For the third consecutive year Incredible Technologies (IT), the country's largest manufacturer of coin-operated video games, was named one of Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).
Incredible Technologies earned the award based on a range of criteria that includes diversity, work-life balance, compensation and benefits, employee education, retention, and community initiative. Best and Brightest winners are selected by an independent market research company and an independent panel of judges.
IT is the maker of Golden Tee Golf, the most successful coin-operated video game in entertainment history. Recently IT has diversified into the development of mobile entertainment such as iPhone apps, home video games for the Wii console system, and casino gaming, namely its new line of Magic Touch® video slot, poker, and keno games.
Incredible Technologies, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, employees 140 people. According to Cory Christensen, IT's director of human resources, winning the award for three years straight reflects the company's core philosophy: namely, that an employee-friendly atmosphere fosters success in every facet of business.
"A productive, satisfied, invested employee is the best kind to have," she said. "Our three-peat indicates that our owners have been successful in making sure every employee knows the value that both their job and person bring to our company."
IT has recently received other awards as well. Although still in testing at various casinos, Magic Touch has already received an industry award for its innovative technology. And president/CEO Elaine Hodgson—a former NASA scientist turned video game designer/entrepreneur—was recently honored with a "Great Women of Gaming" award by a leading gaming industry trade publication.
IT formally accepted its Best and Brightest award at NABR's August 2nd ceremony held at the Oak Brook, IL Marriot.
