MichiganLabs among INC. MAGAZINE’S BEST WORKPLACES 2021

[GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN] (May 24, 2021) – Michigan Software Labs has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. The team has won the award in 2019, 2020, and now in 2021.

Of the nearly 11 million companies in the U.S.A., Inc. singled out 429 finalists for this year’s list. This is the third year in a row Michigan Software Labs has won this award from Inc. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then Inc. ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.

“We are very honored to have earned this nationwide award again from Inc.,” said Josh Hulst, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of MichiganLabs. “We have an outstanding team; this is really about recognizing their efforts.”

The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity.

“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
