CHESTER, Pa., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Power Home Remodeling Group, one of the nation's largest home remodeling companies, was ranked No. 32 on the Chicago Tribune's "Top Workplaces 2013" list. With 115 employees, the company's regional office in Rosemont, Illinois was ranked in the small business category (companies with fewer than 250 employees).

Employees in Power's Rosemont office completed a detailed survey about their jobs, including questions related to team building, job satisfaction, manager effectiveness and alignment with company goals. Employees specifically cited the company's mission, culture and ethics as the leading reasons why Power should be named one of Chicago's top employers — leading Power to its first ranking in the Chicago Tribune's  "Top Workplaces" program.

"We're extremely honored to be recognized as a top workplace in Chicago only a year after we expanded to the market," said Ty Peltzman, Power's Regional Vice President in Rosemont. "Our paramount goal is to create jobs here in the region that provide employees with an opportunity for great upward mobility while helping homeowners cut energy costs and enjoy their homes. Our employees have the chance to greatly impact the company's overall success by working their way into one of the many leadership roles at our Rosemont office and beyond."

After three expansions up and down the East Coast in 2011, Power decided to expand to the Chicagoland area in May 2012. U.S. Senator Dick Durbin was the keynote speaker at Power's ribbon cutting and recognized the company's expansion into the Midwest that capitalized on federal energy efficiency programs to help boost employment and usher in hundreds of green jobs to the area — which he coined the "jobs of the future."

Power delivers energy-saving and environmentally friendly exterior home remodeling solutions, including replacement windows, vinyl siding, roofing, gutters, attic insulation and entry and garage doors. All employees complete a variety of comprehensive customer service training programs that include site visits to observe customer installs and product manufacturing procedures. In addition, each new employee is assigned a mentor to ensure continuing guidance and growth. Power offers unique compensation models that reward employees beyond traditional salaries, including incomparable parties and events, generous bonuses and prizes and an end-of-year vacation to a tropical location for all employees and a guest. Through these combined efforts, Power strives to create an environment that encourages employees to feel connected and invested in the company while delivering an exceptional home improvement experience to customers.
