We are pleased to announce that Performance Services’ Illinois branch office was named as the #1 Best Places to Work in Illinois for 2022.

The statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees).  Performance Services participated in the medium company size category.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in Illinois;
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of Illinois; and
  • Be in business for a minimum of one year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

The Illinois team was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards in-person luncheon, coordinated by The Daily Herald Suburban Business on Wednesday, May 11th. The final rankings were announced at the event, posted on the Daily Herald Suburban Business website (, and will be published in a special commemorative section on June 26.
