Transwestern Recognized as a Top Workplace in Chicagoland for the 11th Time

November 08, 2023

CHICAGO – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) has been named one of the Top Workplaces in 2023 by The Chicago Tribune for the 11th year. Transwestern was ranked 25th out of 66 midsized companies in the Chicago area.

The Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces program is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential poll uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution and connection.

“We are honored to have once again been recognized by The Chicago Tribune for Transwestern’s ongoing commitment to its team members and workplace culture,” said Greg Munson, President of TRS. “The Chicago office has seen a lot of growth this year with the acquisition of MB Real Estate, and we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest level of trust with both our new and long-standing team members alike.”

Transwestern’s workplace culture encourages creativity, embraces change and rewards the contributions of its team members. The company offers its team members a full healthcare and benefits package; vacation time plus two personal paid days off; eight hours of paid time off for community service; paid parental leave; wellness initiatives; formal training and mentorship; and reimbursement for skills development, certifications, and memberships. Additionally, the company reinforces personal and corporate social responsibility through integrated national energy and sustainability efforts, philanthropy, and diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
