This year, Chicago Inno is hosting their second annual, Coolest Companies Competition. This is essentially a fun challenge between different local companies to highlight the best company cultures in the Chicagoland area. An assortment of companies submitted information about what makes their company cool; Chicago Inno then selected the best companies to be nominees for the award. Grid Connect is honored to be nominated as one of the coolest companies in the area for the second year in a row.

So what makes Grid Connect so cool? The company culture includes many employee benefits, such as a weekly free lunch, an unlimited vacation policy, exciting ping-pong and bags tournaments, and more! In the nomination list, Grid Connect was quoted for another unique benefit, “We have ‘Shot Fridays,’ which includes a new shot or alcoholic drink every Friday at 2.30PM.” Grid Connect is dedicated to providing employees with the best work experience possible. Making it fun to come to work is great for keeping employees motivated and happy with their jobs.

The finalists will be selected by a panel of judges and last year’s winners at Chicago Fest, a celebration of the city’s innovators. New to this year’s award, there will be “Reader’s Choice” winners, which are publically selected winners. This means that anyone can vote for Grid Connect! Help recognize and spotlight the amazing company culture that Grid Connect has created. In order to vote, check out the link below!
