Greenleaf Trust has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2022 for the second year in a row, and the only winner from the state of Michigan. Hitting newsstands in the May/June 2022 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture.
Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 475 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.
“As a part of our commitment to provide holistic wealth management for our clients, we must first provide outstanding benefits and promote holistic well-being in our team,” said Karen Baldwin, CSP™, SHRM-SCP™, NDCCDP Executive Vice President, Director of Human Resources at Greenleaf Trust. “Our presence on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list is evidence that our team members value the caring and collaborative workplace that we strive to cultivate and perpetuate that culture towards premiere client service.”
“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
