More than 30 organizations from West Michigan are standing among the nation’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.

The 2014 National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For, an annual human resources awards competition, has recognized more than 200 organizations across the country for their HR practices and employee-enrichment strategies.

Organizations can participate in the competition through a nomination process and are assessed on a number of HR categories: competitiveness of compensation and benefits; employee engagement and retention; education and career development; recruitment and selection; achievement and recognition; diversity and inclusion; and work-life balance.

All of the participating organizations receive a complimentary assessment report and those who were honored with the national award will be included in the Dec. 15 edition of Corp! magazine.

West Michigan organizations that won the award represent a range of industries: professional services; engineering, construction, health care, food service and more.

Many of the West Michigan organizations are based in the Grand Rapids area.

“OST employees bring the meaning of Best and Brightest to the table daily,” said Michael Lomonaco, a spokesperson for Grand Rapids-based OST, an award winner. “We are honored with this award and look forward to celebrating this recognition with all of our employees.”
