Radio Flyer Named Top Place to Work 2015.
Crain's Chicago Business named Radio Flyer to its Best Places to Work 2015 list.
In the associated article, CEO Robert Pasin ('97), whose grandfather founded Radio Flyer 98 years ago, says one of the best things about working at the iconic company is its mission. "So many companies try to connect what they do to a higher meaning, but it's really easy for us to do that," he says. "There are all these wonderful milestones, events and emotions around the brand."
The firm scores high on corporate social responsibility and is committed to providing family-oriented perks: flex time year-round, summer and holiday parties for employees and their families, kids visiting the West Side headquarters regularly to test products, a "Take Your Kids to Work Day" program along with other incentives such as wellness reimbursement program, bike mileage reimbursement, an exercise room, a vegetable garden and a walking path on the premises.
