“We’re pleased to announce we have been named one of Chicago’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.” From the press release:

Chicago, IL – Clique Studios, a leading digital agency based in Chicago, announced today that the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) named the firm one of Chicago’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®.”

Winners were named after an independent research firm evaluated each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories, including Compensation, Benefits, Employee Education, Communication, Diversity, Work-Life Balance, and Community Initiatives.

“We’ve always acknowledged that our agency’s focus on producing the best work for our clients can create a demanding work environment. Making sure our teams can perform at that level while enjoying coming to work has been a constant focus of ours as our agency grows. Receiving this recognition hopefully indicates we’re on the right track,”  said Ted Novak, Partner at Clique.

The winners will be honored at a symposium and awards celebration on Friday, July 10 2015 at the Oak Brook Marriott. The winning companies also vie for 11 elite awards, one granted for each category. An overall winner that excelled in all categories will be honored with a “Best of the Best Overall” award. Judy Hsu from ABC 7 Chicago News and Pat Cassidy from WBBM-AM News Radio will emcee the awards ceremony.

“It’s a big honor, and we were able to learn a lot about our business during this process. When our team was asked why they enjoy working at Clique, a consistent response was that there is a personal connection with the work and the people around them,” said Derek Nelson, Partner at Clique. “The process has also helped identify other areas we can focus on to attract and retain the best fit talent for the culture at Clique. We want to keep getting better.”
