Weiss Earns “Best Places to Work in Illinois” Recognition for the 10th Straight Year

Glenview, Illinois (June 11, 2021) – It’s a streak even the pandemic couldn’t stop. For the tenth consecutive year, Weiss & Company LLP has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work in Illinois” by the Daily Herald Business Ledger.

It was the tenth straight year Weiss made the list, ranking 22nd among the 30 small companies (15-99 employees) who received the honor.

“Earning recognition as one of the state’s ‘Best Places to Work’ for a full decade is truly an honor,” said Weiss managing partner Dan Fortman. “That’s especially truly in light of the challenges we all faced in working through the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a reflection of our commitment to developing and retaining our most valuable resource: Our people.”

The strength of that commitment is evident in the wide range of benefits Weiss & Co. offers its staffers, including continuing education and development, a relaxed dress code, standing work stations, flex schedules, “5 Hour Fridays” in the summer, activities and meals during the hectic tax season, and time off to support a wide range of community service initiatives.

The quality of the clients is another factor, Fortman pointed out. “It takes great clients to make any company a great place to work, and we have more than our share,” he said. But as far as he’s concerned, there’s no question that what makes Weiss a great place to work are the people who work there.

“Top talent with great chemistry – that’s what defines every great organization, he said. “And it’s been the key to our success since Day One.”

It’s been working pretty well so far. Now in their 53rd year, Weiss & Company LLP ranks among the most successful mid-sized full-service accounting firms in the Chicago area – and one of the happiest.

Best Places to Work in Illinois is promoted by the Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago, MRA-The Management Association, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce, and Best Companies Group.
