Despite the global health pandemic and financial crisis, LaSalle Network hired more than 90 employees in the last year, onboarding new employees during the pandemic, and didn’t lay off a single recruiter. LaSalle Network also promoted 40 percent of employees over the last year, with 14 percent promoted within management.
“While we faced many unexpected challenges, we stood by our people and didn’t lay off a single recruiter,” said Tom Gimbel, founder and CEO of LaSalle Network. “When so many recruiting firms were laying employees off, we chose to keep ours employed. Our team has stayed fully staffed and ready to support our clients.”
Giving back to the community has always been a top priority, which is why beyond year-round giveback initiatives, on the company’s anniversary, all LaSalle Network employees spent the day volunteering. This was separate from the Volunteer Time Off employees normally get throughout the year. Everyone in the company used the day to give back, either virtually or in-person, contributing over 1,000 hours of community service in one day. The organizations that benefited included, Aspire Chicago, Special Olympics, The Kenneth Young Center, The Center for Enriched Living, Cristo Rey and Pitch in For the Parks.
LaSalle Network was recognized with more than 15 awards in the last year, including Crain’s Chicago Business’ “Best Places to Work” for the sixth year and Crain's Chicago Business' “Largest Privately Held Companies” list,” Fortune magazine’s “Best Workplaces in Chicago” for the third consecutive year and its “Best Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services” list, ranked No. 4 on The Daily Herald Business Ledger’s list of “Best Places to Work in Illinois,” honored for the ninth consecutive year, and named the winner of the Best & Brightest Companies to Work For in Chicago's Elite “Training & Development” award. LaSalle Network’s training program was also recognized on Training Magazine’s “Training Top 125” list of top training programs in the world for its fourth year.
LaSalle Network conducted more than 2,000 hours of training for employees across all levels to better service hiring companies and job seekers.
