ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Humantech, Inc., a VelocityEHS company, announced today that it was recognized as one of “Metropolitan Detroit’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” at the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA) awards ceremony on Friday, September 21st. Only companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach can be bestowed this honor. This is the eighth year Humantech has received this recognition.
Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. One objective of the program is to not only improve the workplace for the employees but to raise the benchmark for company practices. To be considered, companies submit a questionnaire about their human resource practices. Employees are also asked to complete a questionnaire about what it is like to work there.
Once the surveys are complete, an independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories: compensation; benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; strategic company performance; and, the best of the best small business, medium business and large business.
“Profitability and stability are essential for businesses in today’s economic climate. Companies that recognize that employees are the key to their success achieve staying power. Our 2018 winners create their human resource standards to ensure employee satisfaction and they set standards for every business to aspire toward,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, National Association for Business Resources.
“To be awarded this designation for the eighth time confirms we’ve earned our employees’ trust. We’re proud of the culture we’ve created and are thrilled our team agrees,” says Humantech President, James Mallon.
This program celebrates companies that are making business better, creating richer lives and building a stronger community. It is presented annually in several markets including, Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and more.
