101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For
Livonia, MI (PRWEB) August 30, 2007
For the fourth consecutive year, American Community Mutual Insurance Company, a leading provider of Individual and Group health insurance, has been named one of "Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" by the Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA).
The "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" awards program was established to honor companies that recognize employees as their greatest asset. Winners of the annual award are companies that create organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices in human resource management.
"American Community is honored to be named one of the ‘Best and Brightest’ companies in southeast Michigan," said Michael E. Tobin, President and CEO. "We strive to ensure that our human resource practices meet and exceed the expectations of our employees, which creates a positive work environment where individuals can excel in their respected fields."
To be eligible, the MBPA contacts the nominated company’s human resource department to complete an extensive survey. American Community’s employees are randomly selected and complete an anonymous confidential survey about their work environment. The collected data is submitted to a volunteer panel of judges and is scored on a point system. Companies receiving the highest points are selected as one of "Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For."
"As testament to our human resource practices for employees, along with commitment and service to our customers, 45-50% of our annual external hires result from employee and business partner referrals, as well as previous employees seeking to re-join us," added Tobin. "Our average length of service for active employees is just under nine years, which is a clear indication that longevity has been an important aspect to American Community’s success for nearly seven decades."
The MBPA will be honoring all award recipients during an October 4 ceremony.
