Sikich Recognized By Washington Post and Fortune Magazine With Two Top Workplace Awards

CHICAGO – June 20, 2023 – Professional services company Sikich has earned two prestigious regional top workplace awards: 2023 Washington Post Top Workplace and Best Workplaces in Chicago in 2023 (awarded by Fortune magazine). Both awards are based solely on employee feedback through anonymous surveys that measure several aspects of workplace culture and employee experience. Earlier this year, Sikich earned the Great Place to Work designation, a national certification based on culture, employee experience and leadership, for the third consecutive year.

“To be continually recognized as a standout workplace, especially amidst an evolving workplace landscape, is a reflection of the incredibly talented and committed team members at Sikich,” said Sikich CEO Chris Geier. “There are numerous reasons why Sikich is a great place to work, but at our core is a shared unity of purpose. Each of our more than 1,600 team members across the globe enthusiastically take smart and intentional action to nurture our culture and ensure that our clients are served with the best possible innovations and services.”

Survey feedback from employees is the sole basis for these two awards, both administered through globally recognized third-party partners:

  • Best Workplaces in Chicago (awarded by Fortune magazine) collects nearly 50,000 responses from employees at eligible companies. Sikich is one of only 100 companies headquartered in the Chicago area to receive the distinction, which stems from the Great Place to Work certification the company received earlier this year that quantifies the current state of workplace culture.
  • Washington Post Top Workplace measures drivers of workplace culture such as inclusion, connection and value alignment. The regional designation is administered by Energage, the Washington Post research partner that named Cotton, a Sikich company, a national top workplace earlier this year. This is the fourth consecutive year the company has been honored with this distinction.

Notably, all employee feedback was gathered in 2022 amidst a significant growth year for Sikich, including the completion of five acquisitions. To learn more about what makes Sikich a great place to work, read the 2022 Annual Report: Growth Without Boundaries.
