269 MAGAZINE’S Wonderful Workplaces

Ring! Ring! It’s 5:30 a.m. You hop out of bed, jump in the shower and steer your car towards the office. Your first meeting isn’t until 10:00 a.m., but you just can’t wait to get there. Why? You work in one of Southwest Michigan’s wonderful workplaces!

What makes your workplace special? Is it a fully stocked coffee bar brewing a fresh cup of java upon your arrival or the laughter you enjoy with your office mates around a more traditional percolator? Maybe it’s your leadership team working side-by-side with the entire team to beat the clock before that important project is due to the client. It might be because tomorrow is “bring your dog to work day.” It could be the place where creativity is bubbling over at a collaborative table. Or, it might be even be a space where the CEO’s door is always open to lend a thoughtful ear on what’s going on with you.

Our Holiday 2018 issue will recognize our region’s awesome work environments and the amazing cultures they support. We believe that what you do when you get to work and how you do it is affected by your environment. So, we are celebrating innovative work spaces that support fast-paced and fully integrated work styles and lifestyles.

We want everyone to know why where you work is wonderful. Tell us and we’ll tell everyone!
