LaSalle Network Celebrates 17 Years

Chicago, IL., August 19, 2015 – LaSalle Network, a recruiting and staffing firm headquartered in Chicago, celebrates 17 years in business. 

LaSalle Network Founder and CEO, Tom Gimbel, started LaSalle Network back in 1998.  He had two employees, a small office, and an idea. He saw an opportunity in the staffing industry in Chicago for a niche accounting and finance firm, and the company took off from there. Fast forward to present day, and LaSalle Network now specializes in accounting and finance, technology, administrative, call center, human resources, marketing and executive search.

In this year alone, LaSalle Network has won more than 10 culture and revenue-based awards, including: “Inc. 500/5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America,” Crain’s Chicago Business’ “Best Places to Work,” Chicago Tribune’s “Top 100 Workplaces,” Staffing Industry Analysts’ “Best Staffing Firms to Work For” and “Fastest Growing Staffing Firms,” overall winner for “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in Chicago,” Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC) and The Daily Herald Business Ledger’s “Best Places to Work in Illinois,” and was the only company in Illinois and one of six in the nation to win American Psychological Association’s “Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards.”

In its 17th year, LaSalle Network expanded its search practice to conduct national searches, opened an office in San Francisco, promoted 20 of its employees, hired 70 people, expanded its corporate headquarters, and has plans to further expand its headquarters over the next few months.     

“LaSalle Network is not just the best staffing firm to work for in Chicago and one of the best in the country, it’s also the best one to lead,” said Gimbel. “I am lucky I get to call so many of our staff friends, and I want employees to know how much they are appreciated. Growing in revenue every year for 17 years is no easy feat, and it could not have been done without their dedication and hard work.” 

Since the company’s inception, LaSalle Network has been recognized with more than 45 culture and revenue-based awards, including: “Inc. 500/5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America” for the past nine years, Staffing Industry Analysts’ “Best Staffing Firms to Work For” (2011-2015) and its “Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms” list (2012-2015), HRMAC and Daily Herald Business Ledger’s “Best Places to Work in Illinois” (2012-2015), Crain’s Chicago Business’ “Best Places to Work” (2014-2015), “101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work for” in Chicago (2012-2015), winning overall “Best of the Best” in 2015, Chicago Tribune’s “Top 100 Workplaces” (2014), CareerBuilder and Inavero’s “Best of Staffing” (2014-2015), and ICIC’s “Inner City 100” (2011 & 2013).
