Lansing, Michigan (PRWEB) November 22, 2013
PM Environmental, Inc., one of the top 20 environmental consulting and engineering service companies in the US, has been named a 2013 National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For winner by the National Association for Business Resources.
Bestowed on companies that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment, the award was given to PM, in part, for creating an environment that encourages a strong employee work-life balance.
“We entered this competition open minded, expecting it to be a learning experience on where we need to improve and how we could become a better workplace. We were shocked, and more than pleasantly surprised, when we learned we were to receive this prestigious award of recognition,” said Michael T. Kulka, Founder and CEO of PM Environmental.
The company strives to accommodate its employees, who are allowed to work from home or customize work hours when necessary. In addition to scheduling flexibility, employees working towards advanced degrees can also count on tuition assistance.
At the office, Friday BBQs, on-site workout facilities in its Michigan offices, holiday donation drives and group sporting and charity events are a few of the ways PM fosters employee interaction as well as participation in the community.
“We have always shared an idea that we 'Grow to be better not bigger,'" said Kulka. "As we have grown, we now feel confident that it is not the number of offices we have that is important, but how good the people in these offices are. This award confirms this.”
PM Environmental also scored high marks for including its HR team in strategic planning and incorporating its recommendations.
“As the company grows, employee engagement and retention are increasingly important,” said Kristie Sova, head of Human Resources at PM Environmental. “HR is critical to the success of our business, and its programs, plans and initiatives are given the same weight in our strategic planning.”
