Sevan Named One of Best Places to Work in Illinois (BPTWI) Two Years in a Row!
Downers Grove, IL – Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, LLC (Sevan) has been named one of the top 25 Best Places to Work in Illinois with 100-499 employees. This is the second year in a row that Sevan has been recognized in the “Best Places to Work” awards program.
“We’re delighted that our Illinois team members have helped us achieve this honor,” says Jim Evans, President of Sevan. “Although we have a national footprint of 350+ team members located across 36 states, one of our largest contingents is right here in Illinois. We have approximately 70 people in our Downers Grove headquarters and a number of folks who work out of home offices throughout Illinois.” Evans continues: “This recognition further validates our philosophy of putting employees first. We know that if we take care of them, they’ll take care of our wonderful clients.”
Whether it’s covering the cost for all travel expenses so team members of Sevan Multi-Site Solutions can run in the Army Ten Miler for Fisher House Foundation or holding our company meeting for over 300 employees this past year on a cruise ship to the Bahamas –Sevan takes pride in supporting our local communities while also encouraging our team members to have fun! We recently launched The Sevan Charitable Foundation with our first two major contributions of $25,000 each to Ronald McDonald House Charities and The Fisher House Foundation. The Sevan Charitable Foundation also matches any donations team members make to their favorite causes. In addition, we provide a paid Charitable Day Off each year so team members can lend a hand to food drives, toy drives, blood drives and more, boosting morale while also increasing our community involvement within the cities we live and work in.
We’ve also been recognized by our employees as a Great Place to Work® for five years in a row and one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility. These benefits combined with Sevan’s “employee-first” attitude have also resulted in Sevan being nationally recognized by our team members for offering great insurance and educational benefits. We like to instill a healthy work-life balance by providing unlimited Paid Time Off to our team and flexible work schedules. We are driven to create our office space as an extension of our fun nature – so you can often find the President and CEO challenging our employees to daily games of ping-pong. Our office offers unlimited refreshments, daily fruit basket delivery, and lots of other little amenities at our headquarters that create a positive environment for our team.
The 2018 Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony will be held May 17.
