Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work ForNAPCO has been named one of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” by the National Association For Business Resources. This highly sought-after award is granted to just 101 Chicago-area businesses each year for having demonstrated above-and-beyond dedication to customer service and human resources.

Each of the 101 companies will also be competing for 13 elite awards in each of the categories they qualify for. Companies are divided into small, medium, and large businesses according to the number of people employed at each business (1-100, 101-300, and 301+ respectively).

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been named as one of Chicago’s best and brightest companies in the small business category,” said Steve Coven, Owner and Creative Director at NAPCO. “At NAPCO, providing top-notch customer service has been our mission for over thirty years, and I am so pleased that this dedication has been officially recognized.”

Companies are selected for this award by an independent research firm that evaluates each entry based on several different standards. These include compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee enrichment, engagement, and retention, employee education and development, recruitment, and many other categories.

“I am very excited to be attending the symposium and awards luncheon this year,” commented Dani Nichols, Vice President at NAPCO. “The motto of this award is ‘better business, richer lives, and stronger communities,’ which is exactly what we are striving for each day at NAPCO. I hope to be able to connect with like-minded business owners and learn useful growth strategies at the event.”
