StratEx Named Crain’s Top 25 Best Places to Work 2017

unnamed-3We are so honored to be in Crain’s Top 25 Best Places to Work in 2017!

Since 2008, Crain’s has singled out the 10 best companies to work for in the Chicago area. For 2017, Crain’s sifted through 15,000-plus employee surveys that detailed everything from compensation to benefits to company culture.

According to Crain’s, the annual “Best Places to Work” aims to identify local Chicago companies “that do the very best by their employees.” This year, the list was expanded to include 25 winning companies, as opposed to 10 winners in past years. Crain’s held an awards ceremony breakfast this morning where the 50 finalist companies were narrowed down to the final winners.

“Company culture is at the heart of everything we do,” said Adam Ochstein, StratEx Founder, and CEO. “I’m proud to be part of a company that doesn’t just say they value employees, they actually do.”

Founded 2003, StratEx has always strived to be a place where employees are truly cared for and supported in all aspects of life. In the past year, StratEx has further cemented its commitment to being an outstanding workplace by starting an employee-run philanthropy committee, StratEx Serves, which coordinates and identifies volunteer/charity opportunities for all employees. We’ve also developed an employee-run culture club, which meets regularly to brainstorm ways to improve the company’s culture and also initiate company-wide activities throughout the year. Additionally, company culture and hiring for culture fit has been top of mind as we grow and hire more employees. (Check out StratEx Careers)
