November 6, 2017
Grand Rapids, MI/ Detroit, MI – Service Express has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
The contest, in its tenth year and running in partnership with the Workplace Dynamics consulting firm, looks at how well Michigan employers are keeping workers motivated and satisfied by evaluating 24-question employee surveys.
“For the employees, we find that earning the Top Workplaces designation is a nice boost for morale,” said Bob Helbig, the media partnership’s director for Workplace Dynamics. “It’s a nice validation of all the hard work that goes into creating a good work environment. Good workplaces don’t happen by accident.”

In fact, our company Vision is ‘to work with employees to help them achieve their personal, professional, and financial goals,’ so our team is the basis for everything we do,” said Service Express President and CEO Ron Alvesteffer. “The fact that the the employee survey results came back so positive validates the effort we put in cultivating a strong corporate culture.”
