CHICAGO — Ostrow Reisin Berk & Abrams, Ltd. (ORBA), one of Chicago’s largest public accounting firms, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Chicago Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few. This is the seventh year in a row that ORBA has received a Top Workplaces distinction by the Chicago Tribune.
“ORBA has seen tremendous growth in the past year. At the heart of this growth is the strength and the value that our employees bring to the company,” says Mark Thomson, Managing Director at ORBA. “This award is a testament not only to their hard work, but to the cohesive and productive work environment to which they contribute, and I am proud to share in this honor with them.”
WorkplaceDynamics specializes in employee feedback surveys and workplace improvement. This year alone, more than two million employees in over 6,000 organizations will participate in the Top Workplaces™ campaign.
“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.”
