The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has again recognized NOW Foods as one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For, an annual competition that honors companies demonstrating an exceptional commitment to their employees and exemplifying the best human resource practices. This is the sixth year in a row NOW has received this designation.
Each company’s entry is evaluated by an independent research firm based on key measures in various categories which include 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; Strategic Company Performance and the Best of the Best Small Business.
“Although we have received this award a number of times, it still feels terrific to know that our people are happy here and consider NOW a great place to work,” said Jim Emme, president of NOW Foods. “We’ve added 200 new jobs over the last year, which could be disruptive, but the employees are so invested in the company that they have made the growth fairly seamless. I am so proud of them all.”
The independent market research company and an independent panel of judges review an extensive amount of quantitative and qualitative data. As part of the process, employees at each nominated company are randomly selected to complete a confidential survey about their work environment.
