For the sixth consecutive year, DMC was named one of Chicago’s “Best Places to Work” by Crain's Chicago Business. Crain's highlighted DMC's emphasis on culture and employee engagement during an awards reception, where DMC ranked 5th among midsize companies.
Partnering with Best Companies Group, Crain's surveyed 26,000 Chicago-area employees to find the top places to work. The list of 100 finalists was announced in March, and the official rankings were announced at an event on April 11, 2019.
Love Coming to Work
"You have created workplace cultures where employees love to come to work," noted Best Companies Group Founder, Peter Burke at the Crain's awards reception. Burke noted that the average engagement level for U.S. companies is 41%, while the companies on the Crain's list enjoy an average engagement rate of 95%.
The Best Places to Work list seeks to highlight local businesses that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees. Crain’s partnered with Best Companies Group to survey Chicago employees about everything from their workplace to benefits to company culture. Applying to the program is a two-step process evaluating company policies and soliciting employee feedback.
The Best Places to Work in Chicago program was open to all publicly or privately held organizations with at least 25 employees working in the seven-county area of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will in Illinois and Lake in Indiana.
