We Strive to #BeBrilliant

From flexible PTO to virtual happy hours to Cub rooftops, we work hard to ensure that every team member feels supported and encouraged to have a healthy balance between work and home commitments. We refer to doing things The Brilliant Way and that means working together for one common purpose of making people's lives better — including our own — and to #bebrilliant throughout the process.

“We have a global mindset and believe in a diverse workplace. Our inclusive spirit allows our team members to experience a safe, comfortable and engaging environment that allows our team members to thrive and sparks innovation, productivity and success.”

— Sheldon Schur, CEO, Brilliant

Philanthropy | Community | Foundations

Brilliant’s mission is to make people’s lives better and that includes our clients, candidates, colleagues— and our communities.

We work with various local charities in both the Greater Chicago and South Florida markets to help the underserved and underprivileged in hopes of brightening their days, if even just a little bit.

Below are a few of the organizations our team members have volunteered their time in the past.

A Safe Haven Foundation is a social enterprise that helps people aspire, transform and sustain their lives as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. Some of the populations served include military veterans, families, non-violent criminal justice impacted populations, as well as men, women and children.

Since 2015, Brilliant has participated in at least one Safe Haven event a year, including:

  • A Brilliant-organized Holiday Party for women and children of A Safe Haven which included cookie decorating, create-your-own ornaments, ring toss games, a hot chocolate bar and more winter activities,
  • Volunteering at the Chicago Auto Show to collect canned goods for the families of A Safe Have
  • A Summer Activity Day for Safe Haven residents and families, which included fun games, sports, face painting, and other summer activities.

Make-A-Wish believes in the power of a child’s wish. They make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Starting with one boy’s wish of owning a computer, the organization has now grown to grant a wish every 16 hours. Granting wishes takes hundreds of individuals and entities that are committed to making a difference. Brilliant’s Greater Chicago and Fort Lauderdale locations have been active partners of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, including volunteer/sponsorships experiences such as the Walk For Wishes 5K and the Wishes Uncorked event.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is a home environment that provides support and resources for families of sick children under the age of 21, and is located close to hospitals and doctors to better accommodate the families’ needs. As part of the graduation component of BrilliantU’s professional development program SOARING, select team members visited the Ronald McDonald House in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood close to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago to cook and serve lunch to the families staying in the facility.

StreetWise is a workforce development agency that provides the homeless and those at risk of homelessness in Chicago with opportunities for gainful self-employment, in order to guide them on the road to stability and self-sufficiency. For close to 20 years, StreetWise has allowed individuals in crisis immediate access to a legitimate earned income. In 2018, Brilliant was a proud sponsor of StreetWise’s The COOL Party, which is an annual benefit and celebration of the StreetWise organization and all of the successes that have evolved within it.
