Entara was named one of Chicago’s 2019 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR). The award strives to recognize and honor companies displaying the most innovative and thoughtful human resource practices across the country.
Going 3 Years Strong
This is the third consecutive year that Entara (formerly YJT Solutions) has received this recognition because of its commitment to enhance employee engagement. The leaders at Entara focus on energizing and ‘enriching’ the lives of their employees, encouraging their team to grow in line with the company.
“Everything that happens within an organization happens because of its people, and Entara recognizes that. This award is a credit to the dedication of our employees and to the success of our company. Our team’s integrity will enable our ongoing evolution into the best place to have a technology infrastructure career in Chicago!”
-Linda Maclachlan, Founder and CEO of Entara
Supporting Our Team and Cultivating Friendships
In addition to Entara’s track record for internal promotion and performance incentives, it offers outstanding benefits and a career development program, all of which contributed to the company’s recognition as one of the Best and Brightest employers in the city. Entara arranges company-wide outings every three months for people to get out of the office and have fun with their coworkers and families. Office-sponsored lunches are catered every Monday to help make the transition back into the work week a little less stressful. The office also hosts a weekly happy hour, known as ‘Fridays @ 4,’ that lets its hard-working team relax and start the weekend on a positive note.
