United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) & Porter Hills recently announced it has been named a Best and Brightest Company to Work For® in both Metro Detroit and West Michigan.
This national program honors companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach. UMRC & Porter Hills is the only senior living organization in metro Detroit to receive this honor.
2020 marks the first year of this distinction for UMRC & Porter Hills from Metro Detroit Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® and the 18th straight year from West Michigan’s program.
“We are thrilled to be named a Best and Brightest Company to Work For®, shore to shore, in 2020,” said Michelle Henderson, UMRC & Porter Hills chief human resources officer. “This award validates and honors the tireless efforts of our team members across the state as they care for older adults, particularly in a year that has been so challenging.”
Each company is evaluated by an independent research firm on such key measures as compensation and benefits, employee education and development, recruitment and retention, and work-life balance to name a few. UMRC & Porter Hills will be honored, along with other Metro Detroit Best and Brightest Companies, at a virtual event on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. The West Michigan Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® were honored in May 2020.
