The Detroit Free Press has named Esys Automation one of the 100 Top Workplaces in Michigan.

More than 1,200 Michigan companies were invited to apply for Top Workplace recognition within categories of large, mid and small-sized companies. Esys ranks 18 in the Small Companies Group.

Top Workplaces winners are determined based solely on employee feedback that measures qualities such as company leadership, communication, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The employee survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, a leading research firm that conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 45 major publishing partners.

“Because our field is so incredibly demanding it is paramount we maintain a great culture and allow it to thrive. I am so proud to be part of a team that so clearly sees the importance and benefits of continually working to make our workplace better. Our work to maintain a great workplace is never over, but we will certainly take a moment and celebrate this achievement,” said Chris Marcus, CEO of Esys Automation.

Esys Automation was founded with an open book management system, allowing all of its employees to share in the financial success of the company through a Profit Sharing Plan. In addition, Esys offers competitive benefits including 401K matching, great healthcare benefits and numerous health and wellness resources and discounts.

What makes Esys stand out in the industry is its continuous focus on helping its employees develop their skills. Esys finds semi-annual employee reviews to be extremely beneficial in making sure each employee has personal goals that help them grow. In addition Esys encourages employees to continuously learn through 3rd party training classes as well as internal mentorship arrangements.

Since 2008, Esys has also given annual recognition through the Jack Flasch Award to one employee that is selected by their peers for exemplifying the traits of mentorship, loyalty, dedication and quality.

Esys also holds quarterly companywide meetings and distributes a quarterly newsletter to ensure that all employees are on the same page with Esys’ direction.

Esys plans numerous company events each year and invites employees and their family members to take a break from their busy work life and have some fun. Company events include a Company Picnic, Golf Outing, Tigers’ Game and Christmas Party. Esys and its employees also take pride in rallying together to give back to the community through events such as Desert Angels Miracle Box Packing Party and Toys for Tots fundraiser.

The 100 Top Workplaces in Michigan will be recognized on Wednesday, November 12th at the annual Top Workplaces breakfast which will feature keynote speaker Mark Fields, CEO, Ford Motor Co.
