Varnum Named One of West Michigan’s “Best and Brightest”
April 12, 2010
Varnum has been selected as one of “West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” for the third consecutive year.
"The distinction of being a 101 Best and Brightest Company to Work For is a testament to our commitment to our staff and our goal to attract and retain top talent," said Larry Murphy, Varnum's managing partner.
According to award organizers, only companies with the highest quality human resources initiatives can be named “West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.” This honor is highly sought after by competing companies throughout the region.
To qualify for the award, Varnum completed an extensive questionnaire addressing key accomplishments and topics such as compensation, benefits, work-life balance, communication, education, and community initiatives. In addition, Varnum employees were polled in an electronic survey which helps determine winners as well as provide a benchmark for company practices. All applications are examined on a point system; those receiving the highest points were selected as the winners.
The Michigan Business and Professional Association will honor the winning companies on Thursday, May 6, at the Pinnacle Center in Grand Rapids. The winning companies also vie for 10 elite awards, one granted for each category, and an overall winner, who has excelled in all categories, will be honored with a “Best of the Best” award. The award winners will be announced during the luncheon.
Based in Warren, Mich., the Michigan Business & Professional Association is the largest business organization of small to medium-sized businesses in Michigan, representing more than 20,000 members who employ over 200,0000 persons.
