and we genuinely like hanging out with each other. You can definitely feel a spirit of camaraderie here.
