Skender Construction named No. 1 Best Place to Work in Illinois 2014
Skender Construction has been named the No. 1 Best Place to Work in Illinois for the second consecutive year. In 2014, Skender, last year’s leader of the small employer category, joined the ranks and made the top of the list of medium-sized companies.
The awards program, promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger, was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. Companies from across the state entered into the survey program to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. A total of 65 area businesses were then recognized at an awards ceremony on Monday, May 12 for providing employees with a successful work environment.
Human resources director Lisa Latronico accepted the award on Skender Construction’s behalf. “We are going through a growth spurt and expect more growth for 2015,” says Latronico. “Our employee-centric culture and benefits programs help attract the best talent.”
Consistently leading the construction industry for its outstanding commitment to employee satisfaction, Skender offers its staff company sponsored health insurance, a 401(k) profit sharing plan, continued education reimbursement, health and wellness packages, paid vacation and holidays, service awards for multiple years of service, innovation awards, a mentoring program and regular company activities and outings. The company has also been named one of the Best Places to Work by Crain’s Chicago Business and Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for.
