Skender Construction Named as a Best Place to Work in Illinois for Eighth Consecutive Year
Skender Construction was recently named as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. Skender Construction has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois in the medium category.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a best place to work again this year. Our people play a big role in shaping our culture, and so many of our team members are passionate about making sure our culture evolves as we grow,” said Lisa Latronico, vice president of people & culture at Skender Construction.
The company has continued to evolve its culture by adding reverse reviews and enhancing formal training programs for all employees. Skender has also added Team Leaders, a select group of managers who are devoted to reinforcing culture initiatives by engaging a select group of managers to implement a variety of programs designed to connect executive goals with everyone throughout the organization.
“These individuals are enthusiastic about employee growth potential and the direction of the company as a whole,” Latronico added.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
Skender Construction will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on May 26 and will be profiled in a special publication on June 27. The final rankings will be announced at the event and announced on the Business Ledger website (www.dhbusinessledger.com).
