CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwired – Jun 14, 2013) – GoHealthInsurance, the leading online exchange for individuals and families to compare health insurance quotes, was recently named one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For™ by the National Association for Business Resources. Nominated for the second consecutive year, GoHealth was nominated for its innovative strategies and contributions to the consumer technology space.
The NABR selected 101 Chicago based companies that represent the most innovative human resource programs to date. An independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories such as compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee enrichment, engagement and retention and work-life balance.
“We’re thrilled to be considered one of the best and brightest companies in Chicago for the second year in a row,” said Brandon Cruz, President of GoHealth. “We’re honored and humbled to be recognized among a list of outstanding companies seeking to innovate and make a difference.”
GoHealth offers some of the best perks in the business, including flex Fridays, a lax dress code, unlimited paid vacation, health insurance benefits and a sizeable discount for the most sought-after gym in the city. GoHealth also holds several company-sponsored events over the year including major league baseball games, boat excursions on the Great Lakes, and more.
USA Today recently featured GoHealth in an article about outstanding work environments and praised them for their lax dress code and unlimited vacation policy. The thought behind these benefits? “You should be as productive as possible. And we’ve found that when people are comfortable, they’re more productive,” said Michael Mahoney, Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing at GoHealth.
The company, which operates GoHealthInsurance.com, is growing at a rapid pace and plans to nearly double in size and create 250 jobs in Chicago this year. To find out more information about careers, benefits and current open positions at GoHealth visit http://www.gohealthinsurance.com/careers/.
