The Champion for Young Professionals award recognizes an organization with superior model leadership and achievements in attracting and retaining talented young professionals.
In 2017 this award was presented to Northwestern Mutual-Chicago/Oak Brook, an organization that strongly encourages both formal and informal mentoring of its professionals. They have received the National Team award for 6 years for its recruits and their productivity, and its employee retention rate is THREE times the industry average. It is no surprise they have been honored with Crain’s Best Workplace award for the past 6 years.
We recently asked Northwestern Mutual-Chicago/Oak Brook what the award meant to them: “We were honored to receive this award because it speaks to our core mission to attract and develop highly motivated individuals committed to building a financial services practice,” said Chad M. McQuade, J.D., CLU® managing director. “We are proud of the culture in which our team members understand their work is meaningful, and they can make an impact in their clients’ lives and their communities,” he added.
