OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce has recognized Geneca for its exemplary workplace with the receipt of its Workplace Excellence Award. This award was created by the Chamber of Commerce and Right Management to honor companies that work with imagination and conviction to create environments that support professional and business growth.

Geneca, best known for its Getting Predictable(SM) approach to software development, has experienced steady growth over the past decade and continues to distinguish itself with a workplace that emphasizes employee development and recognition, work-life balance, and community giving. Award recipients were judged on human resources best practices that create value and positive impact for their business and workforce.

"No company, small or large, can be competitive without employees who are committed to the mission of the company," states Geneca President and Chief Culture Officer, Joel Basgall. "Our particular HR practices have been designed to give people a sense of purpose. We go the extra mile to help people feel excited about Geneca's success. We've found that this kind of connection has given many of our employees the impetus to directly contribute to company success."

During 2009, Geneca implemented several new HR practices, including the launch of a formalized internal training program, Geneca University. Designed and staffed by Geneca employees, Geneca University currently has over 40 courses, including sessions on development best practices, certification training, project management, and new Microsoft technologies. Geneca also received the 101Best and Brightest Places to Work in Chicago award in 2009 for the third consecutive year.

Geneca was honored along with Harris Bank, KPMG, and Hyatt Regency Chicago. The winners were announced at the Chicagoland Workplace Excellence Awards Forum on Oct. 29.
