A large group of West Michigan employers have been rated some of the best to work for in the U.S.
The National Association for Business Resources (NABR), based in Warren, announced its list of the 2019 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation, and 89 West Michigan companies are on the list, compared to 61 in 2018.
The awards program honors organizations that “display a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment” that leads to “increased productivity and financial performance.”
Companies are assessed based on metrics such as compensation, benefits, employee education and development, work-life balance, communication, and diversity and inclusion.
“With the war on talent hitting the doorsteps of the best and brightest, this achievement means even more than it did a year ago,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.
“As we continue to raise the bar, these companies rise to the challenge through cultural innovation, maximizing their workforce potential.”
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation will be featured in the February online edition of Corp! Magazine.
The National Association of Business Resources was founded in 1996.
Through its Best and Brightest programs, NABR provides specialized business services, education and resources for businesses throughout the U.S.
