Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored Maven Wave as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces™ in Chicago, adding to a string of recent award wins for the Google Cloud Premier Partner. The ranking, which is based on employees’ experiences, considered more than 11,000 employee surveys from companies across the Windy City. Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employees’ pride in their organizations’ community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Maven Wave took the #21 spot on the Small and Medium Companies list.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of Chicago’s Best Workplaces. Our talent is unmistakably the beating heart in this rapidly growing company. At Maven Wave, we foster a culture of exceptionally strong individuals who push their learning limits every day while working on our clients’ most critical and advanced technology initiatives,” says Jeff Lee, Partner and Co-founder of Maven Wave.
Maven Wave’s collaborative, inclusive, and close-knit culture allows the company to hire and retain the best and brightest talent. An example of how the company fosters this culture is through an initiative called “First Fridays,” an event that allows all employees to get together for a different social, charitable, or athletic event each month. This allows Maven Wave to maintain its culture, even as the company continues to rapidly grow.
“Chicago has one of the largest metropolitan economies in the United States. It plays a significant economic role not just domestically, but globally,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “As one of our nation’s economic main staples, the city of Chicago can be proud that organizations like Maven Wave are building this country’s economy by creating great places to work for all.”
The Best Workplaces in Chicago is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Over the past eight months, Maven Wave was also certified as a Great Place to Work, named one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For™ in the United States, included in Clutch’s lists of top IT Service and Consulting Firms and Top Cloud Computing Consultants, and named in Consulting magazine’s Fastest Growing Firms list.
