Michigan has plenty of great places to work. But, what if you’re looking to change things up and find a new employer in the Keystone State? Thankfully, now we have a full list of the best companies to work for in the state, updated for 2022, thanks to the staff at Forbes.
The just-released study is Forbes’ fourth survey of the best employers. For it, the outlet looked at 1,382 companies in the United States and ranked them in each state, as well as Washington, D.C. The publication teamed up with market research company Statista to survey 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees.
“Whether working remotely or from the office, Americans’ priorities have changed,” Forbes states in the study. “Employers have had to motivate talent, combat burnout and ensure the well-being and safety of their workers, while pursuing profits amid a sensitive political landscape that spurred new levels of corporate activism – not to mention a growing divide in what people want from institutions and companies.”
Forbes adds, “It was against this backdrop that Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to compile our fourth annual list of America’s Best Employers By State. The list is divided into 51 rankings—one for each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia—and was compiled by surveying 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Surveys were conducted anonymously, allowing participants to freely share their opinions. The final list ranks the 1,382 employers that received the most recommendations.”
Read on for the full list of the top 25 companies to work for in Michigan. Some of the companies might surprise you, while others are perennial favorites. These companies, by the way, aren’t necessarily based in Michigan, but they employ the most in our state. Do you think there are any Michigan companies that should have made the tally?
