Flexco Named One of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest

December 18, 2008

Flexco is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.

“We are very excited to hear that Flexco has been selected as one of Chicago's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” said Krista Howland, Flexco Human Resources Manager - North America. “Being selected has only confirmed our hopes that our employees know that they are the most important asset for our company's success. We will continue to strive to make sure our company keeps a well rounded focus on keeping our employees first.”

The awards were established to honor companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset. Companies are evaluated in categories such as Communication, Compensation and Benefits, Employee Education and Development, Recognition and Retention, and Employee Engagement and Commitment.

The Association's market research firm examines each company application statistically for both quantitative and qualitative data and surveys random employees within the company. That data is then submitted to a volunteer panel of judges to examine. All applications are scored on a point system. Those receiving the highest points are selected as the 101 Best and Brightest winners.

In all categories, the panels of judges are looking for a unique thought process with top support from senior management and policy makers. They are looking for above average programs, services and solutions for employees. Also, the judges are looking for adaptation to various new factors in the marketplace.

The awards were established to honor those companies in each market that recognize employees as their greatest asset. These are companies that work with imagination and conviction to create organizational value and business results through their policies and Best Practices in human resource management. The selection, recognition and awarding of the "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" allows businesses to showcase these policies and Best Practices, and demonstrate why each of them is an ideal place for employees to work.
