Oak Brook, IL, July 11, 2011 – For the third year running, SWC Technology Partners has been named one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

SWC and other winners will be honored at the annual “Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” awards luncheon on August 1, 2011 at the Chicago Oak Brook Marriott.

The selection of the 2011 winners is a result of an independent research firm that evaluates each company’s entry in the following categories: communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, small business, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.

“This year’s winners epitomize what it means to be committed to employees. Our winners excelled at employee relations, used innovation to motivate employees, implemented creative compensation programs and more. They serve as a standard for other companies to work toward,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president. “We are proud to honor this year’s 101 winners.”

“As complicated as business can be there are some things that are pretty straight forward. When it comes to taking care of our employees and providing them with a positive, creative and satisfying work environment we think it’s a fundamental component of success,” said Bob Knott, President of SWC. “As our firm expands we will continue to invest in the cultural, educational and social programs that have allowed us to grow as a team while still feeling like a family.”
