Enova International Named a Top Gen Y Employer for Second Year in a Row

Chicago tech leader earns high marks in employee satisfaction with company culture, professional development and opportunities for growth, and on-site amenities

CHICAGO (December 18, 2013) — For the second year in a row, Enova International, a global online lender, has been named to Brill Street + Company’s Top 50 Employers for Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago.  Once again, Enova is in the top tier of this competitive list, taking the number two spot.  Employers were evaluated on company offerings and employee satisfaction in six categories: professional development opportunities, benefits, environment, company reputation, culture and perks.

As one of Chicago’s largest digital companies, Enova employs more than 1,025 people in the Chicago area, including 460 Gen Y employees filling roles in a variety of sought-after careers including technology, analytics and digital marketing.  The company offers a collaborative and challenging work environment with a variety of perks such as tuition reimbursement, sabbaticals, yoga classes, haircuts, dry cleaning and manicures.

“It is estimated that by 2020, Gen Y employees will make up 40 percent of the U.S. workforce. In the more technologically innovative industries like ours, that number could double,” said David Fisher, CEO of Enova International.  “Being named a top Gen Y employer of choice for the second straight year validates that Enova is fostering an innovative environment where talented Gen Y employees can grow and thrive.”

Enova employees, who were surveyed by Brill Street as part of the award process, gave their employer top ratings for professional development and opportunities for growth, on-site amenities, and employee satisfaction with company culture.

“One of the really special things about our culture at Enova is how our core values are truly embraced across the organization, and this is a huge benefit for our Gen Y employees in the beginning stages of their careers,” Fisher says.  “For instance, our ‘Operate as an Owner’ and ‘Best Answer Wins’ values mean that an employee at any level can bring new ideas to the table and make a great impact on our business and 3 million plus customers.”
