L.E.K. Consulting Europe

THE SCOOP

Getting to like L.E.K.

Founded in 1983, L.E.K. Consulting is a strategy consulting firm that offers five major capabilities to its clients: strategy, mergers and acquisitions, operations and organizational development, shareholder value management, and marketing and sales consulting.  Founded in London, the firm maintains 22 offices around the world.  Its clients are drawn from a wide variety of industries and include FTSE 100, Eurotop 300 and Fortune 500 members, major central government departments and smaller more entrepreneurial businesses. In Europe, the firm has strength in a number of major industries, including biopharma and life sciences, retail and consumer products, healthcare, industrial products and services, media and entertainment, aerospace and defence, transport, energy and private equity. 

 

Digging in

Underscoring all its services, says L.E.K., are its data-driven research capabilities.  "Clients depend on our best-in-class industry, analytical and strategic business insights to help them achieve tangible, high-impact results. The most valuable service that L.E.K. provides," the firm says, "is to gather, distill, and analyse vast amounts of data."  The firm's data-crunchers dig into the numbers to provide clients with clear, actionable recommendations using advanced research, benchmarking, modeling, analysis and strategy development methods. 

 

Offering a helping hand

L.E.K. takes its responsibilities-especially its social responsibilities-seriously.  As part of its environmental and social responsibility program, the firm works with charitable organizations on projects to improve the environment and local communities.  For example, the Social Mobility Foundation (SMF) in the UK aims to help 'A' Level students from less-privileged backgrounds to realise their potential by helping them enter university and progress on to a challenging career. L.E.K. participates in the SMF placement program, which matches students to internships within leading UK businesses.  L.E.K. London also works closely with a local secondary school to mentor pupils and give them the opportunity to work at L.E.K., either as a regular part-time employee, or on short temporary work placements. 

And, when it comes to going green, L.E.K. is more than just talk, working with clients on issues related to climate change, such as policy and regulation, green investments and developing low-carbon business strategies.  In January 2008, L.E.K. became carbon neutral, making it the first major consultancy to implement such a policy across its global operations. 

The firm's outreach doesn't stop there, either. In 2011, it began publishing a blog, written by current L.E.K. consultants. Called the L.E.K. Advisor (http://ask.lek.com), the blog serves as a window into both the company and the consulting profession for those who may be considering applying.
