Seventh-Annual Special Edition and Awards Ceremony Celebrate Chicago’s Leading Companies

Being recognized as a Top Workplace in Chicago is living proof that we’re fostering a culture that’s on pace with other organizations in the city.

Upshot has been recognized as one of the area’s most dynamic and supportive local businesses by the Chicago Tribune in its special “Top Workplaces 2016” issue. The Friday, November 11 special edition of the newspaper identified the Chicago companies chosen for recognition by its employees. All winners were honored during the Top Workplaces 2016 event, held at Solider Field’s exclusive United Club on Thursday, November 10.

Upshot was named to the Top Workplaces in Chicago list for the sixth time. The agency has been inspiring people to engage with, buy and share world-class brands for more than 20 years. They believe culture and creativity go hand in hand and have found just the right mix of inspiration, challenging work, camaraderie and fun to make Upshot a great workplace. “We work in a very competitive industry, where culture makes a difference in attracting and retaining great talent.” says Upshot President and CEO Brian Kristofek. “Being recognized as a Top Workplace in Chicago is living proof that we’re fostering a culture that’s on pace with other organizations in the city.”

Upshot joined fellow honorees and more than 700 C-level Chicago executives at the high-profile Top Workplaces 2016 awards ceremony, now in its seventh year. Companies were selected by employee surveys conducted by Workplace Dynamics that measured such key qualities as company leadership, communication, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The top finishers were announced during the celebratory annual awards ceremony.

“Each year, the Chicago Tribune is proud to recognize the companies that are making a real difference in the lives of their employees,” said Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bruce Dold, who served as the host of the Top Workplaces 2016 event. “This year’s lineup of progressive-minded businesses reflects those qualities that truly make Chicago the City That Works.”
