For the third year in a row, Warner Norcross & Judd LLP has been named one of West Michigan's 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.
The Grand Rapids-based law firm, which has three offices in West Michigan, was one of 64 businesses to be honored in the 2005 program. Nominees were evaluated in a number of categories, including communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.
"We are pleased to receive this recognition for a third consecutive year," said Alex. J. DeYonker, managing partner of Warner Norcross. "Warner Norcross strives to provide an exceptional work environment that promotes trust, respect and cooperation. One of our top priorities is providing a flexible workplace that emphasizes exceptional client service while allowing our attorneys and staff to maintain an appropriate balance between their professional and personal lives."
A panel of judges reviewed a detailed survey on the Firm's human resources practices and also conducted extensive interviews with employees. In reaching their decision, the judges were looking for above-average programs, services and solutions for employees, adaptation to new factors in the marketplace and unique thought processes that received support from senior management and policy makers.
West Michigan's 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For is cosponsored by the Michigan Business & Professional Association and the Michigan Food & Beverage Association.
