The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work. Great Place to Work (GPTW) is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.
The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at CTPF. The survey showed that 81% of employees said it’s a great place to work compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. Approximately 84% of employees responded that they are made to feel welcome when joining the company, and that management is honest and ethical in its business practices.
“In a service organization like ours, we need the right people and teams in place to succeed, and attracting and retaining those people is critically important. This is why we consider the employee experience a top priority every day,” said Executive Director Carlton W. Lenoir, Sr. “We are honored to be named a Great Place to Work and remain committed to fostering a work environment in which our employees can learn, thrive, and build fulfilling careers.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
