Red Line

Friendly, professional, responsive, honest, fair, open . . . those are words used to describe the Boutin Jones culture. What’s the best way to judge whether those words are real values in our workplace? Notice how infrequently employees leave the firm. You won’t find a lower attrition rate in our region. We’ve created a comfortable, stable, challenging and professionally rewarding environment with a group of staff members we believe are outstanding.

The admiration seems to be mutual. We’ve been nominated—by our employees—as a Best Place to Work ten out of the last twelve years. That means at least 75% of our workforce took the time to fill out surveys letting the Sacramento Business Journal know they like working at Boutin Jones. We do our best to return the compliment each and every day.
