For Second Consecutive Year, Local Staffing and Recruiting Firm Recognized as Exceptional Employer
Chicago, IL, November 13, 2015 – LaSalle Network, a staffing and recruiting firm headquartered in Chicago, announced its recognition today by the Chicago Tribune as one of Chicago’s Top 100 Workplaces for the second year in a row.
The Chicago Tribune Top Workplace award recognizes exceptional employers in the Chicagoland area. Recipients were selected based on the result of an anonymous employee assessment. The survey, conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement, measured three critical elements of the workplace: engagement, organizational health and satisfaction.
Employers were divided into small, medium, and large-sized company categories. LaSalle Network was ranked among the small-sized companies in the area.
“Being named a winner of the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplace Award two years in a row is a huge honor,” said Tom Gimbel, Founder and CEO of LaSalle Network. “LaSalle’s culture wouldn’t be what it is today without the contributions of every single employee. I’m very proud of the dynamic we’ve created and look forward to expanding our culture as we grow.”
In an industry known to have high turnover, LaSalle Network, has created numerous strategies and processes that lead to increased employee engagement and low turnover. Some of these include: work anniversary celebrations (called rebirthdays), where the entire office comes together to decorate and blow up balloons for the respective employee, company-wide incentive trips, weekly meetings where the entire company comes together to collaborate on strategies to move the business forward.
Winners were recognized and rankings announced at the awards ceremony Thursday, November 12th at the Fairmont Hotel at Millennium Park. The winners are also profiled in a special issue of the Chicago Tribune on Friday, November 13th, and the companies will also be online.
