The National Association for Business Resources named nearly 80 companies headquartered in West Michigan to its list of the 2020 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation.

The organization released the unranked list containing 79 West Michigan winners last week. The 2020 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation will be honored during the virtual Illuminate Business Summit week in spring 2021. During the summit, the 101 highest scoring national winning companies will be revealed, and the Elite awards also will be presented to the highest-winning companies demonstrating exceptional innovative human resource practices and setting high standards for all businesses.

The 2020 national winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm, which reviewed several key metrics, including compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee engagement, retention, education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; and more.

“Throughout 2020, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For have demonstrated leadership and forward-thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through COVID-19,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “As the conversation and focus have shifted, our Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions regarding creating a virtual culture that works, race relations and ensuring the well-being of their employees come first. In these unique times, these Best and Brightest Companies to Work For excel and share their knowledge with others.”
