When it comes to places to work, people who have a choice often pay attention to what others are saying, which is one reason (need we have more?) that the National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For program is such a valuable tool in today’s quest for employees who will contribute to high levels of satisfaction.
It’s a fact in today’s economy, where often the scarcest resource is the people needed to take a business to the next level, that competition for dedicated team players remains high.
And when companies like the winners in Atlanta and Chicago are able to show through the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition that they’re the type of workplace others would enjoy, that can start a chain reaction. In other words, “pick me!”
In Atlanta and Chicago, two of several cities across America where the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For has a growing presence, this year’s competition brought out the very best (as you might expect).
It’s worth pointing out that even among the high caliber of workplaces that made it to our list (the Atlanta winners can be seen HERE, and Chicago’s “Best and Brightest” can be seen HERE), we have a group of “Elite” winners who shone even a little brighter than those who were deserving of recognition by the judges.
