Insight Ranks #24 on Fortune’s 2019 ‘Best Workplaces in Chicago’

Positive reinforcement of employee experiences and company values aid Insight’s outstanding presence in the Chicago metro area

May 21, 2019 1:33 PM EDT

Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global systems integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, has been ranked as the No. 24 company on the 2019 Best Workplaces in Chicago list by Fortune and Great Place to Work®.

In determining the rankings of the list, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey feedback from an estimate of almost 19,000 employees working within the Chicago metro area.

Employees responded to more than 60 survey questions describing the extent in which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the survey questions are based upon what employees have to say about their experiences of trust and potential as part of their organization. The remaining 15 percent of this ranking is based on an assessment of all respondents’ experiences of innovation, company values, and leader evaluation to ensure they are consistently experienced.

“Our teammates’ positive work experience in Chicago is what allows us to deliver great experiences and value to our clients,” said Ken Lamneck, president and CEO of Insight. “The categories that we were strongest in — fairness, respect and credibility — directly translate to the values of hunger, heart and harmony that we live every day.”

Insight’s Chicago teammates play an important role in Insight’s Supply Chain Optimization solution area. They work in Insight’s Integration Lab, warehouse and distribution center to preconfigure and deploy IT assets based on clients’ exact needs, so devices are ready to go when they arrive to the end user.

According to the study, 86% of Insight’s Chicago teammates agreed that “taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work.” Insight also ranked highly in the fairness, respect and credibility categories:

  • 85% of Insight teammates said that everyone has an opportunity to get special recognition
  • 92% said people are treated fairly regardless of their age
  • 92% said they can take time off from work when they think it’s necessary
  • 89% said management trusts people to do a good job without watching over their shoulders
  • 75% said managers avoid playing favorites

“The companies featured on the 2019 Best Workplaces in Chicago list offer dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These companies create cultures that invite all employees creating a competitive edge for their businesses and helping to realize the unique potential of each individual.”

The Best Workplaces in Chicago list 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.
