Woodridge, Illinois-based trade show display and exhibit manufacturer Orbus Exhibit & Display Group says it celebrated several important achievements in 2017.
The company is now up to 412 full-time employees, and it continues to add new staffers to various areas of the business.
For the third straight year Orbus was named one of the “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” an annual list put out by the National Association for Business Resources. According to the company, companies qualify for that recognition by displaying a commitment to excellence in human resources practices and employee enrichment.
“Creating a company culture that focuses on the satisfaction of our team has proven time and time again to be one of the key elements of Orbus’ success,” says Giles Douglas, president and CEO of Orbus. “It is an honor to have been chosen as a Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation for the third year in a row. We look forward to continuing to strike a balance between hard work and employee satisfaction.”
Orbus also reached a milestone of recycling 80 percent of its total waste in 2017. The company says it places continuous focus on efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, recycle and protect the environment. As part of this initiative, the company continued its partnership with UPS to participate in its Carbon Neutral Shipping program. The program offers businesses the option to ship packages as carbon neutral, so as to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact that shipping has on the environment. With Orbus’ help, UPS mitigated 381 metric tons of CO2 emissions during the period of Sept. 2016-Aug 2017.
