Brose has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Detroit Free Press. The list is 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.”
Brose prides itself on providing a workplace that engages, motivates and rewards its employees. The company promotes communication, transparency and accountability to ensure all employees have the information they need while feeling empowered to make fast and accurate decisions. “We want our people to act like entrepreneurs with a continuous-improvement mindset. To achieve that goal, we need to give them our trust,” says Wilm Uhlenbecker, President Brose North America. “Since I joined the organization last July, I have been consistently impressed by the people of Brose North America, their competence, discipline and passion to succeed. They make Brose North America a great place to work.”
