With 23 offices, including 12 in Michigan, Plante Moran remains a leader in attracting and retaining staff in the competitive professional services arena through progressive workplace programs and time-tested approaches.

Speaking to the Detroit Free Press, Plante Moran Group Managing Partner Jim Proppe shared his perspective on the recognition.

"Corporate culture is all-important,” Proppe said. “That culture includes giving staffers lots of freedom, having them work in teams and not burdening them with a lot of rules. “We’re very careful to nurture, to build it, and we’re very careful to pass it down from one generation to the next."

The Top Workplaces competition, which is open to any organization with at least 50 employees in Michigan, is based purely on the results of a 22 question employee survey that measures engagement, satisfaction, and organizational health. Employees act as the judging panel, with company rankings being based on the ratings given by employees. For more information on the survey, visit
