NOW®, the largest independent and family-owned manufacturer of natural products in the U.S. health food store channel, has been named a 2019 Best and Brightest Company to Work For in Chicago. The awards identify companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach. This is NOW’s 12th consecutive year of recognition.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® is a program of the National Association for Business Resources that provides the business community with the opportunity to gain recognition, showcase their best practices, and demonstrate why they are an ideal place for employees to work.
Nominated companies go through an evaluation which includes assessing compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives and strategic company performance.
“It’s very humbling for our company to again be honored with the recognition of being one of the Best and Brightest companies to work for in the Chicagoland area,” said Jim Emme, NOW CEO. “This award is a testament to the excellence and dedication of each of our team members that make our company great.”
In addition to this regional Best and Brightest award, NOW’s programs to support all staff members with a positive working environment have been repeatedly recognized as a Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation and The Nation’s Best & Brightest in Wellness.
The award will be presented at the National Association for Business Resources Best and Brightest National Summit in September 2019 in Chicago.
