Primera Engineers, Ltd. is proud to announce that we have been selected among the 2022 Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces. Our firm ranked 53 of 105 companies on the 100-249 employee, small company category list. This is the second year in a row that Primera was recognized as a Top Workplace.
This prestigious recognition is based on survey responses from our employees. The survey is conducted by Energage, a third-party partner on behalf of The Chicago Tribune and measures several important factors related to a healthy, empowering culture. In order to be considered for this list, organizations must have over 100 employees located in the Chicagoland area and receive exceptional feedback from over 35% of their employees explaining how the company embodies their mission and values. Primera’s place on this list emphasizes our dedication to creating a people-first, collaborative, inclusive workplace and highlights our focus on fostering meaningful relationships and connections.
“It’s the ultimate honor for us to be recognized externally for our people-first culture,” explains Primera’s President & CEO Erin Inman, PE. “We continue to invest in our robust feedback and performance review process, competitive salaries, expansion and career growth opportunities, our employee stock ownership program (ESOP), open book management that fosters transparency and trust, and flexible workspaces and policies that enable our people to work where and how they want to work,” she adds.
Primera was honored with this same award in 2021 and subsequently included in the 2022 Top Workplaces in the USA list.
