Buffalo Grove, IL, April 28, 2021 – BCD International, the global leader in video data infrastructure solutions, has been named as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Illinois, marking the third straight year BCD has been recognized for this award. The awards program began in 2006 and is sponsored by HR Source and promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger.
“We are truly honored to be accepting this award for our third consecutive year. COVID-19 made it a challenging year for everyone, but we were inspired to do the right thing and prioritized keeping everyone safe,” said BCD’s Director of Human Resources Susan Komarchuk. “Our employees commitment, focus and engagement has allowed us to continue to strengthen our culture and continue to be a great place to work.”
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2021 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 35 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 22 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 12 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). BCD International has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois in the small employer category.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated 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 an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
BCD will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards virtual ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on Thursday, May 13.
