Hanson makes 2012 list of Best Places to Work in Illinois
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Hanson Professional Services Inc. has been ranked No. 16 in the large-company category on the 2012 list of Best Places to Work in Illinois.
The statewide awards program recognizes companies that do their part to enhance the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 companies — 31 in the small-to-medium category (15-249 U.S. employees) and 19 in the large category (250 or more U.S. employees). Eligible companies must employ at least 15 employees in Illinois; be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity; be a publicly or privately held business; have a facility in Illinois; and be in business for a minimum of one year. A two-part assessment is used to gather data about each company, and surveys are given to the employer and the employees.
The list, established in 2006, is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois State Chamber of Commerce and the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago. Best Companies Group manages and analyzes the registration and survey process and determines rankings.
The full list and rankings were revealed at an awards ceremony on Thursday, May 17, and The Daily Herald Business Ledger will publish a special supplement June 25.
