Chicago Tribune Names NOW a Winner of the Chicago Top Workplaces Award

November 14, 2019

top-work-place tribune 2019NOW has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Chicago Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures multiple aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, among others.

NOW has been honored many times before in recognition of worker satisfaction, including both regional and national Best and Brightest Company to Work For® awards.

“While we appreciate the recognition that comes from awards based upon employee surveys, more importantly it is a helpful way for us to better understand the things that engage employees at NOW, as well as how we can improve,” said Jim Emme, NOW CEO. “It helps us become stronger and better understand the collective feedback from employees, and contributes to our low rate of staff turnover.”

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”
