Sargent & Lundy Named One of Chicago’s Top 100 Workplaces

Recognition based on employee responses to a confidential survey

November 13, 2015 - Sargent & Lundy has been named to the Chicago Tribune's list of Top 100 Workplaces in the Chicago area.  The firm was one of 25 firms recognized in the Large Employers category. The 2015 special report, published in the Chicago Tribune today, showcases the best places to work in the Chicago region.

The Top 100 Workplaces are determined by feedback from confidential employee surveys. Workplace Dynamics, an independent research firm specializing in employee surveys and workplace improvement, conducts and analyzes the responses on behalf of the Chicago Tribune.

The survey asks employees to evaluate their employers on various issues, such as the direction of the company, effectiveness of management, career opportunities, working environment, employee appreciation, and salary and benefits. Eighty-five percent of Sargent & Lundy employees in the Chicago area responded to the anonymous survey.

"We're honored to be recognized on this prestigious list of companies," said CEO Tom White. "What makes this award so notable is the results are based on employee surveys. One of Sargent & Lundy's greatest strengths has always been hiring and retaining the best of the best across a wide range of fields and skills. Thanks to our employees, Sargent & Lundy is a great place to work."

The winning companies were announced at an award ceremony last night. The event and Top 100 Workplaces special report publicly recognized the most dynamic and supportive area companies to work for.
