KALAMAZOO, MI – The streak has reached double-digits.
For the tenth consecutive year, Borgess Health has been named as one of “West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” by the Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA). The annual designation highlights companies and organizations in the region that are the best in implementing exceptional human resource practices in such categories as work-life balance, employee enrichment, employee achievement and recognition, diversity and inclusion, and community initiatives.
“The ‘West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For’ designation is a highly sought after honor by competing companies throughout the region,” said Paul Spaude, President & CEO, Borgess Health. “Borgess is a great place to work, and since 1889 we’ve proved it. Not only do we attract bright and talented professionals, we also provide them with tools, resources and support to enhance their work experience so they can connect with people at many different levels to foster an environment for better healing. All our associates are to be congratulated for this outstanding honor.”
An independent research firm evaluates area companies and organizations in the above categories and others. Companies and organizations are scored on above-average programs including adaptation to new factors in the marketplace, top support from senior management and policy makers, and services and solutions for employees. This year‟s winners practice innovative strategies and represent best practices in human resources in industries as diverse as automotive, insurance, hospitality, communications and nonprofit.
“Profitability and stability is essential for businesses in today‟s economic climate,” said Jennifer Kluge, MBPA president. “Companies that recognize their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power. Our 2013 winners style their business standards to ensure employee satisfaction and they set standards for every business to aspire toward. We are very impressed by the commitment that they have demonstrated to their employees.”
The select companies will be honored by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA) during an annual symposium and luncheon awards program Thursday, May 2, at The Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville, Mich. An overall winner that excelled in all categories will be honored during the luncheon with a “Best of the Best Overall” award.
