National Association for Business Resources Names GoHealth as One of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jul 9, 2012) - The number of Chicago-based technology companies has grown exponentially in the past few years, drawing attention to the city as an emerging epicenter of innovation and commerce.

One of those tech firms, GoHealth, was recently named as one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2012 by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

"I see Chicago emerging as a primary technology hub in the next few years just based on the number of new tech jobs. At GoHealth, we're trying to hire as many developers, architects and innovative people as we can," said Brandon Cruz, President of GoHealth. "We know how much great talent there is in Chicago and we're very proud to be recognized as a great place to work."

The NABR selected 101 companies that represent the most innovative human resource programs to date. An independent research firm evaluates each company's entry based on key measures in various categories such as compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee enrichment, engagement and retention and work-life balance.

Why was GoHealth named as one of the best in Chicago? The health insurance technology outfit offers some of the best perks in town including unlimited paid vacation, flex Fridays, health insurance benefits and a big discount for the fanciest gym in the city. If that wasn't enough, GoHealth holds several company-sponsored events over the year including Cubs games, boat trips on Lake Michigan and more.

The Chicago Tribune named GoHealth as one of the top workplaces last year and recently wrote a piece about GoHealth's office space in River North, calling it a "funky office" to help recruit energetic and creative minds.

The company, which operates, is growing at a rapid pace and is actively hiring for a number of different positions, including Web Developers, Software Engineers, Insurance Agents and more. To find out more information about careers, benefits and current open positions at GoHealth visit
