Chicago’s Best and Brightest Program on June 28 selected Wheels as one of the best companies to work for in Chicago. The auto leasing and fleet management company oversees more than 300,000 vehicles, and provides a full range of specialized services to help corporations manage their fleets.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment.
