This is the first year Edcor has received the award. All winners will be honored at an event on Tuesday, October 22 at The Henry in Dearborn. 

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices. An independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories, including compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.  

Adrienne Way, owner and CEO of Edcor, was pleased to share the announcement. 

“As a company closely tied with the human resources field through Edcor solutions that help employers and employees work together to achieve their educational goals, it’s an honor to be recognized as an employer of choice in our own right,” Way said. “With almost 70% of our workforce completing the employee input survey required for the 101 Best award consideration, we really feel good about this acknowledgement.”
