NILES, Ill., August 23, 2012—For the fifth time, Shure Incorporated has been named one of “Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies To Work For” by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR). The award was established to honor companies that recognize Associates as their greatest asset.
As the only audio company to be honored on the list, Shure was selected because of its commitment to excellence across human resources practices and employee enrichment programs. The Company won the same award in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2011.
“S. N. Shure often said he was building an organization of people, not an organization that built products,” said Sandy LaMantia, President and CEO of Shure Incorporated. “Thanks to his philosophy, our company has dedicated and creative Associates across the globe. Today we are celebrating an award that honors companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset.”
In May 2012, Shure Associates were chosen at random and invited to complete an online survey through a website administered by the NABR. The survey covered various areas of employer excellence and included companies whose programs and policies are considered best practices. The evaluation included ten categories that Associates value in a company: communication and shared vision, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and inclusion, employee education and development, recruitment and selection, strategic company performance, employee achievement and recognition, employee enrichment and retention, and work/life balance.
“I am especially pleased that we have received this recognition so many times,” said Paul Applebaum, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, and General Counsel. “It reflects the hard work and devotion of many Associates, including our Human Resources professionals, who work tirelessly to ensure that our Company remains a great and rewarding place to work.”
