Named “Small Employer of the Year” in 2017 by the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce, for more than 27 years Tunheim has built a reputation as a consultancy that helps clients navigate complex change. Designed around the fundamental belief that successful organizations take responsibility for being understood, we help our clients rethink how they work and how they communicate to effectively engage with their most important stakeholders.
We tackle our clients’ toughest challenges with a collective approach – a belief that no one individual is as good as the company’s “collective best.” We are currently seeking a dynamic, flexible individual to join our team as a full-time Consultant.
Our collaborative approach extends throughout our organization. From our open office design to lunch-time gab sessions to late afternoon co-working pods, our team enjoys being together and celebrates the fresh thinking that colleagues can bring to solving the challenge of the day.
