CHICAGO – November 8, 2023 – For the second consecutive year, Sterling Bay, Chicago’s premier real estate investment and development firm, has been named a Top Workplace by Chicago Tribune. This annual award, based on the results of an anonymous employee survey that measures satisfaction across 15 categories, recognizes the city’s leading companies that offer the best workplace experience.

Sterling Bay’s people-first approach to real estate development, which has earned the firm a national reputation for raising the bar on creative office from San Diego to Miami, informs its approach to workplace benefits. Offering employees access to the same hospitality-inspired workplace amenities it offers tenants–like complimentary food and beverage, indoor/outdoor conference areas, high-tech fitness centers, and on-site wellness services–Sterling Bay utilizes its award-winning headquarters in Chicago’s Fulton Market District to attract top talent, enhance employees’ social connection, enable face-to-face collaboration, and create culture-building moments.

Sterling Bay actively solicits insights from this committee to create greater equity across the organization, with a specific focus on fair and balanced hiring initiatives.
