Fortune Magazine Honors Nielsen as a Best Workplace in Chicago

This year, our associates named us as one of Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces in Chicago. Nielsen was ranked #18. This is the fifth ranking for Nielsen by Fortune in the past 12 months, with the company previously ranking on the lists for best workplaces for diversity, best workplaces in Texas and best employers for Millennials and Professional Services.

Chicago is Nielsen’s birthplace, where founder Arthur C. Nielsen first started the company doing market research and surveys in 1923. Today, we’ve grown into a global performance management company that provides a comprehensive understanding of what consumers watch and buy. Around the world, our associates deliver their best work in a fast-paced, challenging environment, and we focus on creating an employee experience to nurture them, encourage innovation and grow personally and professionally. To provide more opportunities for collaboration and teamwork in the Chicago area, we are moving our associates into a single hub in the city’s downtown, with the latest office amenities.

“I’m inspired every day by our associates’ smart ideas, collaborative spirit and dedication to our clients. We’re committed to making sure that our associates look forward to coming to work each day, being with their colleagues and delivering insights to help our clients grow and thrive,” said Chris Morley, President, U.S. FMCG and Retail, Nielsen.

This Fortune award honors companies that go above and beyond to give employees work-life balance without sacrificing their sense of progress, agency or accomplishment. Based on about 870 anonymous survey responses, 85% of Nielsen’s employees feel that their workplace is great.
