“With people being the engine behind our company, we spend significant time to ensure we’re providing our employees with the best environment,” said Carson Conant, CEO at Mediafly. “This means listening to our employees to continue improvements in our office so that they are able to do their best work, enjoy their days at the office and feel recognized and appreciated for their accomplishments.”
This year, Crain’s Chicago Business partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees. The survey included more than 4,500 employees in the Chicagoland area and the awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the 100 best companies to work for in Chicago.
“Mediafly’s commitment to employee excellence and workplace goes beyond the executive team,” said Laura Singer, HR Manager at Mediafly. “Before each employee’s first day at Mediafly, we sign a commitment in our offer letters that states we will continue to push ourselves and our team members and remain committed to doing everything in our ability to make Mediafly a better company. This dedication and commitment truly bonds us and allows to work together under the same mission while having fun.”
Determining the Best Places to Work in Chicago involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the best companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
