By: Courtney Demo


For the eighth consecutive year DragonSpears, a Midwest-based software consulting firm, has been named one of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” in 2024. This award is presented by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® identifies and honors companies that deliver exceptional employment practices and demonstrate an impressive commitment to their employees. Organizations are assessed based on categories such as Leadership, Strategy, and Company Performance; Community Initiatives and Corporate Responsibility; Recruitment and Selection; and Work-Life Blend.  Throughout the assessment process, participants will engage in comprehensive surveys. These assessments offer opportunities for analytical reports, comparisons with other companies across the nation, and opportunities to share knowledge.

“Thrilled beyond words to announce that our team has once again been recognized as one of the Best & Brightest Companies to Work For, marking our eighth consecutive year of this prestigious honor! This accolade is a testament to the unwavering dedication and passion of every member of our organization, as well as the invaluable support and collaboration from our esteemed partners. It's not just about the work we do, but the culture we cultivate together—a culture of innovation, collaboration, and genuine care for one another. I couldn't be prouder of our incredible team and the strong relationships we've built with our partners, and I'm excited to continue building on our success as we strive for excellence in everything we do.” said Patrick Emmons, CEO at DragonSpears.

We've established a schedule of in-person gatherings and complemented these with remote social lunches and happy hours held weekly and monthly. These initiatives are designed to foster a sense of connection among our employees, regardless of their location.

“Those companies that made the list of Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® as well as those companies that continue to make the list are truly remarkable. Given today’s need for talent, retention of talent, and the further issues related to the pandemic, these companies have proven they are superior to market conditions.
