SWC Technology Partners has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Chicago Tribune. This represents back-to-back years the Oak Brook IT consulting firm is named a top workplace by the Chicago Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

The Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces award is a testament to our approach to hiring the right people for the right reason and remaining committed to retaining and developing the best talent that Chicagoland has to offer. At the end of the day, when you surround yourself with good people that are passionate about the work they do, there is no limit to the amount of success they can achieve.
