DragonSpears, a custom software development company, was named one of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” in 2020 by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR). This marks the fourth consecutive year that DragonSpears has received this recognition.
Each year, companies throughout Chicago compete to be named one of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®.” This national program celebrates those companies that are doing better business, creating richer lives, and building stronger communities. Only companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach receive this award.
“We're honored to be recognized once again as one of 'Chicago's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®.' Receiving this honor is made possible by the enthusiasm and hard work of our employees, their dedication to each other and our clients, and their ongoing commitment to our core values." Patrick Emmons, Founder and CEO.
DragonSpears was evaluated based on key measures in various categories. They include Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Employee Enrichment, Engagement, and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Diversity and Inclusion; Work-Life Balance; and more. Organizations are judged by confidential employee responses in each category, and the overwhelmingly positive responses are what allowed DragonSpears to receive this exclusive recognition.
“DragonSpears has an incredible benefits package and work-life balance, but for me, it’s the growth opportunities and the fact that no two years are the same that makes DragonSpears so special. In five years, I’ve never been bored and I can’t imagine having elevated my knowledge and skills as rapidly anywhere else.” Natalie Lopez, General Manager.
Almost 1,200 companies were nominated, and DragonSpears was one of 156 companies that received this recognition.
“DragonSpears has built a culture that enables both professional and personal success. I’m very proud to be part of a company that has the ability to not only create the unique culture they have, but to keep it alive during challenging times.” Lisa Koci, Marketing Manager.
