New York, NY May 25, 2016/PRESS RELEASE/ – Machesney Park, IL-based Field listed to Inc.’s inaugural 50 Best Workplaces, the first such measurement of American companies with up to 500 employees that deploy state-of-the-art techniques to keep their staff happy and productive. 


Working with employee engagement and culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Nebraska, Inc.’s list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and keeping the best talent. Quantum audited over 500 companies for the Best Workplaces List.


“We hear it over and over again from the fast-growing businesses we cover: The biggest challenge that any business owner faces is finding and keeping the best people. That’s why building a workplace culture that allows your staff to grow with your company is absolutely crucial,” explains Inc.’s President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “Recipients of the Inc. Best Workplaces Awards have done so in spades. They should be celebrated and emulated.”


“The entire Field Team is fired up about receiving the Inc. Best Workplace Award” stated Field President, Jim Derry. “It is gratifying that people outside of Field recognize the uniqueness and power of our culture.  Field’s culture is a competitive advantage and has fueled our 20% annual growth rate over the past 25 years, including the past 5 years on the Inc. 5000 list.  The culture is based on our shared Core Vales & Mission statement of “To have everyone how interacts with us, LOVE us.”  We strive to create an environment that allows our Team Members to thrive in their professional and personal lives while treating each other as a family.”


The 2016 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on a collection of multiple choice, scaled, and open-ended items. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. Core components of the scoring include company practices around management, employee recognition, performance communication, benefits, and other elements of the employee experience. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $2 million, in business at least three years, with full time employees count ranging between 5 and 500.
