CHICAGO – Tasty Catering was recently named as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Illinois in the small- to-medium category (25 to 249 employees). This is the sixth consecutive year that Tasty Catering has received this honor and placed in the top five companies. Selection is based on a two-part evaluation conducted by Best Companies group. The judging involved an evaluation of company workplace policies, practices, and demographics, as well as a survey of employees to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
Tom Walter, Tasty Catering’s Co-Founder and Chief Culture Officer accepted the award on behalf of the Tasty Catering Team. “It’s truly an honor for our company to be recognized with the best of the best, but even more humbling is knowing that our employees enjoy and look forward to coming to work each day.” Tasty Catering was competing with 31 other well-deserving candidates in the small/medium size category for this award. Additionally, several Tasty Catering clients were also competing in both the small/medium and large company categories, including: Radio Flyer, J.C. Restoration, ATI Physical Therapy, Balasa Dinverno Foltz, Corbett, Duncan & Hubly, Paylocity, Assurance Agency, and Skender Construction.
