Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), the Midwest’s leading recycling and waste diversion services provider, has been named one of the nation’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®.
The only waste and recycling company to be named to the list, this esteemed honor recognizes LRS within the top 85 largest U.S. businesses with more than 301 employees.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work/life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. National nominees were benchmarked against every state in the U.S.
National recognition is supplementary to LRS being named one of Chicago’s 2016 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in May 2016 in the large business category (organizations exceeding 300 employees).
In early 2016, LRS substantially grew its benefits package, built a health and fitness center in its corporate headquarters, created new internal events for employee collaboration, created a Junior Executive Board for easier accessibility and increased its community outreach with respected charities to raise donations for meaningful causes. Through active participation in neighborhood parades, charity events, school visits and other community events, LRS strives to be a good corporate citizen by showcasing the passion and involvement of its most valuable asset, its employees.
