October 12, 2016, Kalamazoo, Michigan – At Greenleaf Trust, we don’t just stand behind our work—we stand behind the people who make it all possible.

Our belief that a positive work environment is essential to a healthy business has been a central component to our success. Today, we’re proud to announce that Greenleaf Trust was ranked 24th on the country’s Best Small and Medium Workplaces, as published by Fortune and Great Place to Work®.

Greenleaf Trust was awarded this accolade based on the anonymous participation of our employees in an extensive survey. More than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies participated in the study with questions ranging from trustworthiness to company pride to camaraderie in the workplace.

“We survey our teammates every year to gauge their engagement and get their input on how we can improve as a company for our clients. When we ask them about what they are most pleased with as a member of Greenleaf Trust, the unequivocal answer, year after year, is culture. That’s why we listen and work every day to nurture our culture,” said Greenleaf Trust President, Michael F. Odar.

“Greenleaf Trust has a broad-based team dedicated to nurturing and protecting our culture. They strive to keep employees informed and connected with opportunities that make their jobs even more rewarding,” said Sarah A. Johansson, Vice President and Director of Marketing.
