Any organization with 50 or more employees in Michigan is eligible to participate in the ranking. Employers are grouped into small, medium and large sizes to best compare similar employee experiences.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating our ninth year being named a Top Workplace,” said TRUE Community Credit Union President/CEO Chrissy Siders. “This recognition celebrates our collective commitment to a workplace culture rooted in collaboration, compassion, and shared success. At TRUE, we understand that excellence is achieved when every member of our TRUE family is empowered and valued. This award is a testament to our ongoing journey of creating lasting legacy-defining moments for our members and employees.”
According to the Free Press, “Great workplaces aren’t created by accident. They are built and nurtured. The Top Workplaces awards recognize the employers that do it well in the eyes of their employees.”
