Career Advancement Opportunities, In-House Training Programs and Team Building Initiatives Drive this Prestigious Recognition

SWC Technology Partners, a Midwest-based provider of IT solutions to midmarket organizations, ranks among the top 20 in Crain’s Chicago Business’ Best Places to Work 2013. This is SWC’s second 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 a third party human resources consulting firm, the survey asks respondents to describe their organization’s hiring practices, career development strategies, pay structure, benefits and more.

SWC’s ongoing employee development initiatives ranked high in employee satisfaction surveys this year. From career managers to mentors and hands-on learning labs training consultants on the latest technology, SWC is focused on constantly developing their employee’s technical skills. The company was also recognized for sponsoring social team building activities that keep staff motivated and happy, including corporate outings, weekly Happy Hours, company-sponsored community service projects and the SWC Olympics, a two-week competition featuring ping pong battles, Wii tournaments, dodgeball, and myriad other events.

“As a technology consulting firm our work is tremendously fulfilling but equally demanding. Every day our folks are on the front lines moving our clients forward. We respect each other but more importantly we trust in one another. In high pressure moments, it is that type of connection that makes all the difference in delivering a truly successful outcome,” said Bob Knott, SWC President. “Being recognized again by Crain’s as one of the best places to work in the city is a true reminder that our future as a firm is inherently tied to our commitment to each other. I continue to be humbled and honored to be a part of the SWC team.”

The Best Places to Work award is one of many workplace culture recognitions SWC has earned over the years. Since 1980, the firm has excelled at delivering technology solutions that match the needs of midmarket organizations. Recognizing business success is directly correlated with employee satisfaction, SWC strives to create a team-oriented culture that is supportive, fosters professional growth and is a great place to work.
