Redwood Logistics Wins Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces 2019 Award!
Every year for the past 10 years, The Chicago Tribune has worked with Energage to rank workplaces in the Chicago area through employee surveys. These surveys assess everything from work-life balance to confidence in company leadership.
And every year, 150 companies from those surveys are awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Chicago Tribune.
To qualify for this award, a workplace must have at least 100 employees in the Chicago area and garner enough nominations. Once a company has enough nominations, they are grouped into 1 of 3 groups depending on the number of employees.
Redwood Logistics is proud to announce that today, for the 7th year, we were amongst those winners for the Top Workplaces in the Midsize category where we ranked at #45!
“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”
