DEERFIELD, Ill., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has listed Takeda among Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. Named for the second consecutive year, Takeda was recognized for excelling at employee relations, using innovation to motivate employees and implementing creative compensation programs.

"Takeda remains committed to its people and creating a diverse workplace that attracts, retains and develops talent from all backgrounds," said Laurene Giagnorio, senior vice president of human resources and administration. "We're honored to receive this recognition for the second consecutive year and it is a testament to Takeda's commitment to employees so we can focus on our mission of striving towards better health for people worldwide through leading innovation in medicine."

This year's NABR winners were recognized for practicing innovative strategies and representing best practices in human resources. An independent research firm evaluated each company's entry based on key measures in various categories such as compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee education and development, engagement and retention and work-life balance.

Takeda is able to build a unique corporate culture by providing a work environment that fosters career growth, while also enabling its talented employees to balance their work and personal lives. Takeda offers impressive work/life amenities and ongoing professional development opportunities, such as compressed workweeks, job-share programs, adoption assistance, tuition reimbursement and an award winning onsite child care facility, among many others.

Takeda supports teams at its Deerfield campus by providing a state-of-the-art work environment featuring natural-light-filled, environmentally friendly, LEED-certified offices. The Deerfield campus also features employee-friendly amenities including a professionally staffed indoor fitness center, outdoor walking and running trails, and an onsite cafeteria serving an international menu using fresh, locally sourced produce.

Takeda was also named one of Chicago Tribune's 2012 Top 100 workplaces based on the company's strong workplace values and ethics, competitive benefits package, extensive employee training opportunities, confidence in leadership and other positive workplace attributes. In addition, Takeda won the 2012 Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility. The Sloan Awards are part of When Work Works, a research-based initiative by the Chicago Chamber of Commerce designed to highlight how flexible workplaces can yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and at home.
