Detroit Free Press Again Names Seco Tools a Top 100 Workplace


For the second year in a row, The Detroit Free Press has named Seco Tools one of the Top 100 Workplaces in the entire state of Michigan, an honor bestowed by the Troy-based company’s employees. “This is certainly a proud moment for our company,” says Jennifer Ostroff, HR programs manager for Seco. “Our employees are our most valuable assets and the key to Seco’s success. Therefore we’re committed to keeping them motivated, engaged, and inspired. Earning this top workplace distinction a second time further validates our efforts.”

Employee feedback from a survey administered by Workplace Dynamics served as the foundation for this Top 100 Workplace competition. The survey drew responses from thousands of employees from 215 companies. Each employee responded to a set of statements about his or her workplace, ranging from “I believe this organization is going in the right direction” to “My pay is fair for what I do.” Seco’s commitment to its employees includes:

• Ensuring leaders inspire and build trust through transparency and accessibility;
• Offering comprehensive training
so employees achieve optimal performance;
• Building cross-functional teams to drive future company growth;
• Maintaining a comprehensive benefits plan that exceeds traditional practices, and;
• Providing an environment where employees feel valued and rewarded.

In addition to the 2011 Top Workplaces accolade, Seco recently earned its third acknowledgement from Corp! magazine for being one of “Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.” The company received the honor for its innovative employee-engagement strategies, which represent best practices in human resources.
