Career Development Initiatives, Highly Competitive Benefit Programs and Focus on Work-Life Balance Fuel Prestigious Recognition

OAK BROOK, IL – (March 30, 2012) – 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 2012. Employee satisfaction survey results were a major factor in determining Crain’s final list, which is the latest in a recent succession of awards for the company. For more than 30 years SWC has delivered technology solutions that optimize productivity, strengthen relationships and drive profitability for clients such as the Chicago Botanical Gardens, Inland Real Estate Group and Affy Tapple.

Beyond providing its employees with strong financial incentives and tangible benefits, SWC fosters a rewarding and challenging team-oriented work environment. Moreover, its corporate culture promotes continuing education, team building, and ongoing employee development.

“Being recognized by Crain’s as one of the best places to work in the city is a tremendous honor,” said Bob Knott, SWC President. “I am incredibly proud of the team we have here and the commitment we have made to each other and our company. We are focused on some of the basics around here; teamwork and integrity. It’s basic stuff but in the end it can mean everything.”

SWC strongly promotes work-life balance, encouraging workers to efficiently complete work in a 40-hour work week, while offering flex time and alternate work schedules. And, throughout its history, the company has hosted annual employee meetings around such leisure activities as golf events, evenings at Dave & Buster’s and a yacht cruise on Lake Michigan. This year the company plans to host a summer event at Wrigley Field’s new Budweiser Pavilion.

“The folks here at SWC work very hard. We are committed to our client’s success and that means a determined effort but there is no reason that along the way we can’t have fun,” said Fran Peters, SWC’s Human Resources Manager “We continually strive to create a healthy, happy, engaging and fun atmosphere.”
