Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group Named the #1 Large Company Top Workplace in Chicago by the Chicago Tribune
Chicago real estate brokerage, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group has been named the #1 Top Workplace in Chicago for 2019 by The Chicago Tribune. Executives Diane Glass, Mark Pasquesi and Joe Stacy attended the Top Workplaces event at the United Club at Soldier Field on November 7th where the award winners across a number of categories were announced. In the Large Company category, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices ranked #1. The recognition speaks to the firm’s exceptional real estate culture, management team and agent support.
Being named the #1 Top Workplace in Chicago in the Large Company category by the Chicago Tribune is the latest jewel in the crown of an exceptional year. The company was also one of the Chicago Tribune’s Businesses to Know, Crain’s named more than 30 BHHS brokers and the firm’s general counsel on their Most Notable lists, and Chicago Magazine’s first top real estate issue included more than 60 BHHS agents and teams.
“We are incredibly honored to be ranked the #1 Top Workplace for 2019 out of 150 companies in the Chicago metro area,” said Diane Glass, Chief Operating Officer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group. “It is immensely gratifying that our agents and employees feel a sense of belonging and family here. In hundreds of surveys, they detailed the support and collaboration that exists among our agents, managers and staff. And that represents a gold standard for real estate that is invaluable in serving our clients.”
“We recognize the importance of a strong, positive culture to an organization’s health and success and are very pleased to receive this award as a great indicator that we’re on the right path,” added Mark Pasquesi, the firm’s president of brokerage. “In fact, one of our Wildly Important Goals is to foster a joyful workplace. As part of our ongoing effort to create better real estate, we’ve created a People and Culture Department to focus on this very important facet of our work lives.”
“We congratulate each and every BHHS agent and employee on receiving this recognition.” added Joe Stacy, Senior Vice President and General Sales Manager. “This Chicago-based award is a perfect complement to the awards given to our parent company and global network, and to the many awards given to our agents and teams.”
Parent company HomeServices of America was recognized by RIS Media as the number one brokerage in the US, based on 2018 transaction sides, and the BHHS global network has repeatedly garnered Harris Poll and J.D. Power awards.
The Top Workplace list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, connection, and more.
