Detroit, Michigan-–-October 25, 2019-–-Detroit-based management side labor and employment law firm Nemeth Law, P.C., is pleased to announce it received an ‘elite’ award in the category of work/life balance at the annual Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For event, held on October 22, 2019 at The Henry in Dearborn.
Nemeth Law, an 18-time recipient of Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For award, was one of 13 ‘elite’ companies highlighted for their best practices in HR programs. The firm was recognized in the work-life balance category because of its focus on flexible scheduling, strong encouragement for staff to use all of their vacation time, celebrations of personal victories and milestones, and unique holiday parties and social gatherings, among other work-life balance considerations.
The 101 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.
Patricia Nemeth, founder of Nemeth Law, P.C., was a working mother of a now 23-year-old daughter while building up the 27-year old firm. She says work-life balance is a critical and sometimes challenging issue for both employers and employees.
“Both employers and employees struggle with introducing and sustaining work-life balance initiatives because there is generally pressure on both sides to get work out the door and be a team player at the same time,” Nemeth said. “Our firm made it a priority to respect and respond to the needs of our clients while acknowledging that the whole person comes to work – and creating policies and traditions that reflect that. It’s truly gratifying that Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For singled out Nemeth Law for this special honor.”
