NOW Foods is honored to be named one of the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces for 2011, the second year in a row NOW has received this award. The Top Workplace program was created by the Chicago Tribune to recognize businesses in the Chicago area that exemplify the highest levels of employee satisfaction related to the direction of the company, execution of its mission, and working conditions. The Top Workplace program is noteworthy for the fact that 100% of the information used to determine winning companies is taken from the survey responses of actual employees.
