For the third consecutive year, Omron Automation and Safety has been selected to the prestigious list of "Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For." From a pool of thousands of competing company entries, Omron joined this elite group of Chicago area companies that excel in a commitment to their employees and their community.
The annual competition by the Illinois Institute of Technology's (IIT) Center for Research and Service involves in-depth surveys of each company's employee base, human resource practices and extension programs. Each company's assessment is designed to evaluate the organization's "communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition and retention" among other categories.
Survey data is processed, analyzed and scored by the Illinois Institute of Technology's Center for Research and Service to determine the 101 best companies based on each company's "commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment."
The Center for Research and Service provides each participating company with an assessment report offering insight as to their organization's strengths and weaknesses. Companies can further evaluate themselves in a benchmark comparison with other major metropolitan areas across the country.
Omron was also the winner of one of 12 coveted Elite Awards. Again, competing against thousands of other companies of all sizes, Omron was chosen as the best company in the Community Initiatives category for the entire Chicago region in recognition of the company's extensive volunteer involvement with community services.
