Varnum is Ranked as One of West Michigan's "101 Best Companies to Work For"
Varnum has been named one of West Michigan's "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" by the Michigan Business and Professional Association.
The "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" is an annual awards competition among participating West Michigan businesses giving companies the opportunity to showcase their best practices and demonstrate why they are an ideal place to work.
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.
Based on the results provided by MBPA, Varnum ranked higher than most companies of equal size in several categories, including diversity and multiculturalism, compensation and benefits, employee education, and development and community initiatives.
The Michigan Business and Professional Association will honor the winning companies on Thursday, May 5, 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 more than 200,0000 persons.
