Anderson Pest Solutions has been recognized by the Chicago Tribune as one of 2015’s “Top 100 Workplaces” in the Chicago metropolitan area. Receiving the recognition for the fourth year in a row, Anderson is the only pest solutions organization in the Chicagoland area to make the “Top Workplaces” list.
Anderson, founded in 1913, has over 200 employees in 9 locations in the Midwest and continues to grow. The company prides itself on a culture of engagement, challenging employees to succeed and improve. Anderson’s management promotes a positive atmosphere that keeps employees involved and motivated.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized by the Chicago Tribune as a Top Workplace for the fourth consecutive year. I want to congratulate all of our staff for making Anderson a top workplace and helping us to continually deliver high quality services and value in all that we do.” said JT Barnard, Vice President of Anderson Pest Solutions. “Our people are what set us apart. We share a common purpose to deliver exceptional client service, develop our people, and give back to our community. This award is a testament to the passion and dedication of our employees and the environment they work so hard to create.”
The survey is conducted by a leading independent research firm on organizational health and employee engagement which conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with more than 30 major publishing partners and recognizes a National list of Top Workplaces. The Top Workplaces survey asked employees to grade Anderson in areas including opportunities to learn and grow, work/life balance, compensation and benefits, confidence in management and leadership, quality of training, and how the employee is valued by the organization.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
