April 5, 2019 —  Orases earns a spot on the 2018 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation List by the National Association for Business Resources.

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment that lead to increased productivity and financial performance. This competition scores potential winners based on regional data of company performance and a set standard across the nation. This national program celebrates those companies that are making better business, creating richer lives and building a stronger community as a whole.

Generous PTO/Holidays, flexible hours/work-from-home, newly renovated office space with ergonomic options, 401K, Health Insurance, access to a company beach house, training opportunities, and giving back initiatives incorporated into company culture are a few top perks that placed Orases as one of the Best Places to Work.

Other contributing factors included our 85% revenue increase from 2016-2018 and our 51% employee growth from 2016-2018.

“Profitability and stability is essential for businesses in today’s economic climate. Companies that recognize that their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power. Our 2018 winners create their human resource standards to ensure employee satisfaction and they set standards for every business to aspire toward,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, National Association for Business Resources. “We are proud to honor this year’s winners and can’t wait to celebrate them in September.”

Orases will be recognized by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) along with 511 other companies that excel at employee relations, use innovation to motivate employees, implement creative compensation programs and more will be recognized by National Association for Business Resources (NABR) at the National Best and Brightest Summit – Illuminate 2019 symposium and awards gala on September 15-17, at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, located at 1 W Wacker Drive, in Chicago, IL.
