Baird & Warner has been named Chicago’s 3rd best place to work.  This morning Chicago Tribune announced the results for their Top 100 Workplaces in 2012.  The top companies were  found using the results of a comprehensive look at each company’s employee feedback, leadership, direction, communication, motivation and results.  Baird & Warner also won a special honor for top leadership in a large company.

“The Baird & Warner name has been synonymous with innovation and integrity for over 150 years,” said Stephen W. Baird, president and CEO of Baird & Warner.  “While I am proud of our performance, I also believe the Baird  & Warner culture is an asset.  My family has worked for generations to create a company that we can be proud of, but it’s really our fantastic broker associates and employees who set the tone.  Their positive and upbeat energy creates buzz in each and every one of our offices, making this a place where people want to come to work every day.”

Culture was a significant contributing factor to winning this award.  Chicago Tribune hired Workplace Dynamics to evaluate small, medium and large Chicago-area companies.  What all the winners shared in common was a positive office culture which has been seen on a national scale for years at companies such as Google and Zappos.

“We all spend an awful lot of time at work,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics, to Chicago Tribune.  “Creating a really great workplace for employees is something that I think businesses have an obligation to do.  In addition to making money, you need create an environment where your people want to be.”

More than 1,600 companies participated and at Baird & Warner we could not be happier with this award.  The hard work, dedication and culture created by every one of the broker associates and employees is something special that’s impossible  not to take pride in.
