CHICAGO, IL - Burwood Group has been named one of the Top 50 Gen Y Employers in Chicago for the third year. Since 2009, Brill Street has been ranking the top employers in Chicago for Gen Y emerging talent. Companies are evaluated on professional development opportunities, benefits, environment, company reputation and culture, perks offered and the enthusiasm of company leadership and Gen Y employees. 

Why is Gen Y important at Burwood Group? Jim Hart, Burwood Group President says, “Gen Y is very in tune with the role of technology in today’s world. It keeps us fresh as a company and provides us with a unique perspective that we couldn’t get anywhere else.”.”

The environment at Burwood Group is open and friendly. “People are very welcoming and the collaborative environment allows you to share ideas with everyone,” said Jennifer Pasieka, Office Manager. As the president of Burwood Group, Hart ensures that people feel welcome. He encourages employees to come to him, or any member of the leadership team, with new and innovative ideas. “We are an ownership culture,” he shares.

With ownership, comes the ability to manage your career and the leadership team strives to create an entrepreneurial culture. “Burwood hires proactive individuals who are deeply invested in their work as well as their career development, and the management team at Burwood really supports and encourages that behavior,” said Lindsey Schwartz, HR Associate.

Community service is also important at Burwood Group. Through work with the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago and the Illinois Technology Foundation, Burwood employees are able to help in underserved communities. “I think Gen Y is more globally aware, and possesses more social awareness,” says Hart of Gen Y.

Burwood is committed to creating not only a positive work environment for their employees, but also to having a positive impact on the Chicago community.
