Being recognized for something that you believe in and work hard at is meaningful. We work hard at helping our clients achieve their goals, and along the way exceeding their expectations. In order to do this, we need a talented, highly engaged team. Which means we also work hard at attracting the best of the best talent and providing them with a dynamic workplace culture that amplifies their strengths.

Since 2011, The National Association for Business Resources has named the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For in the Nation. The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment that lead to increased productivity and financial performance. Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. This competition scores potential winners based on regional data of company performance and a set standard across the nation. This national program celebrates those companies that are making better business, creating richer lives and building a stronger community as a whole.

I am extremely excited to announce that for the ninth year in a row Greenleaf Trust has been named one of the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For in the Nation® for 2019. We have been on the list for National Best and Brightest since the award’s inception, and for the second time in three years we were named a Top 101 Winner. This means that of the 5,000 nominations received from 40 states in 2019, Greenleaf Trust was one of the top 101 highest scoring national winners of the 540 companies that received the National Best and Brightest honor this year.

The recognition is meaningful to our entire team because of the belief we have in each other and in our culture. The consistency of the recognition also helps in our recruiting efforts by letting talented job candidates know we are committed to the development and continuous improvement of our team.

Strong and vibrant communities require friends. Therefore it should not be surprising that we are also excited that a few of our community friends were also named Top 101 Winners – Greenleaf Hospitality Group, HUMANeX Ventures, Southwest Michigan First, Stryker and TowerPinkster.
