Staffing Software provider wins prestigious company culture award.

CHICAGO, 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 2018! This prestigious honor is now the second 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, and 2018.

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition is presented by the National Association for Business Resources and honors companies with exceptional human resource practices and employee engagement. The program seeks to recognize innovative, trend-setting organizations with a deep commitment to employee fulfillment. Organizations must complete a rigorous application detailing a vibrant company culture to qualify for the award. 

Molly Nessinger, Vice President of Systems Engineering, commented, “We are a company that doesn’t put titles on business cards.  We work together, which is exemplified in our teamwork, camaraderie, and customer service.   This is something that you don’t see in all companies, which is a huge differentiator for ABD and why we are the ‘Best and Brightest!”

ABD’s nomination included details of their comprehensive benefits package, exceptional health and wellness program, and spectacular company culture. For example, ABD employees enjoy complimentary gym memberships, a kitchen stocked with healthy snacks, team learning sessions, office outings, and community service projects.  ABD also has a new state-of-the art office space that promotes collaboration and offers high-tech features, such as standing desks and dry-erase board walls, to name a few.  These are just a handful of reasons why ABD is one of the Best & Brightest Companies to Work For® in the United States.

“We are proud and honored to receive this award”, said Terri Roeslmeier, President and CEO of Automated Business Designs.  “Our employee’s make ABD the company it is.  We are privileged to have the best in the industry and want to do everything we can to ensure they are happy, fulfilled, challenged, and well-compensated.”

The staffing software provider was also judged by confidential ABD employee responses. Those overwhelmingly positive responses helped ABD receive this distinguished recognition. ABD received a particularly high score in the following categories: employee enrichment, engagement, and retention; employee education and development; employee achievement and recognition; and compensation, benefits, and employee solutions.
