As a result, our leadership team constantly looks for ways to improve our workplace environment, and we're very pleased to earn recognition from Crain's for our efforts."

The managed service provider was also included on the Best Places to Work in Chicago list in 2015-2019 and was previously recognized as a top workplace for millennials, minorities and women under 35.
