Senior living organization Brio Living Services, formerly United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) & Porter Hills, recently announced that it has received the designation of Best and Brightest Company to Work For® in West Michigan for the 20th consecutive year.
This national program honors organizations that “display a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment,” according to a press release by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).
“The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of the nation’s elite leaders who share ideas, practices, and have proven they are employers of choice. This designation is a great recruitment tool to attract and retain talent,” according to the press release.
“We are delighted to receive recognition as a Best and Brightest organization in West Michigan for the twentieth year in a row,” said Brio Living Services Chief Human Resources Officer Michelle Henderson in a press realse.
“This honor is a direct reflection of our team members at Brio Living Services who help deliver on our mission each day: Welcoming all, partnering together, enriching lives. We could not be more proud of this designation and of our dedicated team members who work tirelessly to improve the lives of older adults,” she said.
“These 2022 winning organizations have stood out during unpredictable times and have proven they are an employer of choice,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO of NABR and The Best and Brightest Program in a press release.
“They continue to keep the needs of their employees first and provide perks that include development, well-being, work-life balance, rewards and recognition,” she said.
Each company is evaluated by an independent research firm on such key measures as compensation and benefits, employee education and development, recruitment and retention, employee achievement and recognition, and work-life blend to name a few. NABR identifies best human resource practices and provides benchmarking for companies, like Brio Living Services, that continue to be leaders in employment standards.
Brio Living Services will be honored, along with other West Michigan Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®, in July 2022.
