Wintrust named one of Chicago’s Top Workplaces in 2022 by the Chicago Tribune

ROSEMONT, Ill., Feb. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Chicago Tribune has named Wintrust Financial Corporation a Top Workplace in Chicago for the ninth year in a row. Results are based entirely on an anonymous employee survey conducted by a third party. The survey measured 15 drivers of engaged work cultures, including connection, alignment, and execution. This year, Wintrust ranked 18th on the list of larger organizations, which are defined as having over 1,000 employees locally.

We value employee feedback and consider it to be critical to our success. “A company is only as good as its employees,” said Norah Larke, EVP & Chief HR Officer at Wintrust. “We’re lucky to employ entrepreneurial, customer-focused, and team-oriented people who approach each day intent on making an impact and providing a truly distinctive community banking experience.”

Wintrust provides a total rewards package that includes competitive pay and bonus opportunities, generous benefits, extensive development and training, and an inclusive, empowering culture.

“As a company, we want to make sure every person who works for us feels comfortable and supported,” says Ed Wehmer, Founder and CEO of Wintrust. “We’ve always put a real emphasis on maintaining an inclusive culture and that means prioritizing open communication and opportunities for our team members to grow, both professionally and personally.”
