President, Enova International Inc.
I’m excited to share that Enova has been selected as the top employer of Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago by Brill Street + Company in its 2012 Top 50 Employers for Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago. Enova joins the ranks of such admired companies as Google and Morningstar which have won top ranking in the past.
Each year, Brill Street evaluates Chicago companies on professional development opportunities, benefits, environment, company reputation and culture, perks offered and the enthusiasm of company leadership and Gen Y employees. They’ve named the top 50 companies in Chicago and Enova not only made the list for the first time, but was named the best. Read our profile: http://brillstreet.com/GenYTop50/enova.
Since our launch in 2004 we have worked hard to build an organization that is committed to its employees, creating an environment that challenges them and seeks the best they have to offer. My experience has been that Gen Y talent specifically brings a level of confidence in challenging and changing the status quo, which is a major focus of our continuous work to delight customers. Their expertise aligns directly with the web-driven products we provide customers and we admire our Gen Y employees’ ability to drive product execution and help us innovate ahead of our competitors.
Trust is an important value to Gen Y employees, trust in their employer and knowing their employer trusts them in return. Among Enova’s corporate values is the challenge to all employees to “Operate As An Owner.” To do this we empower them with autonomy and trust. Employees are encouraged to take an active role in defining and leading their projects. This Brill Street recognition is great evidence that these efforts to foster the talents of our team members is working.
We’ll continue to work hard to make Enova an even better workplace, but it’s great to know that we are doing many things right to attract and keep amazing talent.
Congratulations to the entire Enova team and thanks to all who have helped build this great company over the past eight years!
