Chicago, IL—November 14, 2014—Coyote Logistics is proud to announce its inclusion on the Chicago Tribune‘s list of the Top 100 Workplaces in Chicago for its fifth consecutive year. This year Coyote holds the #4 ranking in the large employer category. The Top Workplaces rankings are determined by employee feedback, with a workplace survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics.
“Coyote’s repeat appearances on the Top Workplaces lists make me incredibly proud of Coyote’s culture and of the kids we’ve hired to protect and nurture it,” said Jeff Silver, cofounder and CEO of Coyote. Coyote ranked #2 in the small size category in 2010, #1 in the midsize category in 2011 and 2012, and #7 in the midsize category in 2013. This is Coyote’s fifth year on the list.
“At a young age, from high school and into college, I wanted to create a company where people could be happy at work and feel like they belonged to it,” said Marianne Silver, cofounder and chief people officer at Coyote. “What has surprised me most about the culture is as we get bigger, our culture gets stronger.”
More than 1,000 Coyotes work at the company’s headquarters in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, with another 1,000 employees working in 15 offices nationwide, and Coyote continues to grow at an exponential rate. Coyote is one of the fastest organic-growing third-party logistics (3PL) providers in the industry. One of the factors catapulting the company to such success is its “No Excuses” commitment to providing the best service in the industry, and Coyote hunts for smart, entrepreneurial, driven, tenacious people who will uphold that unrivaled dedication to more than 14,000 shippers and 40,000 carriers.
The Top Workplaces are determined solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.
