Chicago (February 17, 2021) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, is proud to announce that its Ann Arbor, Michigan office— home to its Humantech Ergonomics solutions—has been named one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in the Nation by the National Association for Business Resources. This is the sixth year VelocityEHS has received the award, which recognizes companies that demonstrate exceptional innovative human resource practices and that set high standards for all businesses to follow.
“It’s such an honor to be recognized as one of the country’s best and brightest places to work,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “I’m immensely proud of what our team has accomplished during such a historically challenging year; even during a global pandemic our employees displayed extraordinary tenacity to accelerate our company’s growth and lay the groundwork for another successful year in 2021.”
Organizations are assessed for the award 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 employees but to raise the benchmark for company practices. To be considered, companies submit a questionnaire about their human resource practices and employees are also asked to complete a questionnaire about what it is like to work there.
In an effort to maintain a continued sense of community as employees across the country worked from home, the company hosted a series of virtual social events and conducted regular town hall meetings for leadership to share important company information and address employee questions and concerns. VelocityEHS further ensured its employees comfort and safety by making its Office Ergonomics software training and assessment tools available to the entire staff enabling them to create more ergonomically correct home work spaces.
With over 20 years of experience conducting the Best and Brightest competitions, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has identified numerous best Human Resource practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.
