Optimal Design Named one of 2016 Best Places to Work In Illinois

Putting employees first is what great brands do. Optimal Design employee experience ranks top in the state.

(Arlington Heights, IL) Award winning product development and tech consulting firm Optimal Design announced today they were recently named one of 2016 Best Places to Work in Illinois.
The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation.

“To be recognized by this award and endorsed by our employees is such an honor,” says Joe Wascow, Chief Marketing Officer and Co-Founder at Optimal Design. “It has always been our goal to build a best in class brand and to service our clients who rank among the world’s leading innovators,” Wascow continues. “But you can’t build a great brand if you don’t behave like one. Our employees deliver our brand promise each day – To Advance Human Ability – and we want to keep that same promise to them, to make them better, to innovate for life. It’s a cause that benefits us all, and it’s what makes us a Best Place to Work. We are truly grateful for this recognition.”

Optimal Design will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on May 26 and will be profiled in a special publication on June 27. The final rankings will be announced at the event and announced on the Business Ledger website (www.dhbusinessledger.com).
