cleverbridge Named to 2013 List of Top 50 Employers for Gen Y Talent in Chicago

cleverbridge, a global full-service e-commerce provider for software and SaaS companies, announces that the company has been named to Brill Street’s 2013 list of Top 50 Employers for Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago.

Now in its fifth year, the list recognizes Chicagoland companies that have created atmospheres where Gen Y can thrive, with cleverbridge listed as #43.

Chicago employers qualified for the award by employing at least 10 employees, with at least 10 percent of their workforce comprised of Gen Y. Companies were first evaluated on company offerings and employee satisfaction in six categories: professional development opportunities, benefits, environment, company reputation, and culture and perks. The final score also reflects the enthusiasm of company leadership for Gen Y and the percentage of Gen Y employees. Brill Street defines Gen Y employees as those born between 1980 and 2000.

“Gen Yers are challenging employers to adapt to their lifestyles and work habits, and these companies exemplify those characteristics, bridging generational gaps,” said Kevin Carlson, CEO, Brill Street. “This year’s list was our most competitive yet and is truly representative of the best Gen Y employers in Chicago.”

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Brill Street as one of the top employers for Gen Y talent in Chicago,” said Craig Vodnik, vice president of operations, cleverbridge. “As we look to hire the best people, no matter the generation, cleverbridge continues to attract top talent because of our open company culture, opportunities for growth and exceptional workplace benefits. The Gen Y Employer ranking solidifies the importance we place on these qualities in our workplace.”

cleverbridge was also recently named to the 2013 Lead411 Technology 200 List of the fastest growing tech companies in the United States. cleverbridge’s German office was also named #11 on the 2013 Great Place to Work list by Great Place to Work Institute, which recognizes the top 40 IT companies in Germany with exceptional workplace cultures based on a benchmark survey.
