NOVI, Mich.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Tognum America Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of diesel engines and complete propulsion systems, is again named one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in Metropolitan Detroit by The Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA). The award annually recognizes 101 companies in the Detroit area that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to their employees and best practices in human resources.
“We take great pride in the culture of mutual respect and trust that we’ve created for our employees”
“Our employees are our greatest resource,” said Thomas Koenig, president of Tognum America. “Our corporate success largely depends on having a workforce that feels valued, motivated and fulfilled. We strive to ensure that our company is a place where employees can be proud to go to each day and we are honored to be a part of the MBPA’s 101 Best and Brightest for the fifth time.”
To select the MBPA’s 101 Best and Brightest, an independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on 12 key measures in various categories, such as compensation, benefits and employee solutions, employee enrichment, engagement and retention, diversity and inclusion, and work-life balance, among others. The firm then decides which 101 Metro Detroit companies have best demonstrated remarkable performance throughout the 12 categories.
“We take great pride in the culture of mutual respect and trust that we’ve created for our employees,” said Patrick Kapusta, director of human resources for Tognum America. “Only by continually encouraging our employees to develop to their full potential, improve their overall health and wellness, and maintain good work-life balance are we able to position ourselves as an attractive employer for both potential and current employees.”
