Brightwing Crain's Cool Places to WorkBrightwing, a nationwide recruiting and staffing company headquartered in Troy, MI, is happy to announce that they have been named to Crain’s 2018 Cool Places to Work in Michigan list. This is the third consecutive year that Brightwing has won this award.


The Coolest Places award program was created to recognize companies that go above and beyond to create and nurture a great company culture. The list of winners consists of 100 companies in three size categories, ranging from small, medium, and large. Companies nominated for Cool Places to Work in Michigan went through a two-part process. The first was a survey to evaluate each company’s benefits, policies, best practices, and demographics. This was followed by an employee survey to gauge their engagement and satisfaction. A third-party group managed and evaluated the data to determine the final awards rankings.


“We’re honored to be continually recognized as one of the coolest places to work in Michigan,” comments Aaron Chernow, CEO of Brightwing. “Our core mission is to champion human potential, and we’ve worked hard to create an environment that empowers our team to grow and achieve great things.”


In this year’s Cool Places to Work in Michigan, Brightwing was recognized for their customized training and leadership development program, as well as other perks, like half days before holiday weekends and games during lunch breaks.


 “Brightwing has an incredible culture,” said Adam Stern, Lead Recruiter at Brightwing. “It’s really the reason I come to work every day. They’re like my extended family. Brightwing is incredibly supportive; they support me every day, making sure that I’m the best that I can be.”


Beyond its collaborative, innovative culture and great benefits, employees are also able to enjoy the perks of an on-site fitness room, weekly yoga classes, team lunches, and more.


“At Brightwing, our motto is ‘Recruiting, Reimagined,’ which describes our commitment to relationships and genuine partnership with our clients and candidates. But we know that these values start within our own walls,” adds Chernow. “The business landscape, particularly in staffing, has become overly transactional, which is anything but ‘cool.’ This award is proof that we’re trying to change that.”
