To help HR professionals and business owners better understand their benefit plan claim costs, United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in conjunction with Symetra Life Insurance Company, will host a webinar — “What’s Driving Claim Costs and Employer Solutions” — on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 3:30 p.m. ET.
HRPro was recently named as one of the top three 2018 Cool Places to Work in Michigan. The awards program was created in 2012 and is a project of Crain Content Studio, the marketing storytelling arm of Crain’s Detroit Business, and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Michigan, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2018 Cool Places to Work in Michigan list is made up of 100 companies in three size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees) and large (250+ U.S. employees).
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Cool Places to Work in Michigan. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Michigan and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
“HRPro is proud to be recognized as a cool place to work for the third year in a row. Being ranked #3 makes us especially proud as it validates what we already know, that having a great culture and making your employees feel appreciated and valued is a top priority in an organization. We help other companies increase their employee’s engagement and help them create an empowering, creative culture. This award shows that we utilize these same practices in our own organization and they work.” said HRPro President and CEO, Kristopher Powell.
A look behind the culture:
HRPro was founded with an essential mission; to help organizations take better care of their people. To achieve this, they treat themselves as their own client. They understand the importance of keeping their employees engaged and happy.
“Here at HRPro we believe that great company culture is critical in delivering great customer care. We want our employees to take great care of our clients. We know for that to happen, we must take great care of our employees.” says Powell.
Among perks such as alternating Friday’s off in the summer, a comprehensive EAP program, flexible hours, wellness reimbursement programs, telemedicine, Christmas bonuses, company “field trips” to the ice cream parlor, company outings such as Tiger games and picnics, the true value of working at HRPro is the feeling of family and camaraderie that’s encouraged every day.
