March 5, 2020

Bold Insight has been named one of Crain’s 2020 Best Places to Work in Chicago. The full Best Places to Work in Chicago ranking – plus a breakdown of the rankings based on company size – will be announced at a live event on April 17 and printed in the April 20 issue of Crain’s and online for subscribers at

“We are honored to be recognized as a Best Places to Work in Chicago finalist,” said Yvette Granger, Partner at Bold Insight. “When we founded the company, our goal was to make Bold Insight a place that would evolve with employees; this is reflected in everything from our unique benefits program and flexible schedules to the decision to build out two Chicagoland-based offices that were designed with the employee experience in mind. We prioritize the health, career goals, and overall satisfaction of our team, always seeking employee input to continuously improve. The unsurprising reality is this approach results in more satisfied clients as well.”

In partnership with Best Companies Group, Crain’s surveyed thousands of employees on the types of working conditions, benefits, and corporate culture that make a company a great place to work. The awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the 100 best companies to work for in Chicago.

Winners were determined by the results of a weighted survey of employees and employers, conducted by Crain’s in partnership with Best Companies Group.

To be considered for participation, companies had to:
• Be a publicly or privately held business
• Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business, or government entity
• Have a facility in the Chicago area (including the counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake in Illinois, Lake in Indiana, McHenry or Will)
• Have a minimum of 25 full-time or part-time employees working in Chicago
• Have been in business a minimum of one year

Determining the Best Places to Work in Chicago involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the best companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and analyzed the data and used its expertise to determine the final ranking.

Bold Insight will be honored at the 2020 Best Places to Work in Chicago awards event on Friday, April 17 at the Hilton Chicago. Event details can be found here.
