Crain’s Recognizes SWC as a 2015 Best Place to Work

April 6, 2015   //   News

SWC Technology Partners, a Chicagoland provider of IT solutions to midmarket organizations, has been named one of Crain’s Chicago Business’ Best Places to Work in 2015. This is SWC’s fourth consecutive appearance on the Best Places to Work list, which recognizes Chicagoland firms that offer an array of motivating perks and incentives to attract and retain top talent.

The result of employee satisfaction surveys are the major determining factor for inclusion on Crain’s Best Places to Work list. Conducted by Buck Consultants, a global human resources consulting firm, the survey asked respondents about benefits, professional development, work-life balance, office culture, relationships with management and co-workers and more.

“Our ability to deliver the technology solutions that help our clients succeed is dependent on the very talented individuals that make up SWC,” said Bob Knott, President of SWC Technology Partners. “I am incredibly proud of the team we have here and the commitment we have made to each other and our company.”

SWC employees ranked professional development initiatives high on this year’s satisfaction survey. SWC offers a formal mentorship program, hands-on training where employees break and fix technologies, “lunch and learn” sessions, online courses and workshops to ensure employees’ professional skills are evolving with the rapid changes in technology. Employees also noted that they enjoyed working on cutting-edge technology solutions for a diverse clientele of midmarket organizations.

“Most candidates choose to accept an offer with us based on our ability to help them develop their talent and grow their career,” says Fran Peters, PHP, SWC’s Human Resources Manager.

As a regional consulting firm, the vast majority of SWC’s engagements are close to home, unlike many IT consulting companies that require extensive travel or expect employees to be on the grid 24×7. This has resulted in an incredibly low turnover rate and an average staff tenure of six years. SWC also offers employees monthly incentives for performance reaching or exceeding work utilization goals that significantly augment income.

For nearly 35 years, SWC has excelled at delivering technology solutions that match the needs of midmarket organizations. The Best Places to Work award is a testament to SWC’s employees who have helped develop programs and initiatives that foster professional growth and a team-oriented culture that places a premium on happiness.
