LaSalle Network Named “Best Staffing Firm to Work For” in Illinois

Staffing Industry Analysts Announce LaSalle Network as a Top Staffing Company

CHICAGO, IL., March 6, 2013 – For the third year in a row, LaSalle Network is the only staffing firm in Illinois to be named a Best Staffing Firm to Work For by Staffing Industry Analysts.

“To make the list three consecutive years, and be the only Illinois-based firm honored, is an incredible feeling,” said Tom Gimbel, Founder and CEO. “At LaSalle, employee engagement and retention are a constant focus. We want our employees to be happy, and truly enjoy coming to work. This award is the highest compliment our employees can give.”

Since inception, Gimbel has made employee moral his focus. He implemented a team-based staffing structure, which rewards individual employees for their success, as well as the success of their team. He also created a variety of unique recognition tools to reward employees for their hard work.

A few traditions include, Re-birthdays, a celebration of each employee’s hire date, LaLympics, an annual company-wide Olympic Games, complete with sand volleyball, potato sack races and dizzy bat, and LaSallemas, an annual company party on the date of LaSalle’s inception. Last year, Gimbel flew the entire staff to Las Vegas for an all-expense paid weekend.

But it’s not just the celebrations and events that employees value.

“I’ve worked at other staffing firms, and nothing compares to the atmosphere at LaSalle,” said Senior Project Manager, Allison Penning. “People truly care about each other on a personal and professional level, and we all want what’s in the best interest of the company.”

With 1,000 percent growth since 2001, and over a dozen accolades in the past two years, it’s obvious these home-grown recognition tools and personal touch really make an impact.
