Plante & Moran Named One of West Michigan’s 101 Best & Brightest
GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — For the fourth year in a row, Plante & Moran, PLLC has been named one of West Michigan’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.
The accounting and business advisory firm, which has three offices in West Michigan, was among the businesses to be honored in the 2009 program. Nominees were evaluated in a number of categories, including communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multi-culturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.
A panel of judges reviewed a detailed survey on the firm’s human resources practices and also conducted extensive interviews with staff members. In reaching their decision, the judges were looking for above-average programs, services and solutions for employees, adaptation to new factors in the marketplace and unique thought processes that received support from senior management and policy makers.
“West Michigan is widely recognized as having one of the most skilled, and hardest working, employee bases in the nation,” said George Riddering, office managing partner of Grand Rapids. “Plante & Moran is very fortunate to be included in this year’s Best & Brightest winners. It is exciting to be recognized as an employer of choice who recognizes how important it is to recruit and retain the best talent that our region has to offer.”
