BizStream Named a 2020 Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation

The National Association for Business Resources has released their Fall 2020 Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® in the Nation list, naming BizStream for the third year in a row. BizStream is a software company specializing in designing, supporting, and connecting digital marketing technology for enterprise companies. BizStream is located just outside of Grand Rapids, MI.

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention, and more. The fall Best and Brightest National winners honored 151 winning organizations from across the country out of 1,100 nominations. 

"Our team has had to overcome a lot of unexpected challenges this year. BizStream's strength normally comes from our close collaboration and culture. But with this year being what it is, we've found strength in our team members' pure determination and grit. Our entire team pushed hard to keep our attitudes positive and our culture as close to normal as we could. Our IT department did a great job ensuring everyone had what they needed to comfortably and productively work from home. Our Leadership and Organization Support teams worked hard to keep our team safe and their spirits high and found innovative ways to preserve our unique culture. Although we haven't been able to have our usual social gatherings and enjoy our typical office camaraderie, we've been able to connect with virtual happy hours, trivia games, and other celebrations. I'm incredibly proud of team BizStream for the way they've been able to pivot and for the way they've been able to support each other during this less than ideal year; it's because of the people that are on our team that we've been recognized multiple times as a National Best and Brightest Company to Work For," shares BizStream founder, Mark Schmidt

The national winners will be honored during the virtual Illuminate Business Summit week in spring 2021. During the Illuminate Business Summit, the 101 highest scoring national winning companies and the Elite awards will also be awarded to the highest winning companies demonstrating exceptional, innovative human resource practices and setting high standards for all businesses. 

“Through the first half of 2020, the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For have demonstrated leadership and forward-thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through Covid-19. It is in these unique times, the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For excel and share their knowledge with others," said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.

All 2020 companies that will be selected to be recognized nationally as a Best and Brightest
Company to Work For® will be featured in the online edition of Corp! Magazine.
