bswift Named One of Chicago's "Best and Brightest Companies To Work For®" in 2014

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - June 17, 2014) - bswift, a leader in cloud-based technology and services for employee benefits and health exchanges, today announced that it has been named one of Chicago's Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® in 2014 -- a distinction based largely on the company's dedication to its employees, its leadership in employee standards and its demonstrated best practices in Human Resources.

Companies submitted entries (consisting of answers to survey questions) that the National Association For Business Resources (NABR), an independent research firm, evaluated based on key measures in various categories, including Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Work-Life Balance; Employee Education and Development; Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Communication and Shared Vision; Recruitment, Selection and Orientation; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Community Initiatives; and Strategic Company Performance.

In its winning entry, bswift went into detail about the development opportunities and comprehensive training programs it offers its employees, the unique and frequent communications between senior leadership and team members and its strong recruitment and retention initiatives, among other areas covered in the survey.

"When we get abundant raves about working at bswift from our team members, we can count on that translating into abundant raves from our clients," said bswift's Ray Seaver, Executive Vice President responsible for Sales, Service and HR. "There is an undeniable connection between the two and because of that we constantly gather feedback on how actively our people are promoting us as an employer to friends and colleagues. By gauging our progress through tools like the Net Promoter System® and the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® survey, we can optimize our HR and management practices in ways that make bswift an engaging place to work and ultimately increases the number of clients that are actively promoting bswift," Seaver explained.

On July 21, 2014, bswift and other winners will be recognized at a special Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® symposium and awards luncheon at the Chicago Marriot in Oak Brook, IL. The winning companies also compete for 11 elite awards -- including "The Best of the Best Overall," "The Best of the Best Medium Business Overall" and "The Best of the Best Small Business Overall" -- and, new this year, is a category for employers with 50 or fewer employees. All winners will be announced at the awards program. In addition to the awards ceremony, symposium attendees can participate in interactive educational sessions on human resource best practices.
