Flexco Named one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest

July 27, 2009

Flexco is proud to announce that it has been selected again as one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. Flexco received recognition for this same honor in 2008.

“We are very excited Flexco has been selected for a second year as one of Chicago's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” said Krista Howland, Flexco Human Resources Manager - North America. “Achieving this honor again 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, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, small business, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.

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

“We are honored to recognize the efforts of this year’s 101 'Best and Brightest' companies. These companies have created impressive organizational value and business results through their policies and Best Practices in human resource management. This award has become a powerful recruitment tool in the drive to attract and retain exceptional employees,” said Jennifer Kluge, National Association for Business Resources president.
