For the ninth year in a row, Mercantile Bank of Michigan has been selected as one of “West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For”, an award that we are very proud of achieving.
To be nominated, companies must recognize employees as their greatest asset and work with imagination and assurance to create exceptional work environments. After both a lengthy questionnaire and employee surveys, the competition identifies and then honors organizations throughout West Michigan that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. The questionnaire and survey focus on areas such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, recognition, retention and more. For nine years in a row, we have been both nominated and consequently, selected as a winner of this prestigious award.
For Mercantile Bank of Michigan, this award continues to
· Confirm to our directors, employees, customers, vendors, and the business community that Mercantile Bank of Michigan is committed to excellence;
· Give us an opportunity to create awareness and generate visibility to attract the Best & Brightest employees and customers; and
· Provide access to information on current trends and issues affecting the growth and success of West Michigan’s business community
On May 2nd, at a Gala event, in front of industry leaders, influencers and peers, we will be awarded a plaque along with 100 other Best and Brightest companies in the West Michigan region. We are thrilled to be a part of this elite group!
Thank you to all our directors and employees for making Mercantile Bank the BEST that it can be!
Congratulations to all the Winners!
