– Savant Capital Management announced today that it has been named as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2016 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 30 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 26 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 18 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). Savant was recognized as one of the top 20 organizations within the medium-sized employer category.
"We are honored and proud to be named as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Illinois,” said Brent Brodeski, CEO of Savant. “Savant is committed to providing a team-orientated and rewarding place to work and we want to thank the team for their continued dedication to the firm and our clients.”
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
§ Have at least 15 employees working in Illinois
§ Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
§ Be a publicly or privately held business
§ Have a facility in the state of Illinois
§ Be in business a minimum of one year
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part of the process was worth 25 percent of the total evaluation and consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices and demographics. The second part was worth 75 percent of the total evaluation and consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
Savant Capital Management was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on May 26 and will be profiled in a special publication on June 27. Final rankings can be found on the Business Ledger website at dhbusinessledger.com.
