Detroit, Nov. 11, 2019 – Giffels Webster, a Detroit-headquartered consulting firm specializing in community infrastructure and development solutions for public and private clients, is one of the Top Workplaces of 2019, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The Giffels Webster team was among 152 Michigan companies honored with the designation at the Nov. 7 award reception and dinner at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. The firm has been recognized as one of the Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces for three years in a row.
“The foundation for a great workplace is built by its employees,” said Scott Clein, president and partner at Giffels Webster. “Our team has created an environment and culture where personal and professional growth is valued, and can be seen throughout the communities we serve.”
Top Workplaces are nominated by employees through an anonymous online survey run by Detroit Free Press partner Energage. The survey measures how well Michigan employers are keeping workers motivated and satisfied. The questionnaire covers topics including company culture, benefits, workplace communication, flexibility, and more.
“This award continues to serve as a testament to our team,” said Clein. “Having the opportunity to receive thoughtful feedback and input from our employees results in great outcomes that help drive ongoing growth and improvement across the firm.”
Top Workplaces are identified in three categories based on company size. Giffels Webster is in the “Small Company” category with 92 employees across their three Michigan offices. Giffels Webster received an 84 percent staff response rate, which is seven percent higher than other participating companies.
