Life at Northwoods

Northwoods bear


At Northwoods, our people are the core of our culture. We are thoughtful about who we hire, and we spend a lot of time developing meaningful relationships among coworkers.

We care deeply about our work and about each other. Our common drive and shared values are invigorating. We love to come to work each and every day (seriously!). Hear from real Northwoodians in this video about why they love working here!

Inside Our Den

Our work environment is anything but “corporate.” We dress casually and enjoy each other’s company. We treat one another like family, which means that along with working hard together, we also eat, laugh, and play together. Whether it is hanging out on our patio eating lunch, playing a competitive game of basketball, or having a drink in our bar (nicknamed the Grizzly), we purposefully invest time in getting to know each other!

Core Values




We crave knowledge.


We work together.




We find solutions.


We protect Northwoods.

Northwoods In The Community

Giving Back

Since Northwoods is all about human services, it probably won’t surprise you that we encourage a strong culture of helping others. We offer employees company time to volunteer in efforts together and for causes near and dear to their hearts.

‚ÄčOur employee-driven Northwoods Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is another important way we give back to people in need in the communities in which our employees work and live.

Benefits that Benefit You

Northwoods believes benefits should make a difference in your life.

Time off

Time Off

Northwoods recognizes that it’s not always possible to control how much time you might need to take off in a given year. That’s why we do not have a traditional PTO plan. Team members have flexibility to take the time they need to have new experiences, make memories, or recoup from the flu. It’s all about communication and being accountable for your work.  

Career development

Career Development

We have a purposefully flat organizational structure (as well as low turnover). We still want to provide opportunities for Northwoodians to grow, develop, and be recognized. Through our “Belt” program, you can earn rewards such as bonuses and sabbaticals for learning, knowledge sharing, and making other valuable contributions to Northwoods.

Career development


Similar to our time off policy we want to offer team members the flexibility to conduct work in a way that best works for them and for their team. We offer in-office, hybrid and even fully remote work location options. We are a collaborative organization no matter where you are located or how you need to work.

Traditional Benefits

While traditional benefits may not be exciting, they make a big difference in the lives of our team.



The Northwoods’ Wellness Program offers a variety of incentives to make feeling healthy fun and easy on your wallet! Also, join your coworkers in our on-site gym for a quick workout before work, at lunch, or anytime.
