Following a 3 Year People-Driven Journey, Flow-Rite Named One of “West Michigan's Best and Brightest”
Byron Center, MI – March 28, 2017
Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® has selected Flow-Rite Controls as one of the 2017 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in West Michigan.
“Flow-Rite had experienced a rapid rate of growth and the challenges coming with it. We felt organizationally disconnected as we grew, creating different companies between our production and office staffs,” said Todd Hart, Executive Vice President. “We needed a way to measure and quantify what we felt, so we submitted for Best and Brightest for the first time in 2014. The results were worse than we ever expected.”
“It was with those first results we embarked upon a people-driven journey to create a vision, mission, and values for the company we wanted to be, with the understanding there will be potholes in the road,” said Hart. “This year’s result is another rewarding milestone in our journey. Now, we reset our starting line to a higher goal!”
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® is a program that provides the business community with the opportunity to gain recognition, showcase their best practices and demonstrate why they are an ideal place for employees to work. This national program celebrates those companies that are making better business, creating richer lives and building a stronger community as a whole.
“Profitability and stability is essential for businesses in today’s economic climate. Companies that recognize that their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power. Our 2017 winners create their human resource standards to ensure employee satisfaction and they set standards for every business to aspire toward,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO of B&B Programs. “We are proud to honor this year’s winners.”
