We are honored to announce BFO has been named one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in 2020! The program celebrates companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach and an impressive commitment to their employees, and we couldn’t be happier to mingle with the other Best & Brightest companies named to the list.
In This Together
The “new normal” that 2020 has brought to all of us has been challenging in countless ways – too many to name! But through it all, our BFO team came together, and for that, this award is for all of them.
We would like to thank our BFO team for their hard work and dedication to not only BFO, but to our clients and to each other – especially during these uncertain times.
Winning this distinguished award allows us to showcase what we value most – our people. So, we thought it would be fun to hear from a few of our team members who helped us achieve this esteemed award.
Can you share with us your favorite thing about working for BFO?
“We truly are a communal company and make the most important decisions as a group. I believe that because of this, we support those decisions and each other to a higher degree than we otherwise would.”Adam Woodburn
“Our founders truly treat everyone like family. We’re not just cogs in a machine. We’re people.”Curtiss Gulash
“I love how flexible my schedule is working for BFO. If I need to work from home it’s not a problem; there is a trust that you don’t find with any company I’ve worked for before. When we had to move to fully remote, it was a fairly smooth transition since a lot of our team is already remote.”Rachel Loutos
“The thing I love the most about working with BFO is how my direct managers truly value my opinions and expertise. Client recommendations are generally a collaboration as we are all part of the same team with different expertise in different areas. I do not experience the “boss knows best” mentality. I like to say that we are all on the same ship with a destination of winning for our clients together. Everyone is treated as an equal regardless of their title.”Sharon Crudgington
Running and growing a people-first organization can be tough and with the right team behind you, anything is possible. Way to go team!
