LaSalle Network Named 2018 FORTUNE Magazine ‘Best Small & Medium Companies to Work For’

National Staffing, Recruiting, Culture Firm Recognized for Exceptional Company Culture

CHICAGO (October 18, 2018) – LaSalle Network, a national staffing, recruiting and culture firm headquartered in Chicago was named to FORTUNE magazine’s 2018 list of “Best Small & Medium Companies to Work For.” LaSalle Network is the only Chicago-based staffing firm on the list. This is the company’s first time on the list. LaSalle Network is recognized in the medium-sized category.

More than 112,000 employee surveys were reviewed to compile this list. Ultimately, FORTUNE and Great Place to Work selected 50 small and 100 medium-sized companies based on survey scores. Fifty elements were considered while choosing the rankings of the top companies. These elements include:

-The extent to which employees trust leaders
-The respect with which people are treated
-The fairness of workplace decisions
-How much camaraderie there is among the team

Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

“It’s the people who work here that make LaSalle a great place to work,” said LaSalle Network Founder and CEO, Tom Gimbel. “We invest in our employees, we celebrate our success and we are accountable to one another.”

LaSalle Network has received more than 100 culture and revenue-based awards over the last 20 years. LaSalle has one of the highest retention and employee engagement rates in an industry known for its high turnover. Great Place to Work and FORTUNE also recognized LaSalle on its 2017 list of “Best Workplaces for Parents,” and its 2018 list of “Best Workplace in Chicago” and “Best Consulting and Professional Services Firms.”

“When it comes to revenue growth and innovation, the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces continue to outperform their peers making these companies more competitive and helping them secure their position in the marketplace,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “What these companies do differently than their peers is that they offer a great workplace for all employees, regardless of role or personal traits.”

Honorees will be featured on on October 18, 2018 and included in the November issue of FORTUNE magazine on stands October 22, 2018. For more information on LaSalle Network, contact Heather Youkhana at or 312-496-6562.
