Partnering with Best Companies Group, Crain’s Chicago Business surveyed thousands of employees at Chicago-based companies to find the best places to work. The awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the 100 best companies to work for in the Chicago area.
Here is a glimpse of what makes Liberty a Best Place to Work in Chicago.
In what specific ways does Liberty support work-life balance for its employees?
At Liberty Advisor Group, we value work-life balance. We know and respect that our employees have personal commitments and passions outside of the workplace; therefore, we allow our people to make their own schedules as long as work commitments are met. Our people are free to make their own travel schedules and manage their own time. Our employees are free to work from home when not meeting with a client or team. We offer unlimited paid-time off. We have always had a remote working policy. We have enabled every one of our employees with the right tools and technical support they need to be effective at working remotely.
Liberty has a high preponderance of armed forces veterans on staff. In what ways does this shape your company culture?
At Liberty Advisor Group, over 25% of our employees are veterans who bring valuable skills and qualities to the table. Their previous training and experience enable them to adapt quickly to our clients’ ever-changing needs and provide innovative solutions to tackle complex challenges. These individuals possess a strong work ethic and discipline, ensuring they always deliver results. Additionally, their leadership and team-building abilities make them an asset to our organization.
100 percent of your employees telecommute at least part of the time. How do you maintain camaraderie and a sense of team cohesion when not everyone is in the office at once?
At Liberty Advisor Group, we have many gatherings throughout the year including: all employee outings, team dinners, and give-back community events. Our goal is to recognize our people for their hard work and to keep them connected, engaged and happy. Every quarter, Liberty hosts, in Chicago, a fun team-building event where our people can learn, grow and build relationships. Annually, we host a destination event filled with activities such as boating and golf. This year, we hosted the event in DC. We end the year by celebrating our people and their guests with a truly memorable holiday celebration.
