Local Staffing Firm Recognized for the First Time as Best Place to Work in Chicago
April 10, 2014 (Newswire.com) - LaSalle Network, Chicago's premier provider of professional staffing and recruiting services, announced today that it was named to Crain's Chicago Business' 2014 list of "Best Places to Work in Chicago," securing third place in the category for Generation X, and fifth place for that of Employee Engagement. This is LaSalle Network's first time receiving this award.
Thousands of companies in the Chicagoland area applied, and 20 were selected. Eligible companies needed to have at least 50 full-time employees in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will County as of September 30, 2013. Recipients were selected based on the results of two surveys. The first, detailing hiring practices, benefits, and pay, and the second, an anonymous survey completed by the company's employees.
"It's incredible to be recognized on this list," said President & CEO, Tom Gimbel. "Not only are these great companies to work for, but they are some of the most successful organizations in the Chicagoland area… and that's no coincidence. We are a great company because we hire great people. At the end of the day, I want to ensure my staff is successful and that they leave work happy and excited to come back the next day."
"After 14 years, I still love coming to work every day", says Jayme Schrieffer, Manager of Major Accounts at LaSalle Network. "Not only has Tom created a great environment for us to work in with annual celebrations on our hire date, and trips across the country, but I love the people I work with. I've never worked with such a hard working group of people, and I'm proud to work here."
Winners were profiled Monday, April 7, 2014 in Crain's Chicago Business.
