Clayco Receives Illinois Best Places To Work Award
Chicago, IL (May 2, 2011)
Clayco Inc., a national full-service real estate and design-build firm, was recently named one of the 2011 Best Places to Work in Illinois by a statewide survey and awards program designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment.
The 2011 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 40 companies, 24 in the small/medium-sized list (15-249 U.S. employees) and 16 in the large-sized list (250+ U.S. employees).
The awards program, begun in 2006, is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Illinois State Council, and the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago, and managed by Best Companies Group.
Clayco operates an office in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., under the direction of Senior Vice President and Partner Kevin McKenna, and in 2010, expanded its presence in the area by opening an additional office in downtown Chicago. Clayco also has an office in St. Louis.
“Clayco has earned a reputation as being a great partner with our clients, contractors, suppliers, employees and the community,” said McKenna. “We take pride in this award because it reflects the high regard and respect that our employees have for our company. It is our hope that we will attract even greater numbers of high-energy, talented professionals to our team as our company continues to expand its Illinois operations.”
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part of the process, which was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the rankings.
