Gresham Partners Named to Crain’s Best Places to Work in Chicago List
CHICAGO — Sept. 14, 2023 — Gresham Partners is pleased to announce that it has been named to the Crain’s Chicago Best Places to Work in 2023 list.
This recognition expresses Gresham’s commitment to a collaborative, work environment that prioritizes creative thinking. Gresham strives to best serve its clients through the application of industry best ideas and practices, and its inclusion in the top 50 of this year’s Crain’s list is a reflection of the firm’s hard work.
“At Gresham, culture isn’t something dictated from the top down; it’s a shared set of beliefs and behaviors that define us as a community,” said Ted Neild, Gresham Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. “We embrace the high expectations of the financial industry which is characterized by hard work and long hours but it’s how we do it. Gresham is conscious of the symbiotic relationship between work and personal life. We are aware that work bleeds into our personal lives – and sometimes our personal lives bleeds into work. We welcome this and promote balance by creating a flexible work environment, considering the needs of the whole person. With our team, we worry more about an erosion of our culture as we have a high degree of trust with our people that we will get our work done. If you hire great people and have high expectations and alignment, productivity takes care of itself.”
The methodology for inclusion is based on the results of two surveys. A representative from each company completes the first survey, providing details on hiring practices, benefits, and compensation. After that, a second survey is sent to all Chicago-area Gresham employees via email to gather their feedback and personal experiences.
Gresham Partners will be honored at the Best Places to Work event on September 13, 2023. This reception recognizes the top 100 Best Places to Work in Chicago and will feature a live announcement of the final rankings for the 2023 Best Places to Work in Chicago.
The full Best Places to Work feature, including details about Gresham Partners, will be published in the Crain’s Chicago September 18, 2023, issue.
