Businesses throughout the region and across industries have been named to the annual list of West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the Michigan Business & Professional Association.

The list is created by an independent research firm that measures results based a number of management, employment and community variables.

The companies, considered outstanding at innovative strategies, human resources techniques and community outreach, will be celebrated at a symposium and awards program luncheon at 11 a.m., May 2, at the Pinnacle Center, 3330 Highland Drive, Hudsonville, where they will have a chance to vie for 11 elite awards, including an overall Best of the Best title. Tickets for the symposium and its workshops and gallery are $115 for MBPA members and $135 for non-members.

“Profitability and stability are essential for businesses in today's economic climate. Companies that recognize that their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power. Our 2013 winners style their business standards to ensure employee satisfaction, and they set standards for every business to aspire toward,” said Jennifer Kluge, MBPA president. “We are very impressed by the commitment that they have demonstrated to their employees.”

The MBPA, a business trade association representing small and mid-sized business members across Michigan, presents its 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For program annually in the markets of Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and West Michigan.
