Greenleaf Trust has been recognized for diversity initiatives as a Diversity Focused Company by Corp! Magazine, as well as a Cool Place to Work by Crain’s Detroit Business.

The diversity award from Corp! Magazine recognizes Greenleaf Trust’s success in: defining and monitoring diversity; demonstrating how diversity adds value; committing to diversity among its workforce and suppliers; fostering an inclusive workplace; making accommodations for minority and disabled employees; fostering career development of women, minority and disabled employees; supporting community outreach programs that encourage diversity and advancement of women; creating initiatives to meet the challenges and opportunities created by diversity.

“Greenleaf Trust sets high expectations for itself to be a place that embraces diversity, provides opportunity for all, and strives for continuous improvement. Our diligent focus in these areas are being felt by all teammates,” said Karen Baldwin, SVP and Director of Human Resources at Greenleaf Trust.

The Cool Place to Work award reflects Greenleaf Trust’s ongoing success in integrating “best practices” throughout its wealth management business, now with $16B in assets under advisement.

The COOL PLACE TO WORK award falls within Crain’s Detroit “Best Places” competition. Greenleaf Trust was recognized as the #1 “Cool” firm within the medium company (50 – 249 employees) category, and #4 in the all-inclusive national category, up from #5 last year. In competing for the award, Greenleaf Trust was evaluated on its workplace policies, practices, and demographics, followed by a comprehensive survey of its employees.
