CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- YJT Solutions, a leading, Chicago-based provider of Information Technology (IT) consulting and managed services, has been recognized as a bronze winner of the 9th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business as Employer of the Year. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world's premier awards for women executives, entrepreneurs and the organizations they run. The awards are judged each year by more than two hundred executives from around the world, and finalists were selected from more than 1,300 nominations last year. Announced as a finalist on October 30th, YJT's award was given at an annual dinner held in the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on November 9th.
In five hundred words or less, applicants were asked to describe the activities and accomplishments that had occurred in the last year that made the firm worthy of being named Employer of the Year. Based on the high average scores that were received during more than a month of preliminary judging, the independent judges agreed that YJT is worthy of international recognition and named them a Bronze Stevie Award winner.
"We are incredibly honored," said CEO Linda Bracken upon hearing the news. "I've always felt that the output of a firm is only as successful as the sum of its parts; each day we're brainstorming and trying to innovate and improve our culture to attract and retain wonderful, passionate, kind employees. We've been incredibly successful over the last eleven years, and I'm confident it's because of the great people who are behind YJT – how terrific to be recognized!"
