Oak Brook, IL | August 10, 2009 – SWC Technology Partners, a leading provider of IT solutions to small and medium-sized Chicago area organizations, has been named one of “Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” an honor that recognizes organizations with outstanding programs, services and solutions for employees that have adapted well to various new factors in the marketplace.

SWC and other winners will be recognized by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) at the annual “Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” awards luncheon on August 10, 2009 at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook.

The selection of the 2009 winners is the result of an independent research firm that evaluates each company’s entry in the following categories: communication, community intiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection and work-life balance.

“We are honored to recognize the efforts of this year’s 101 ‘Best and Brightest’ companies. These companies have created impressive organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices in human resource management. This award has become a powerful recruitment tool in the drive to attract and retain exceptional employees,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president.

“Being named one of the ‘Best and Brightest’ reinforces the fact that our work environment is one that engenders growth, innovation and success,” said Bob Knott, President of SWC Technology Partners. “SWC has achieved consistent growth despite the economic climate, adding 20 employees over the past 18 months and bringing in a steady stream of new clients, an accomplishment I attribute to our technical expertise and our outstanding team of professionals.

“There are many highly respected organizations alongside SWC on the ‘Best and Brightest’ list this year: CME Group, Golin Harris, Ernst & Young LLP, Digitas and Argonne National Laboratory, to name just a few,” Knott added. “We are in good company and honored to have earned this distinction.”

Judy Hsu from ABC-7 Chicago News and Pat Cassidy from WLS 890 AM News Radio will emcee the awards ceremony August 10. A series of workshops covering leading human resources topics takes place prior to the ceremony. More information is available at www.101bestandbrightest.com.
