Comcast was recently named one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
“Comcast is thrilled to be named one of the 2017 Best Places to work in Illinois,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president and market leader. “Providing a positive employee experience is a top priority at Comcast. A big part of what makes Comcast a great place to work is our people, so I am proud to share this award with all of our employees.”
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2017 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 29 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 25 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 21 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). Comcast has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois In the large company category.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
