Fortune’s latest list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For, 2007” includes four Michigan employers, led by Wisconsin-based S.C. Johnson, which ranked No. 7 nationally.
Johnson, which employs 423 at its Bay City facility, was cited for offering discounts at its child care center for families with incomes below $60,000 a year.
Michigan’s own Quicken Loans, headquartered in Livonia, came in at No. 17 and was praised for its twentieth-anniversary employee bash at the Quicken Loans Arena, where the Black Eyed Peas performed.
Plante & Moran, ranked No. 32, was lauded for its “extraordinary employee-centric” culture. The consulting firm, based in Southfield, boasts an employee turnover rate of 11 percent, among the lowest in the field.
Rounding out the top four was Dow Corning, where women hold 45 percent of the top executive positions, including CEO and CIO, and 26 percent of the managerial slots.
Tip: Citation as a great place to work can be a valuable recruiting tool. Fortune isn’t the only magazine to create top 100 lists. Working Mother magazine also touts top employers, and local business publications often run their own surveys. If you think your organization might qualify for a listing, check out state and local opportunities. By making the cut, you can reap lots of free publicity and great recruiting buzz.
