The respect of the various lifestyles and career stages of the different employees and the emphasis on fostering work-life balance is reflected in the flexible approach that the management takes with each employee’s needs.

Winning 20th Place on Crain’s Chicago Business – “Best Places to Work” List

When Crain’s Chicago Business created a list of the “Best Places to Work” in Chicago three years ago, it joined a whole group of other prestigious Crain’s lists famous throughout the Midwest for compiling data on businesses that spanned from the largest privately held corporations, to the fifty that boasted fastest growth. In the first two years, Crain’s vetted and then published a list of the top 20 “Best Places to Work” in the Chicago metropolitan area. The requirements for consideration were constructed to allow only companies above a certain size to qualify. In this, the third year of competition, realizing that the backbone of both the American and Midwestern economies were in the Small and Medium Sized Enterprises category, the requirements for qualification were adjusted.

TRIUNE Health Group was now eligible to compete for the recognition of being one of the top 20 “Best Places to Work” in Chicagoland, so we notified Crain’s and their independent third party out of New York, Buck Consultants, of our intent. Buck Consultants employed rigorous controls to ensure that all information was kept in the strictest of confidence and reported in a way which protected the confidentiality of each participating organization.

Round 1: On October 19, 2009, the Employer Survey was released to all the participating companies in the Chicagoland area. Numerous corporations and businesses began the application process, of which, one hundred and fifty leading Chicagoland companies survived this round. According to one of the organizers, the 2010 Crain’s Chicago Business – “Best Places to Work” contest would prove to be the most intensely fought battle that Crain’s has ever seen. The Employer Survey focused on pay and promotion practices, health care and other benefits, hiring practices, and corporate culture. Approximately one month later, the employer portion of the survey was closed.

Happy employees mean happy customers. Once a month, Triune employees attend a staff meeting. It's an expensive proposition, given that its employees in the field bill by the hour and work as far away as Washington, D.C. "We feel it's essential that people hear directly from us what we're trying to accomplish and that we hear back from them what are the barriers to success, what's on their wish list," says Chris Yep, founder, president and CEO of the family-run business that provides rehabilitation services and wellness programs for insurance companies and small and large employers.

Understanding employees and customizing programs to meet their needs at different life and career stages may be the key characteristic of all the Best Places to Work. Hearing what employees need is part of Triune's emphasis on respect and a good work-life balance. In order to provide the best service, TRIUNE Health Group also provides employees in the field with a BlackBerry, air card, laptop and printer.
