Baker Tilly named “Best Place to Work” by Crain’s Chicago Business

CHICAGO – Baker Tilly has been named one of the Top 20 "Best Places to Work" in Chicago by Crain’s Chicago Business. "Best Places to Work" recognizes Chicago companies in several key areas such as open and transparent management, clear communication of company goals, and obvious paths to promotion.

Buck Consultants, an employee and human resources consulting firm, developed two surveys, one for the company and one for its employees. The employer portion focused on quantitative issues about pay, promotions, health care and other benefits, hiring practices, and more. The employee engagement portion dealt with fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development, and other day-to-day workplace issues. The two surveys had a possible combined score of 1,000 points, with 600 derived from the employee survey. Of the more than 150 companies that applied, 100 completed both rounds. More than 12,000 employees took the survey.

“At Baker Tilly, we encourage individual creativity, initiative, and entrepreneurship," Terrance Moreno, senior manager, human resources, said. “Baker Tilly’s core values of integrity, passion, and stewardship resonate throughout the firm and help define who we are as a company and an employer."

“This recognition speaks volumes," Jeff DeYoung, office managing partner, said. “Baker Tilly fosters an environment of respect, support, and genuine care for one another. We are proud of this honor and salute our employees for their hard work, skill, and enthusiasm."

Crain’s Chicago Business "Best Places to Work" issue was released on April 2. The report can also be found online.
