November 21, 2014   //   News

SWC Technology Partners was recently named one of the National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR). The award recognizes businesses that reflect the program’s mission of creating better businesses, richer lives and stronger communities. The Best and Brightest program works to improve work environments for all employees.

The winning companies were evaluated by an independent research firm, which reviewed a number of key details. They included benefits, community initiatives, diversity, employee education and development, employee recognition strategies, retention, workforce engagement and work-life balance.

This award is a reflection of SWC’s commitment to their employees and dedication to creating an environment focused on teamwork and professional growth. SWC offers a wide variety of benefits to attract and retain top talent including, domestic partner coverage, flextime, performance incentives, a comprehensive wellness program and extensive educational, training and mentorship opportunities. Employees are also motivated through many other programs and events, including Friday happy hours, community service projects and numerous corporate outings ranging from rooftop parties, Cub’s games and fitness challenges.

“SWC is a special place to work because of the employees that work here. It’s not the other way around,” said Bob Knott, President of SWC. “In the end, being recognized on a national scale is a credit to them and their spirit of teamwork, pride and the commitment they have to each other.”

“Nationally recognized award recipients keep innovative human resource initiatives at the forefront of their company culture and make it a priority to consider their workforce as an essential aspect in their company success,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR President, which presents the program. “Our list of nationally recognized companies has grown significantly this year. We are proud to recognize and honor these winning companies.”

The full list of winners is posted online, including well-known companies such as American Academy of Pediatrics, Ask.com, Kcura, and Prezi. All winners will be honored at an awards luncheon on August 5, 2013, at the Double Tree Hotel in Oak Brook.
