For the second year in a row, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has recognized NOW Foods as one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. This annual competition honors companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset.
According Al Powers, NOW President, "We are pleased to again be named as one of the 101 Best and Brightest companies to work for in Chicagoland.” Powers added, “This is a testimony to the people who work at NOW and supports our goal to continue to make NOW a great place to work!"
According to the NABR, the 101 winning companies each work with imagination and conviction to create organizational value and business results through their policies and Best Practices in human resource management. The selection, recognition and awarding of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For allows businesses to showcase these policies and Best Practices, while demonstrating why the company is an ideal place for employees to work.
Winners are selected by an independent market research company, which reviews an extensive amount of quantitative and qualitative data, as well as an independent panel of judges. As part of the process, employees at each nominated company are randomly selected to complete a confidential survey about their work environment.
An extensive array of professional criteria is used to determine the top 101 best companies, including, communication, community initiatives, compensation & benefits, diversity & multi-culturalism, employee education & development, employee engagement & commitment, recognition & retention, recruitment & selection, and work-life balance. NOW's mission, values, culture and leadership are all focused on the company’s commitment to its employees.
