Best and Brightest in the Nation for the 2nd Year in a Row

MX has once again been recognized by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in the Nation! It’s the second year in a row that our B2B agency has received this national distinction, and the eighth consecutive year being recognized locally as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in Chicago. The honor recognizes organizations that demonstrate exceptional human resource practices and an impressive commitment to their employees.

“We are humbled that feedback from our employees allowed us to receive this award for the second year in a row,” said Lisa Loerzel, director of talent acquisition at MX. “I believe it is a testament to our MX community’s collaboration and commitment to impactful client work. We have been investing in our employee development programs and this award signifies that our staff know their contributions and personal growth matters.”

This year there were 3,400 nominations for this Best and Brightest program. The national winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm that reviewed a number of key measures such as compensation, benefits, employee development, diversity, recognition and retention, and work-life balance, relative to other nationally recognized winners. A unique aspect of the program is its assessment procedure, which provides employees with a third-party, anonymous survey to evaluate their employers and measure the authentic employee experience.

“Those companies that made the list of Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® as well as those companies that continue to make the list are truly remarkable,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO of NABR and the Best and Brightest programs. “Given today’s need for talent, retention of talent, and the further issues related to the pandemic, these companies have proven they are superior to market conditions. They are elite thinkers, and this honor demonstrates their commitment to excellence.”


“This honor is a testament to our ongoing efforts to nurture an enriching workplace culture,” said Tony Riley, president and CEO of MX. “We strive for a balance between professionalism and camaraderie, where MXers feel both challenged and rewarded. This accolade is theirs, as they are the ones making us one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. Their enduring commitment and collaborative efforts keep us pushing boundaries, challenging the norm, and realizing a more dynamic future.”

We look forward to continuing to live out our values every day at MX. We are committed to making a positive impact for our partners, our clients, our people and the communities we call home.
