AUBURN HILLS, MI – Nov. 12, 2019Esys Automation, a JR Automation company, has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press for the sixth consecutive year. The rankings are based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by our employees as a Top Workplace for the sixth consecutive year,” says Kathie Belkowski, Director of People Engagement at Esys Automation. “Receiving this award year over year speaks volumes to the amazing organization we’ve built. As our company continues to grow, it’s extremely important that we maintain our innovative, collaborative culture and retain the expertise of our talented team members. We don’t take this achievement lightly and truly believe it’s our employees that make Esys such a special place to be.”

Esys is expanding! We are opening an additional 87,000 square-foot facility in Sterling Heights, set to open at the beginning of 2020. To accommodate our growth, we’ll be looking to fill many engineering and skilled manufacturing positions in the next six months. To explore all open positions and apply online, visit
