Being named to this sought-after list year after year is outstanding validation of our commitment to developing employee talent
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 19, 2010
Alterian (LSE: ALN), the leader in customer engagement technology and solutions, today announced that, for the sixth consecutive year, it has been named to the list of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.”
Sponsored by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), the award recognizes companies that demonstrate breakthrough human resource initiatives.
Companies are nominated by individuals, either from within or outside their own organizations. An independent research firm evaluates each company's entry in nine categories: communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multi-culturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.
“Being named to this sought-after list year after year is outstanding validation of our commitment to developing employee talent,” said David Eldridge, CEO of Alterian. “Since our employees really are the cornerstone of what drives much of our success here in Chicago and around the world, we foster a work environment that offers them the ability to grow along with our company.”
Indeed, in Alterian’s latest annual report, audited preliminary results for the year ending March 31 showed revenue up 14%, with high customer retention rates and high proportion of revenues expected to recur. Much of the company’s success this past year can be attributed to both Alterian’s comprehensive product offerings and new releases, and to the employees who manage them.
NABR will honor the award recipients at the annual symposium and awards luncheon on Monday, August 2 at the Oak Brook Marriott. Beyond Alterian, other high-profile companies named to this year’s list include Comcast, Radio Flyer, Verizon Wireless and Cosi, Inc.
