Detroit Free Press Names Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center Top Workplace in Michigan

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Nov. 12, 2018 - PRLog -- The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (The Center) has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research organization Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name just a few.

This was the first year that The Center entered the Top Workplaces contest. With more than 50 employees at their facility, The Center was included in the "Small Companies" category, ultimately placing 19th out of 60 organizations statewide. Since first opening in 1991, The Center has worked to establish a cohesive, organized and friendly work environment for both employees and clients. Now, with 92% of employees taking part in the survey, staff members overwhelmingly responded saying their workplace is among the best.

"The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is truly honored to receive this Top Workplaces award," stated Mike Coast, President of The Center. "For years we have strived to create a welcoming, innovative and supportive culture among our staff, and we all are proud to have our efforts recognized by the Detroit Free Press. This is a meaningful acknowledgement, and we will continue working towards improving our workplace in the future.

"With the staffing challenges now facing many employers, from lack of talent available to difficulty engaging and retaining existing employees, this award signifies that we are doing something right to keep our team interested in their jobs and enthused about the opportunity to support Michigan's manufacturers," Coast concluded.

The Center offers personalized services to meet the needs of clients in virtually every aspect of their businesses. The Center's consulting services include: Growth, Cybersecurity, Operational Excellence, Leadership Development, Skill Development, Accelerating Technology, Research Services and Food Processing.

In effect, every $1 a company spent with The Center returned $157 back in financial improvements.
