SPINS Celebrates One Year in the City of Chicago, Offers Unprecedented Opportunities to Chicago’s Work Force

Chicago – March 30, 2017 – SPINS®, the only source for consumer insights; digital applications for brands, consumers, and retailers; cross-channel retail analytics; health & wellness expertise; and industry-leading consulting services, announces record growth in both revenue and personnel since relocating to Chicago.

In November of 2015, SPINS made the strategic decision to relocate its office of more than 10 years from Schaumburg, IL to take advantage of the city of Chicago’s abundant professional talent and join other growing entrepreneurs in food and technology in River North.

SPINS, working at the intersection of data, digital, and health & wellness, has expanded its workforce from 150 to over 200 employees, hiring 79 new employees in 14 months. In 2017, SPINS will further expand its workforce with 50 new positions with competitive total compensation and an exceptional corporate wellness program.

“There’s no doubt about it – SPINS is on a roll,” Mayor Emanuel said. “Thanks to the world-class talent and transportation in Chicago, the company is expanding even faster than its aggressive growth estimates, and I look forward to witnessing their continued success for years to come.”

SPINS’ Vibrancy360 offers a paradigm shift within corporate wellness initiatives. Promoting optimal health through vibrant living, the program offers employees access to a variety of programs on-site, including cooking classes with local chefs, massages, product demonstrations from SPINS’ clients in the health & wellness industry, yoga, and more. With goals to Inspire, Move, Inform, and Nourish (I’M IN), Vibrancy360 empowers and encourages members of the SPINS team to share what activates their sense of vibrancy among each another and in the greater community.

In addition to their many individual volunteer efforts, SPINS team members have served the local community together several times over their first year in the new Chicago office as part of Vibrancy360’s Inspire initiative. Team members have organized group outings to the Anti-Cruelty Society, Chicago Cares, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, bringing SPINS mission to live vibrantly to life in their new downtown Chicago community.
