CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Place to Work has again named Bounteous to its Best Workplaces in Chicago list for 2021. The honor comes as Bounteous, a long-term fixture in the Chicago community, nearly doubled the space of its current location to accommodate the growth of the Chicago-area team and prepare for additional new hires in 2021 and beyond.
Bounteous ranks as the No. 2 best workplace for small-to-medium-sized companies of less than 1,000 in Chicago. Bounteous was also listed as the No. 2 best workplace for small-to-medium-sized companies in 2020. Bounteous’ competitive ranking is based on anonymous surveys completed by employees about their experiences at work. Ninety-five percent of Bounteous team members say it’s a great place to work.
"Bounteous creates innovative digital experiences for leading brands who choose us as a partner because of the skills of our people," said Keith Schwartz, co-founder and CEO of Bounteous. "This recognition highlights our commitment to being a great employer, one that invests in the industry’s best talent, provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, all in a supportive and inclusive culture."
Bounteous team members do cutting-edge work for brands such as Coca-Cola, Shake Shack, Mars Wrigley, Caesars Entertainment, Wawa, and Domino’s. The Chicago office is Bounteous' largest collaboration center and serves as its global headquarters. Bounteous recently expanded and updated its two-story, 25,150 square-foot, loft-style space to support a team that continues to grow its headcount, practice, and client capabilities.
The Best Workplaces in Chicago stand out for excelling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces. The ranking considered over 27,000 responses from Chicago-area employees.
