Michigan Software Labs Named One of the Country's Best Workplaces by FortuneAugust 9, 2021
ADA, MICHIGAN (August 9, 2021) -- Michigan Software Labs has been named as one of the Fortune Best Small & Medium Workplaces™ based on an independent survey by consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine. Michigan Software Labs came in 79 on the list. This is the second year in a row the company has won the award.
Michigan Software Labs won this accolade based on employees' anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
"We are so excited to win this award again this year. Our goal starting Michigan Software Labs was to create a team where great people would feel fulfilled creating software that positively influences the world around us," said Josh Hulst. "It's always been people first for us, and we're grateful for this award that validates we're doing a lot of things right."
"There's a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. "Whether it's funding employee 'passion projects' or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue."
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces:
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
