Sikich Named One of "Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" by The National Association for Business Resources

AURORA, IL--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - For the sixth consecutive year, Sikich LLP, a public accounting and business advisory firm (, has been recognized as one of "Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For."

The selection of the 2011 winning companies is a result of an independent research firm that evaluates each company's entry in the following categories: communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, small business, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.

"This year's winners epitomize what it means to be committed to employees. Our winners excelled at employee relations, used innovation to motivate employees, implemented creative compensation programs and more. They serve as a standard for other companies to work toward," said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president. "We are proud to honor this year's 101 winners."

"It is with great honor that we can say we are a 'best and brightest' company for six years in a row. Because we believe our people are our greatest asset, we are dedicated to recruiting, training and retaining the top talent in our industry," said Janel O'Connor, Director of Human Capital for Sikich LLP. "Our employees love the firm's positive, recognition focused environment -- an environment that fosters learning, creativity, and the passion for growth," she concluded.

All 101 winners will be honored during an awards luncheon on Mon., Aug. 1, 2011 at the Chicago Oak Brook Marriott, and 11 elite winners will be revealed. Judy Hsu from ABC 7 Chicago News and Pat Cassidy from WBBM News Radio will emcee the awards ceremony.
