CHICAGO — ORBA, one of Chicago’s largest public accounting firms, has been awarded a 2021 Top Workplaces honor by the Chicago Tribune. The award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey that is administered by employee engagement technology partner, Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization including alignment, execution and connection. This is the ninth year ORBA has been awarded a Top Workplaces distinction.
“We are very happy to once again receive the Top Workplace 2021 Award from the Chicago Tribune,” said Mark Thomson, Managing Director at ORBA. “While this year has been hard on all of us, we have been able to learn from one another and adapt to the changes together. Most importantly, we have listened to our employees, their recommendations and concerns.”
In addition to the Top Workplaces honor, ORBA received two National Culture Excellence Awards — the Professional Development Award, for placing a special focus on developing employees’ careers and enabling the firm’s people to grow professionally, and the Remote Work Award, which recognizes Top Workplaces with at least 50% of survey responders who indicated they work “Mostly Remote” or “Fully Remote.”
“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage of CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
