Chicago, IL - Stratosphere Networks, a Chicago-based IT managed service provider, was recently selected as one of Crain's Best Places to Work 2015. The company was named number five on the Best Workplace for Millennials list. The annual list was released on April 6, 2015 and was decided based on surveys conducted the previous year.
Buck Consultants, a global human resources consulting firm, developed two surveys, one for the company and one for its employees. This year, 100 companies throughout the Chicagoland area participated in both surveys. The surveys cover everything from quantitative topics such as pay, promotions and health care, to qualitative topics such as vacation time, management and career development. To be included in the millennial rankings, employees identifying as 30 years old or younger needed to make up at least 25 percent of the company's local employee population.
Stratosphere Networks ranked high on this year's list for a number of reasons. The company pays for training and certification programs for its employees and last year alone, 28 people were certified in new skills. Stratosphere Networks offers a high level of flexibility. All employees have the capability to work from home with remote access technology and their own VPN phones. Stratosphere Networks also thrives because of its emphasis on collaboration and their state-of-the-art facility, including a $2 million Network Operations Center.
"We're thrilled be named one of Crain's Best Places to Work 2015," Steve Melchiorre, CEO of Stratosphere Networks, said. "We've been fortunate enough to win many awards throughout the years, but this one is especially meaningful as it was decided by our own employees. We love the collaborative environment we've created at Stratosphere Networks and try to regularly recognize our employees for the great work they do. We're glad our team, as well as the one at Crain's, agrees that our company is a great place to work."
Stratosphere Networks has grown exponentially over the past few years and is always looking for new employees to add to its team. For information on how to work for one of the best workplaces for millennials, visit https://www.stratospherenetworks.com/careers/.
