January 10, 2019, Kalamazoo, MI – The National Association for Business Resources has named Greenleaf Trust one of the nation’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. Greenleaf Trust is one of only 512 winning companies out of 2,400 contenders. Other national winners include Sony, Panasonic, Prudential, Ace Hardware, and SpartanNash. This is the eight year Greenleaf Trust has received this honor.
Winners will be recognized at the Best and Brightest National Summit 2019 in Chicago later this year. The summit is recognized as a gathering of premier companies across the US that excel in employee enrichment and culture building.
“It’s a great honor when others recognize Greenleaf Trust’s exceptional commitment to our clients, and it’s also a testament to the passion and competence of our team,” said Michael F. Odar, President of Greenleaf Trust.
Only one in five contending companies earn the prestigious “National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” award. An independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories including compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.
“Greenleaf Trust and other national winners create tremendous organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices. A Best and Brightest Company to Work For national award is sought by thousands of successful businesses, yet earned by only one in five,” said Ana Mancoci, National Association for Business Resources.
