NILES, Ill., July 17, 2013—Receiving the accolade for the sixth 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). A competition that honors employer excellence, Shure was selected for recognizing its Associates as the Company’s greatest asset and for showcasing best practices across human resources and employee enrichment programs. Shure is the only audio company on the 2013 list and also won the award in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, and 2012.
“From the day Sidney N. Shure opened his first office in 1925 in Chicago, we still know that our Associates are truly the root of our success,” said Sandy LaMantia, President and CEO of Shure Incorporated. “Today, we continue to recognize the hard work, creativity, and achievements of our talented workforce as the foundation of Shure’s unique culture and legendary products.”
To be considered for the award, in May 2013, Shure Associates were randomly selected to complete an online survey through a website administered by the NABR. The survey covered various areas of employer excellence, capturing companies with programs and policies that 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.
“Most organizations would be proud to be named once to the list of ‘Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,’” said Paul Applebaum, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, and General Counsel at Shure. “But to be named six times, really says something about the environment we’ve created at Shure. It says we are talented, relentless, and committed, year after year, to sustaining a fulfilling Company that delivers the very best in audio products.”
