Chicago Tribune Names Thresholds a Winner of the Chicagoland Top Workplaces 2023 Award
Thresholds has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey. This is Thresholds’ 10th year in a row being named to the list. This year, Thresholds ranks #12 in the large companies category.
“Being on this Top Workplace list is a testament to the compassionate and caring culture that our employees create here every single day. It’s a testament to their commitment to our clients and our mission,” says Mark Ishaug, Thresholds CEO.
Thresholds employs more than 1,200 staff in Chicago and the surrounding counties in a diverse set of roles ranging from finance and administration to front line clinical social workers who provide case management and other services for people living with serious mental illnesses and substance use conditions.
“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
