Grand Rapids, MI – The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has selected Service Express as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in West Michigan. The leading provider in third-party data center maintenance has been featured on the West Michigan list for 18 years in a row.
“On behalf of our people-powered team, we are honored to be recognized in West Michigan for being a Best and Brightest company,” said President and CEO Ron Alvesteffer. “Our people are supportive, caring and contribute to our culture and the company’s success every day. We couldn’t grow without you!”
In addition to providing new opportunities, Service Express offers in-depth learning and development opportunities. Internal training includes Ascend Sales Academy, Aces Technical Academy and more. The company has used the past year to reflect on its current offerings to improve and provide more inclusive and robust benefits for its people. One of the most notable initiatives includes expanding the company’s paid paternal leave policy by granting time off to birthing and non-birthing parents.
An independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on categories such as compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee enrichment, employee education and development, recruitment and more. According to the NABR, only companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach are selected.
“Throughout the year, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® have demonstrated leadership and forward–thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through Covid-19. As the conversation and focus have shifted, our Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions regarding race relations employee wellbeing. In these unique times, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® excel and share their knowledge with others,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.
