Top Brokerage Named No. 1 Workplace by the Chicago Tribune for the Second Year
Chicago, Ill. – November 13, 2015 – Baird & Warner has received its fourth consecutive Top Workplace award and was named the No. 1 workplace in Chicagoland by the Chicago Tribune. The company was named the No. 1 workplace in 2014, No. 2 in 2013 and No. 3 in 2012.
“To me, being a Top Workplace four years running is about doing things the right way. It means creating a culture of open doors and open minds that empowers us to grow as individuals and thrive as a company,” said Steve Baird, president and CEO of Baird & Warner, Chicagoland's largest, locally owned independent residential real estate services company. “As we celebrate our 160th anniversary this year, I am immensely proud of all that we have achieved, and I firmly believe that by empowering our people -- nearly 2,300 across Chicagoland -- we are building a solid foundation for the future.”
The annual award was given to the real estate services company based on a confidential survey of its brokers and employees regarding categories such as company culture, training, communication and results.
The Chicago Tribune commissioned research firm WorkplaceDynamics to conduct the Top Workplace study. Based on a nomination process, the company coordinated an exclusive and confidential survey of thousands of Chicago-area employees to determine who will be on the Top Workplace list.
