2017 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation

Fleis & VandenBrink (F&V) is proud to announce that we are being recognized as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For nationwide.

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition in 2017 identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. The announcement was made this week, selecting 450 companies out of more than 5,000 entries.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized for this award based on our employees’ regard for our firm.  It is our staff that make us successful through their skills, knowledge experience and hard work so it is critical that we provide a challenging and rewarding work experience where they can continue to grow and improve the communities we work in.” said Paul Galdes, F&V president and principal. “Keep up the great work!”

Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. All participating companies receive a complimentary assessment report and benefits throughout the year.

The award caps off a very good year for F&V, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary next month. Earlier this year the company, which is headquartered in Grand Rapids and has six other offices in Michigan and two in Indiana, reached a milestone in employment going over the 200 mark.
