St. Charles, IL (PRWEB) July 26, 2008
Gearmotor manufacturer Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. has been selected the second consecutive year as one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).
The Best and Brightest awards were established to honor those companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset. "The 2008 winning companies have a real commitment and dedication to their employees. The best practices and innovative human resource initiatives that were demonstrated should inspire others to look for new ways to recognize employees as their greatest asset", said Jennifer Kluge, NABR President.
Each winning company is evaluated on the following categories: communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection, and worklife balance and small business.
"Bison is pleased to be honored with this award once again. Without our employees' dedication and commitment to deliver quality products, we would not have been considered. Our employees are truly our company's greatest asset," said Martin Swarbrick, President and CEO of Bison Gear & Engineering.
Bison will be honored with the other Best and Brightest recipients at an awards ceremony on August 4 at the Chicago Marriott in Oak Brook, Illinois.
