Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
For the fifth consecutive year, the McTigue Financial Group, a Northwestern Mutual office in Chicago, has been named one of Chicago’s Best Places to Work. This year the financial services firm ranked fifth among the top 20, according to the April 1, 2013 issue of Crain’s Chicago Business. Personal and professional development was among the primary reasons the firm was cited by its financial representatives and staff as a top workplace environment.
“To be honored in this way for five consecutive years validates our guiding principle that all individuals committed to personal and professional growth achieve greater success when supported by systems of accountability and a culture of high expectations,” said John W. McTigue, managing partner. “And even more so, we understand the success of our firm is to foster a workplace environment that invests in growing people at every stage of their career.”
The McTigue Financial Group is one of only three organizations that have consistently ranked among the top 20 Best Places to Work in Chicago in the past five years. It is the only financial services firm in the top 20.
More than 125 companies vied for a position on this prestigious list in 2013. Buck Consultants, a global human resources consulting firm, developed two surveys for Crain’s Chicago Business, one focusing on the company and another focusing on the people who work there. The company portion focused on quantitative issues about pay, benefits, hiring practices, and corporate culture. The second survey asked workers their opinions in four key areas: relationships with management and co-workers, career development and other day-to-day workplace issues. The two surveys were scored with 60% derived from the employee survey and 40% from the company survey.
