Transwestern Recognized as a Top Workplace for Ninth Time

November 05, 2021

CHICAGO – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces it has been honored by The Chicago Tribune as one of the Top Workplaces in 2021 for the ninth year. Transwestern was one of 200 companies recognized across the Chicago metropolitan 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 anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization including alignment, execution and connection.

“We are humbled and grateful to have been recognized by The Chicago Tribune for Transwestern’s ongoing commitment to its team members and workplace culture,” said Greg Munson, Executive Managing Director of Transwestern’s Midwest region. “This recognition is especially meaningful as it was based on employee feedback. We are incredibly proud of our team members and the unwavering dedication they demonstrated to our clients and one another over the course of the last year.”

Transwestern has over 150 team members across Chicago. Throughout 2020 and early 2021, team members were operating under a rotational, hybrid in-office and work-from-home schedule, staying connected via video conferencing tools and virtual events. Transwestern team members have since returned to the workplace and are operating out of the firm’s downtown Chicago and Rosemont offices.

The company culture encourages creativity, embraces change and rewards the contributions of its team members. Transwestern 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 efforts in the areas of energy and sustainability; philanthropy; and diversity, equity and inclusion.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
