Staffing Software Provider wins National Best and Brightest AwardCHICAGO, Illinois– Automated Business Designs (ABD), developers of Ultra-Staff staffing software, was named one of the Nation’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in 2019. This prestigious honor is the third time that ABD has been recognized by the National Best and Brightest program.  The software company was also recognized as one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.

The Best and Brightest Program honored 540 national winning organizations from across the country out of 5,000 nominations. With over 20 years of experience conducting the Best and Brightest competitions, the National Association for Business Resources have identified numerous best Human Resource practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.

ABD’s nomination included details of their comprehensive benefits package, which includes 100% health care coverage for each employee paid for by ABD.  The Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plan includes health, dental, life, vision, and many other free health and well-being services.  ABD was also recognized for their innovative best practices. In 2019, the Vice President of Systems Engineering took it upon herself to organize weekly educational training sessions, inviting all team members to take a deep dive into the different products ABD offers. These sessions, “Mornings with Molly”, helps cross train all departments in the company and opens up an environment to share best practices and ideas for product enhancements.

“We are overjoyed to receive our third National Best and Brightest Award”, said Terri Roeslmeier, Staffing Software Provider Wins National Best and Brightest AwardPresident and CEO of Automated Business Designs. “We appreciate everything that our employees do for the company and want to do everything we can to ensure they are well-compensated, provided with the resources they need to be successful, and sincerely enjoy what they do every day.”

ABD’s nomination also highlighted the company’s spectacular culture, which includes FitBit® contests, a March Madness Office Pool, birthday celebrations, and any excuse to have a party. The work hard play hard attitude is a big part of the culture at ABD.  Recognizing employee achievements is also very important for the leadership team. From giving out esteemed awards to employees at the ABD client meeting, to just simply recognizing someone in an email for receiving accolades from a client, all achievements are recognized.

These are just a handful of reasons why ABD is one of the Best & Brightest Companies to Work For® in the United States.  The staffing software provider was also judged by confidential ABD employee responses. Those overwhelmingly positive responses helped ABD receive this distinguished recognition.
