About Us

Enjoy your last first day

In a society where job hopping is prevalent, the average employee at Monhan Partners has been with the company for 19 years. The name on the building is not only the family this company represents, it represents the families of all of our employees. Generations of different families have been employed at the company over its storied history. Employees are treated fairly and we expect our employees to value their families at home, too.

We celebrate together

The company hosts BBQ lunches and an extended lunch on the last day before summer holidays (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day), a potluck lunch before Thanksgiving, and a company luncheon in early December where bonuses are awarded are all part of our traditions. In addition, on any employee’s birthday – we celebrate together. Employees choose a dessert of their choice to be enjoyed by the entire company on their birthday, they receive a $25 gift certificate to an Arcola restaurant of their choice, and a $50 donation given in their name to the charity of their choice.

Arcola our home

Arcola has served as home to our company and we gladly donate to Arcola organizations. Annual contributions are made to the Arcola Foundation, Arcola Food Pantry, Douglas County CEO program, JFL (junior football league), Arcola Sports Boosters, Arcola Recreation, Arcola Firefighters Association, Arcola Rotary Club, and many more local organizations.

But Sending a donation is not all we do. Twice a month, employees leave work to go help unload trucks for the food pantry. The company hosts Douglas County CEO students for an annual tour/Q&A session, we recruit Arcola High School students for paid summer internships, we are active members of the Arcola Chamber, and individually we serve in various community leadership roles within several organizations. That leadership stems from a long history of service to Arcola from Thomas Monahan serving as mayor in the 1910-20’s, to Mary Monahan serving as the first female school board member at Arcola in the 1960’s, to Pat Monahan’s exemplary uncountable contributions to “Amazing Arcola” over the last half century.

We embrace our role as corporate citizens and are filled with Arcola pride.
