This award was given by the National Association of Business Resources (NABR) during an awards ceremony on August 4, 2008 at the Chicago Marriott in Oak Brook, Illinois. NABR states; “The 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For awards were established to honor those companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset. These are companies that work with imaginations and conviction to create organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices in human resource management.” Evaluation categories consisted of many items including culture, communications, training, compensation, benefits, recruiting, and community initiatives.
Scott Zatt, Director of Human Resources for UI said, “We listen carefully to our employees and with the full support of ownership we provide a productive workplace that allows for work-life balance.”
