BINGHAM FARMS, Mich., October 31, 2008 —Identity Marketing & Public Relations, a Bingham Farms, Mich.-based full-service marketing and public relations agency, has been selected by the Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA) as one of “Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.” Firm principals Paul Kesman, Mark Winter and Tom Nixon made the announcement.
The annual “101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For” listing features companies who recognize employees as their greatest asset and demonstrate best practices in human resources. Businesses who appeared on the 2008 listing were evaluated based on various workplace issues such as compensation and benefits, education and development initiatives, recruiting and retention practices, and community involvement. Identity was previously named one of the “101 Best and Brightest” in 2006.
“We are honored to once again receive such a prestigious designation,” said Kesman. “As a professional services firm, we recognize that our people are a vital component of our success. By incorporating unique programs that meet both the professional and personal needs of our staff and their families, we have created an environment that is not only fun and energetic, but also supportive and encouraging. This innovative business model has resulted in an extremely low turnover rate and a steady increase in personnel year after year.”
Identity will be recognized at a November 20 ceremony along with the other honorees at the Conference and Events Center in Dearborn, Mich.
