NAPCO Has the Best and Brightest (and we’re not just talking kitchen finishes)
Every once in awhile, we leave our beautiful Skokie office and head to downtown Chicago to mingle with our fellow businesses. And last month, we were lucky enough to attend the National Association for Business Resources luncheon in the Loop and were even more fortunate to be one of the winners of “Chicago’s 2019 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®”! We were surrounded by our amazing peers, an alphabet soup of acronyms across many sectors, all being recognized for exceptional leadership and daily efforts to deliver exceptional human resources practices.
Wow. We’re honored. And we’d add that while the company was on the receiving end of the award, we want to take the opportunity to applaud and thank our employees, who are most definitely the best and brightest.
Hire From Within When Possible
NAPCO is committed to our employees. Our current president, Dani Nichols, started with us as a part-time customer service rep in 1996, then became vice president in 2004. She was promoted to president in 2018, and under her management, the company has had low turnover, expanded its product line, and added distribution to Pacific Rim countries. Nichols is a clear example of nurturing new hires to grow and succeed within the company. If they are encouraged to be the best and brightest, then our company will be too.
HR is PR
Our human resources team is committed to finding and supporting our employees, and, in turn, that practice attracts great folks. The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) award celebrated our offering excellent communication habits, healthy work and life balance, educational opportunities, workplace diversity, and employee retention.
NAPCO strives to keep our attention on making our team happy, and we’re pleased to join not only our fellow Chicago leaders but also companies around the country as well, in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, San Diego, and San Francisco. We’re thrilled to uphold the mission of “Better Business, Richer Lives, Stronger Communities.”
“People are our priority,” says Nichols. “Our dedicated staff is the core of the company, and we’re floored that the NABR chose to uplift what we do within our community!”
Let NAPCO help you get floored (and refinished!). Let’s talk about people and products – call us at 800-888-1081.
