CHICAGO – Unity Hospice has been named by the Chicago Tribune as one of Chicagoland’s “Top Workplace” for 2017, the third time they have received this honor. Additionally, Unity Hospice was among the top five small businesses to score highest in “meaningfulness”, meaing a broader sense of purpose in their work.
According to the Chicago Tribune, a job’s meaningfulness is consistently ranked by employees as one of the most important factors driving job satisfaction; even more so than pay and benefits, which can be described in the following article: Employees want their job to matter, but meaning at work can be hard to find.
The Chicago Tribune’s “Top Workplace” award recognizes local employers who provide good working environments and inspire their employees to do great things. Companies were selected based on employee surveys conducted by Energage, an independent research company formerly known as WorkplaceDynamics, that measured such key qualities including, but not limited to, company leadership, career opportunities and working environment.
The “Top Workplace” awards program explores how organizations champion good practice and create positive work environments. The Chicago Tribune encourages public, private, nonprofit and government organizations to invite their employees to provide input about their company culture through this program.
“The Chicago Tribune has been part of the economic vibrancy of Chicago for 170 years,” said Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bruce Dold. “We are proud to recognize those companies that stand out for their commitment to their employees and the community.”
Top Workplaces is presented by The Better Business Bureau and is sponsored by Wintrust Financial Corporation, the Chicago Cubs, Perillo Auto Group, Proven Business Systems, Rivers Casino, Uber, U.S. Cellular, Now Foods, AArete, The Prinz Law Firm, Gentleman Jack, Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, Binny’s Beverage Depot and Half Acre Beer. The event is produced by Tribune Events Group, the Chicago Tribune Media Group’s in-house events marketing team.
