Hiffman Earns 2021 Top Workplaces Designation
On Thursday, November 4th, The Chicago Tribune hosted a virtual awards ceremony wherein recipients of their 2021 Top Workplace awards were announced. Hiffman ranked 18th among similar-sized companies with fewer than 249 employees in Chicago, moving up the list from 2020’s #22 ranking. View the list.
This marks Hiffman’s eighth time earning the designation since the company’s first win in 2013. Combined with the 2018 Crain’s Best Places to Work win (and various other awards over the years), Hiffman has compiled a nice trophy shelf; however, the hardware is far less significant than the achievements they represent. The award was due in a large part to the level of participation and feedback contributed by 199 Hiffman employees who responded to the Top Workplaces survey.
CEO Dave Petersen said, “This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without our valued and trusted employees,” said CEO Dave Petersen. “Winning this award is a valuable testament to our company culture and speaks volumes to our current and future clients and potential employees. It allows us to stand out amongst the crowd for all the right reasons.”
Petersen said the employee participation and feedback are vital to the continued evolution of the company.
“These incredible insights help keep us on track with our core values of Accountability, Collaboration, Innovation and Integrity,” he said. “We’ve worked hard to create a culture where employees feel engaged, appreciated and fulfilled, which is not an easy thing to do. But together, we’ve done it!”
Hiffman will celebrate the honor with events throughout the week of 11/8.
