Recently, Crain’s Chicago Business featured the Best Workplaces for Women for 2012. On this list was Tandem HR, a human resources outsourcing company based in Oak Brook, who received the honor of being the 8th top workplace for women.
Bruce Leon, chief executive officer of Tandem HR says, “While this award came as a pleasant surprise, it’s definitely not shocking. I come from a household with four daughters and I know that has prepared me greatly for creating a company where women, along with everyone else, feel truly valued. I’m very proud of all of our employees and I’m glad to have such an amazing group to work with.”
What makes Tandem an exceptional place to work?
At Tandem, women make up 75 percent of managers at the company. Tandem has been a consistently high performing company with recognition in INC 5000 and Crain’s Fast Fifty (No. 36 in 2012). To help managers perform at a high level, all are offered monthly coaching services. In these sessions discussions range from personal and career challenges with their coach who helps these key team members with perspective and guidance.
Tandem also offers employees the option of having flexible work schedules so that they can work from home or out of the office as needed. The company makes providing employees with the right technology (i.e. iPhones, iPads, Laptops, etc.) to work outside of the office a top priority.
Tandem HR regularly consults with its clients regarding best practices. To speak with Tandem HR regarding current human resources initiatives, call (630) 928-0510 or visit www.TandemHR.com.
