Laurus Strategies Named as a Winner in “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” in 2014

Laurus Strategies, a human resources firm specializing in comprehensive employee lifecycle solutions, announced today it was the winner of the “Employee Enrichment, Engagement, and Retention” category in the 2014 Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition. The Best and Brightest competition is an annual metric-driven analysis of companies who are demonstrating best practices in human capital management.

“As an employee-first company, we ensure our internal team has the necessary resources they need to grow in their career and fully serve our clients,” said President Scott Carter. “To make this possible, we developed a career progression program which includes training sessions as well as monthly performance feedback so every employee has the opportunity to engage and advance.”

The company culture at Laurus Strategies is driven by its six pillars:

  • Dream Big
  • Have Courage
  • Take Initiative
  • Be Accountable
  • Ridiculous Service
  • Give Back

Employees who best embody these pillars are recognized at an internal celebration called the Heart of Laurus. Further, Laurus Strategies provides opportunities for team camaraderie through new employee luncheons, breakfasts served by leadership, and internal competitions ranging from Wii tournaments to bake-offs.

Principal Lisa Pepoon, who accepted the Best and Brightest award on behalf of Laurus Strategies said, “At Laurus, we have a mutual caring, respect, and kindness for one another. I believe this stems in part from the fact that everyone here strives to embody all of our pillars.”

“We are regularly helping our clients develop and integrate employee enrichment and engagement programs, and do so with confidence because we know employees are the most valuable investment a company may have,” added Carter.
