The Detroit Free Press Names GreenPath Financial Wellness a Winner of the Michigan Top Workplaces 2021 Award

FARMINGTON HILLS, Michigan – (BUSINESS WIRE) – GreenPath Financial Wellness, a national not-for-profit offering financial advice and debt management, was named Top Workplaces 2021 by the Detroit Free Press. The list is based solely on employee feedback collected through a third-party survey conducted by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any business: including alignment, execution and connection, to name a few.

“During these very challenging times, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon for companies and a mark of resilience and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to overcome challenges and shape your way forward. Top Workplaces leverage real-time insights into the most appropriate actions for their company so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their employees and their business. ”

Ranked among the top 25 percent of 2021 award winners, GreenPath received cultural badges for its efforts in these three areas: Trained Employees, Open-mindedness, and Supportive Managers. To maintain transparency and keep employees informed during the COVID-19 pandemic, GreenPath produced a weekly video every Friday to provide updates to the entire organization while working remotely. Supportive managers at GreenPath offered advice to employees needed during the pandemic through flexible schedules, grant circles, cash flow planning, unemployment benefits and paid time off. The survey results showed that GreenPath employees value the open-mindedness and inclusiveness of the nonprofit through the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) initiative, a company-wide commitment to corporate resources, interactions, practices, policies, systems, and processes to achieve that Foster engagement from employees, customers and communities towards the IDEA goals.

“Our employees are our greatest asset. That our employees recognize GreenPath as a top place to work and receive this award based on their feedback makes it profound, ”said Kristen Holt, President and CEO of GreenPath Financial Wellness. “We are very pleased about the positive response from employees to the IDEA initiative. Support for IDEA principles and practices is essential as we contribute to the financial well-being of our diverse customers and communities. ”

GreenPath’s mission – empowering people to lead financially healthy lives – is closely related to the work of IDEA. GreenPath will use the lessons learned during intra-community research to develop enhanced messaging and engaging products and services that best meet the needs of underserved communities. Greater diversity in GreenPath’s leadership and workforce, a better understanding of the individual and collective needs of its workforce, and an effort to recruit, develop, and access opportunity for all team members will help determine the success of the initiative.
