Often referred to as “the Academy Awards of Human Resources,” the Best and Brightest awards are revealed after a cumulative assessment of categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. The assessments are comprised of employee and employer surveys.

“We are honored to receive this award, because Etkin team members are a top priority in our day-to-day operations,” said Etkin President Curtis Burstein. “Our employees create value as the foundation of the company, and we plan to continue holding ourselves to the high standards that have allowed us to achieve this recognition.”

“We’re proud that this award highlights Etkin’s truly people-centered culture,” said Rebecca Lorenzetti, Etkin’s Human Resource Manager. “We’re always finding better ways to improve internal communication, employee well-being and overall corporate culture, and it’s great that it shows.”

Etkin, among other winners, will be recognized at a symposium hosted by the Michigan Business and Professional Association on September 17, 2015 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The event will feature ROSSETTI Principal and Director of Creative Design, Kelly Deines, IIDA, LEED AP, as a keynote speaker.
