For the 15th year in a row, FONA International has been named one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies To Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

FONA was evaluated by an independent research firm which reviewed key measurements related to: compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.
In addition, companies were assessed related to their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re so excited! It’s been an honor to receive this award for 15 consecutive years. Being named one of Chicago’s Best & Brightest Companies showcases our commitment to FONA values and our dedication to our amazing employees,” said Tonya Hubbartt, vice president of human resources.
“Through the first half of 2020, the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For have demonstrated leadership and forward thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through COVID-19," said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. "As the conversation and focus has shifted, our Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions regarding race relations. In these unique times, the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For excel and share their knowledge with others."
This recognition follows several recent recognitions including FONA’s ranking as a National Best and Brightest Company to work for, National Best and Brightest in Wellness and as the fifth Small/Medium Best Workplace in Chicago by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work.
