CHICAGO, IL – April 16, 2015 – Advanced Resources, a leading Chicago-based staffing agency and talent solutions provider, announced today they have been named as one of the 2015 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, the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago, MRA-The Management Association, 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. 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; and
– Be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. 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.
“We are honored to be named as one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois 2015,” said Rich Diaz, Advanced Resources President. “Our employees are some of the most talented, successful individuals in the staffing industry. I’m very proud that our employees think highly of our company and of their experience working at Advanced Resources.”
Advanced Resources will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on May 6 and will be profiled in a special publication by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on June 22. The final rankings will be announced at the event.
