Tasty Catering has once again been named Best Place to Work in Illinois for 2009. Best Places to Work ranks companies under two divisions: medium-sized companies (15-249 employees) and large-sized companies (250 or more employees). Boasting 150 seasonal, part-time, and full-time employees, this is the second year in a row Tasty Catering has been named number one under the medium-sized companies. Criteria involved in the selection process are conducted through a series of surveys. First, the employer must fill out a benefits and policies questionnaire, detailing company policies, practices, and demographics. After the employer survey follows an employee engagement and satisfaction survey.
The Best Companies Group surveys up to 400 randomly chosen employees per company. In Tasty’s case, all employees were surveyed. The statewide competition is co-sponsored by The Business Ledger, The Illinois State Chamber of Commerce, the Human Resource Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC) the Illinois Chapter of the Society of Human Resource Managers, and the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago.
