- Company also named to the 2021 Best Places to Work in Chicago list by Crain’s Chicago Business -
Horizon Therapeutics plc (Nasdaq: HZNP) announced today that it has been named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® in the United States. This is Horizon’s first time being included on the list.
“We are thrilled to be named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the first time,” said Tim Walbert, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Horizon. “Horizon has always worked to create an inclusive work environment where employees feel supported every day, but during this year of crisis, we made employee wellbeing a top priority. Along with best-in-class health benefits, we have a dynamic work culture that includes a robust paid parental leave, adoption assistance, educational support, a year-end shutdown and flexible working arrangements that cater to all employee needs.”
To determine the 2021 list, Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact. Particular attention was paid to how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status and other characteristics to ensure that the company is creating a great workplace for all.
Horizon was also named to Crain’s Chicago Business’ 2021 Best Places to Work in Chicago for the sixth consecutive year.
“Horizon goes to incredible lengths to impact communities around the globe where we live and work, which is why we are always honored to be named one of the Best Places to Work in Chicago, home to our U.S. headquarters,” said Walbert. “From developing a citywide science camp and fair alongside the Chicago Cubs, to supporting community organizations focused on racial equity, we are purposeful in our giving and it is at the core of who we are.”
In partnership with Best Companies Group, Crain’s surveyed thousands of employees on the types of working conditions, benefits and corporate culture that make a company a great place to work. The awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the 100 best companies to work for in the Chicago area.
