Best and Brightest for 15 years!
Director of Human Resource Services
For the 15th consecutive year Porter Hills is honored to be named one of “West Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” 2017!
What is it?
The West Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® Award is a prestigious honor given to companies who demonstrate impressive commitment to their employees and who deliver exceptional human resource practices.
Why is it important?
We know our employees give great care to our residents and it is our goal as an organization to provide that same level of care for our employees. We have a phenomenal group of trusted experts who are dedicated and passionate about what they do, and this award is really for them.
How are winners determined?
An independent 3rd party does an assessment of nominated companies. Each company must submit their answers to a substantial 146 question survey, and then the 3rd party sends out an employee survey to random staff members. All the information is then compared to local and national benchmarks and ultimately that determines who will receive the award.
What do they measure?
Some of the categories that are reviewed include
- compensation and benefits
- recruitment and selection
- diversity and inclusion
- employee achievement and recognition
- work-life balance
…. And more!
